#229 of 393 Another extended Maintenance question
Apr 23, 2009 (7:31 am)
I know this question has been asked to death, but I don't know very much about cars and I'd really like answers geared towards my specific car/maintenance offer.
I drive a 2006 cooper. Currently, I drive about 80 miles a day, but that will only be until march of 2010 (the job ends then), and then I will be taking the subway and not driving.
I live in nyc so I won't be driving very much after march of 2010. The car currently has 54,000 miles on it. I am not an aggressive driver at all.
Mini has offered a $2,000 extended maintenance for 50K miles or 3 years, whatever comes first.
Is it worth it? Any thought are appreciated.

Could you tell me how much you paid for the freon leak repair?
I am going to get mine repaired tomorrow and would love to know in advance how much this is going to cost me UGH
Are you still having issues with your A/C?
#231 of 393 Maintenance program
May 04, 2009 (12:13 pm)
I'm looking at a used 07 Cooper S with only 8000 miles at a non-Mini dealer. Are used cars still eligible for the maintenance program (was it even offered in 07) if they are still under warranty and within the mileage and year range? Thanks.

I bought my 06 S from a non dealer. The dealer has cover the work that was done.
So yes you still get covered.
#233 of 393 black trim
May 08, 2009 (7:06 pm)
The black trim around the top of my new Cooper(less than 2 months old) is fading in areas. There is about a six inch strip on one side and almost that much on the other. The trim on my 2002 Honda looks better than the trim on the Mini. Is there anything to put on it as a treatment to protect and/or bring the color back. This is really disgusting considering the age of this car. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm looking at a 03 cooper S with 61,000 on it. What are some of the issues you guys have run across with the earlier models?

I use One Grand E.R.V. (Exterior Rubber & Vinyl) dressing on my 03 Coop and the black trim looks like new. It restored from faded to black. after a few applications you can apply it less often. it will protect the trim from the white streaks you get when you wax your car and get some on the trim, I get it from www.carcareonline.com. Also use One Grand Blitz wax (pure hard carnuba with no abrasives or silicone) which keeps the finish looking like new and P21S body shampoo for washing and P21S gel wheel cleaner for that pesky brake dust.
Carcare will tell you what you need and how to clean any thing on your vehicle, paint, rubber, vinyl, glass, upholstery etc.

I would put away about 5k for the transmission when it goes.
That might be lite.
