Meets ACEA A5/B5, API SN
BMW Longlife-01 FE
For Gasoline engines

If you own the Cooper S model with the Turbocharged engine, we STRONGLY recommend you change the motor oil more frequently than the factory recommendation. Anecdotal evidence suggests Turbo's with more frequent oil changes have fewer issues. We suggest 5000 mile oil change interval or less. Make sure you use FULL SYNTHETIC motor oil with the ACEA (Association des Constructeurs Europeens d'Automobiles) A3/B3 specification.


Factory oil recommendations may change over time.  Although we do our best to provide the most up-to-date information, always check with the factory for the current recommendations.

For Gen 1 (R50/52/53), 2002-2006 Hardtop and 2005-2008 Convertibles, the Factory approves FULL SYNTHETIC SAE 5W-30 (recommended) and 5W-40, API SM.

For the Gen 2 (R55/56/57/58/59/60/61) 2007-2016 MINI Models, approved oils are FULL SYNTHETIC SAE 0W-40, 0W-30 (recommended), 5W-40, 5W-30 (we recommend). API SM or higher, ACEA A3/B4.

For Gen 3 (F56/F55/F57/F54/F60) 2014-2017models, factory recommends FULL SYNTHETIC SAE 0W-20 (recommended), 0W-30, SAE 5W-20, SAE 5W-30, SAE0W-40 or 5W-40. Approved oil types include BMW Longlife-01 and BMW Longlife-01 FE, API SL or superior grade specification.  2018-2021 models, factory recommends FULL SYNTHETIC SAE 0W-20 (recommended) or 0W-30. Approved oil types include BMW Longlife-01 FE and BMW Longlife-14 FE+, API SL, SM or SN grade specification.


For Gen 2 (R60/R61) models:

  • Oil filter cannister to 25Nm or 18 lb-ft
  • Oil Pan Drain plug to 30Nm or 22 lb-ft

Drain plug can be 8mm Allen or T-50 Torx. To reset the oil change interval in your MINI, see oil service reset. (If your MINI is still under the free factory maintenance program, don't reset the interval.)

Start the engine and check for oil pressure. Don't forget to check for leaks too!

For additional protection, take a look at our Magnetic Oil Drain Plug for Gen 2 models.

It helps if you 'loosen' the oil filter cannister while you drain the oil to allow the oil to drain out of the filter. You will spill less oil this way. (Gen3 oil filter housing has a drain plug for draining oil from the filter)

Before you press the filter into the cannister cover, press it into the filter base 'all the way' and remove to prep the filter for proper seating. Now you can press filter into the cannister cover and install.

Remember to use the new O-ring on the cannister cover - LIBERALLY coat the new o-ring with clean oil so it doesn't bind. Start the cannister cover by hand to avoid cross-threading.

Don't pollute. Conserve resources. Return used oil to collection centers.
