Onboard Monitoring. MINI instincts.
Your built-in oracle.
Your MINI knows automatically when it’s time for a service, thanks to its integrated onboard maintenance system. Condition Based Service (CBS) continually monitors the health of your MINI, and only tells you that a service is needed when it really is. It will also let you know 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 things like brake pads, engine oil and brake fluid levels. All of the information is then saved on your MINI key, so your MINI Centre can instantly see what needs doing – and only ever does what’s needed.

What MINI looks out for.
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 12,500 miles, then every 18,000 miles 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 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.
You'll be reminded by your MINI 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.
At the push of a button, your MINI tells you when its brake fluid needs changing – usually once every two years.
