MINIs in the workshop


Your MINI is built with an intelligent maintenance system called Condition Based Servicing (CBS). This system permanently monitors a range of factors. These include oil levels and the extent of wear on certain components of your MINI. It also checks the time/mileage recommendations for fixed services and analyses this data to calculate when your next service is due.

Data can also be checked on your car’s Info Display in the dashboard, which automatically provides you with four week notice period of when a *fixed service is due.

If a more pressing problem is detected with a component, MINI Connected Drive system will give you more exact information on what needs to be checked, and provide advice on any changes to driving style or any actions which need to be taken to help protect against further damage.


Planning for the road ahead has never been easier. With the Sandal MINI Pay Monthly Service Plan you can remove the associated uncertainty with car servicing costs by spreading the cost monthly, similarly to your household bills.

The monthly plan is a fixed cost which is determined by the amount of mileage you cover annually, the amount of mileage your MINI has covered and where you are within your service cycle. The service cost is fixed for its duration and inflation proof. If you ever come to sell your MINI, you have the option to keep the plan and transfer any unused balance to your new MINI or have any unused monies returned to you. (minus a small admin fee).

In addition, your Sandal Pay Monthly Service Plan is suitable for any age of vehicle and comes with a number of additional extras to further help you to get the most out of your MINI. These include:

  • One free MOT
  • A Wash & Vac each time you come in for a service
  • Seasonal Health Checks
  • Sat Nav Map Updates
  • Free Fluid Top Ups
