I bought it with 89,000km. It's been about 2 weeks, I'm at 91,500. I guess that's about 50,000 miles.

How long do you go before oil changes? My BMW/Mini dealer says it should be 18,000km (11K miles?) or once a year on full synthetic...

lol, yah, my obc says 15k between changes.
i do half that with mobil1.

i'm at 91k on my car now. watch out for the power steering pump, they are very very common to go out. the control arm bushings i'm betting are bad on your car also. seems to happen to every mini and a lot of bmw's.
i got prepressed poly bushings from waymotorworks.com took about 8 hours to install dropping the subframe.

Sold the GTI to a dealer, I had a bad a noisy rear wheel bearing, timing belt/water pump coming up, rust spot on the fender, and A LOT of long term issues/concerns with the engine. DSG got boring after a few years, and it wasn't a good DD, or good AutoX car, just too much in between.


2001 BMW 330i sport package, manual, grey interior.
- Currently has a square 255 Star Spec setup, new suspension within the last year (ZHP dampeners), underdrive pullies, and an ECU programmer that's deactivated right now.
- It needs A LOT of detailing, a few rough spots, but nothing crazy. Have new aftermarket control arms coming as the ball joints have some play in them.
- Used to run at National SCCA Solo events in STX, pretty competitively.

I'll probably find some LED tails, new lights up front, do an all LED light setup, some sort of iPod connection, and maybe some sport springs/sway bars in the next year or so.

Still had cone scuffs on it when I picked it up
