2013 R60 cooper SD Auto N47 diesel

Post by ghsaunders40 » 21 Nov 2016, 08:28

Hi all.

I have a 2013 cooper SD auto. The car has 28k with a full Mini history and additional oil changes. I'm not happy with the noise the engine makes. I've taken the car to Mini and they tell me is normal, but to me it's too loud and an undertone of something other than diesel clatter. Any opinions will be appreciated.

Hmm. Never owned one but seen/heard plenty and whilst they're not a quiet/smooth as some diesels, they're not usually that loud. Assuming the oil is good, I'd simply ask the dealer to listen to another one (once warmed up, similar age/mileage if poss)?

That will give you some confidence....or not.
