MINIs tend to cost the owner $100 for a scheduled oil change. This is primarily because the MINI specialist has to move the coolant overflow reservoir out of the way and get to the actual filter housing, which can be a little tricky. Additionally, MINI recommends using their High Performance Synthetic 5W-30 Oil, which is actually made by Castrol for BMW high-performance engines, so there’s that increase as cost as well.

“I am new to the Sarasota area and have a Mini Cooper convertible S. I had tried multiple places (including driving all the way up to tampa!) looking for a mechanic that I could trust and who also had decent prices. I felt very comfortable with my car in the hands of Jesse’s Garage, and was very pleased with my service. I will definitely be returning with my mini-and all future cars! Thank you Jesse!”
