What year, model and or engine size?


minicoopers are notorious for oil consumption issues, be sure to vet out a used one well before you buy.

I have a 2011 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works with the sports package (1.6 liter engine). It REQUIRES premium gas. It's a sports car so I use synthetic oil and change it every 3,000-5,000 miles. Religiously. It's not worth risking any longer.
