On-board Monitoring. Let your MINI be your guide.

Your built-in guardian angel.

Your MINI knows instinctively when it’s time for a service, thanks to its integrated on-board maintenance system. Condition Based Service (CBS) continually monitors the health of your MINI, and only notifies you that a service is required when it’s genuinely necessary. It will also notify you when a standard inspection or a statutory vehicle inspection is coming up. Better for you, better for your MINI.

How it works.

How often your MINI needs servicing depends on its condition and your driving style. Built-in sensors monitor important components like brake pads, engine oil and brake fluid levels. All the information is saved on your MINI key, so your dealer can instantly see what needs servicing – and only ever does what’s needed.

What MINI looks out for.

Engine oil.

The display tells you how much time is left before the next oil change is due, or how far you can drive. Depending on your driving style, the first oil change is usually after you’ve driven 20,000 km, then every 30,000 km after that. What’s more, we’ll replace it with MINI Original Engine oil - it’s been custom-blended to meet the exact requirements of your MINI’s engine, keeping it healthier for longer than inferior engine oils can.

 

Front brake pads.

Your MINI evaluates data from a sensor to the left of the front axle to monitor wear and tear. So it lets you know in good time when your front brake pads need replacing.

 

Rear brake pads.

Your MINI evaluates data from a sensor to the right of the rear axle to monitor wear and tear. So it lets you know in good time when your rear brake pads need replacing.

 

Vehicle check.

MINI reminds you when a full inspection is required, including testing of your brakes, steering, transmission and all other essential checks. Instead of going by fixed intervals, your car calculates when a service is needed by taking into account how frequently you use your MINI and the way you drive it. So it’s only serviced when absolutely necessary.

 

Brake fluid.

At the push of a button, your MINI tells you when its brake fluid needs changing – usually once every two years.
