The Mini, made a memorable return in 2001 under BMW’s guise, but maintained a great deal of the charm that made the original so popular.
In this issue we are focusing mainly on the second generation Mini that not only saw changes to the outside and the interior but also under the bonnet.
The new range of Minis saw a 1.4L petrol engine join the 1.6L equivalent and a new diesel range to cover the Mini One, Cooper and Cooper S models. The second generation also saw its range expand to include the Clubman and Van, Roadster, Coupé, Countryman and Paceman, to join the established hatch and convertible.
The new engines and models will provide technicians with additional challenges, some of which we have outlined below.
Next month we’ll be looking at the Renault Clio, so if you have expertise, knowledge and insight to share, we would be delighted to hear from you. To get your advice included contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
