    Greetings Mini-Torquers I removed my R53’s front end to discover oil pooling on the plastic “super-charger intake”. (i.e. the black bit of plastics tubing that connects the throttle body to the super-charger.) The quantity is enough to drip down on to the oil pan over time. Here’s the...

    Hi everyone, so today I heard a very awful noise from the engine area of my car (facelift R50). It was a horrible rattle, which scared me. This was mid journey (10 minute journey) when it started and only seemed to be happening when above 2,000RPM. I pulled over to have a look under the bonnet...

    I've had a bit of an issue and am quite worried... I did an oil check the other week and there was no oil whatsoever on the dipstick (not too worried since I rarely drive the car), so I bought a 4 litre bottle of oil to fill it up. Being rather clumsy and with little thought I just poured the...
