The New 2012 Mini Cooper Coupe

The new Mini Cooper Coupe delights and surprises those who doubt in… It is more than a mini.

2012 Mini Cooper Coupe

Why this car exist? This one a question asked by a friend who rode as a passenger in a new 2012 Mini Cooper Coupe.

It is fact, the Mini range seems to be moving further a way from its roots with each new model, but this coupe is a very different.

It is a coupe and it competes with the Audi TT which is more expensive, also it competes with several different  European  models. Those models like VW Scirocco, Peugeot RCZ. are not available here in North America.

This Mini is designed as a sport car for those looking something different, and in that respect it works, it is a very eye catching car.

The model on the photo is black with silver roof, and racing stripes. With the fancy artistic paint work it looks fantastic. The low roof is helmet like, no wonder it has nickname “Toupee”. If you sit inside, you will realize, the visibility is not great at all.

The windows are tinny and the rear view is further reduced when the driver flick the switch to activate the spoiler.

The interior is pure MINI, with a huge speedometer in the center and industrial switchgear. Build quality is second to none and  with, with everything feeling solid and high quality.

But out on the road where it matters. The two-liter 143hp diesel engine is quick and very responsive. Steering is more than entire precise. The grip is outstanding and there’s excellent feedback from the car at all speeds, even in wet and slippery condition.

This along with the fantastic economy and low emissions makes it hard to beat in its class.

Lubro Moly – Liqui Moly – Line Of Lubricants And Additives

Auto Bild, auto motor and sport and Auto Zeitung readers have selected LIQUI MOLY (used to be LUBRO Moly) to be their favorite brand of lubricant.

Auto Bild German Automotive MagazineIn 2012 the motor oil and additive expert LIQUI MOLY was again voted to be Germany’s favorite brand of lubricant. In the Auto Zeitung and auto motor and sport reader polls.

The German company  achieved first place again in the lubricant category, defending its title earned the previous year. Auto Bild polled its readers for the first time. Here as well the majority gave LIQUI MOLY first place.

About LIQUI MOLY

LIQUI MOLY develops and tests their products in their own laboratories, manufactures exclusively in Germany and markets all of their products themselves.

________

LIQUI MOLY (German motor oil and additive specialist, well know it’s Liqui Moly synthetic motor oils line) emphasizes their additives being effective. So they asked the independent German test facility APL to run a series of tests with LIQUI MOLY additives.

APL certified that additives really help against friction and fuel consumption. They tested Cera Tec, Injection Cleaner and Super Diesel Additive – with astonishing results.

Cera Tec is a high tech oil additive containing tiny ceramic particles to protect the engine and to reduce wear. It was tested for its seizure protection properties. One gear wheel drove another one under constantly increasing load until the wheels reached a certain degree of wear. The standard oil reached level four, the same oil with Cera Tec reached level nine. This underlines the excellent wear protection Cera Tec is able to deliver: The engine enjoys enhanced lifetime, experiences a lowered risk of breakdowns and due to reduced friction also fuel consumption will be reduced.

Injection Cleaner is a petrol additive to clean the injection system and the valves. For the test, two engines ran for 60 hours, one on standard fuel and the other with standard fuel plus Injection Cleaner.

During these 60 hours the first engine collected 0.3 gram deposits in each valve. Those deposits continued to grow and to impair the proper “breathing” of the engine. The second engine with Injection Cleaner remained practically clean with only 0.03 gram deposits. At the beginning of the test, the APL engineers were rather skeptical about the product. Now they use it to clean their test engines. What does it telling you?

Brake Fluid Flush

Brake fluids are by nature hygroscopic which means they absorb water from the air (humidity, like magnet attracts the metal shavings). Due to this property the brake fluid became corrosive.  There is an increasing awareness of the dangers of water induced corrosion in the modern brake/traction/dynamic stability control systems.

I have been a customer of Techmax since the year 2003 and I have to say, I am so happy with the quality of the service over so many years that I could not trust (and have not trusted) my cars to another mechanic, even to the dealerships (with the exception of warranty issues).

Speaking of my cars, they have always been BMW’s (mostly used), ranging from more reliable 3 series to not so reliable 7 series models.

I have proudly referred many friends and family members, most of whom drive BMW’s or other German cars, to Techmax and they have all been very satisfied. Continue Reading…

I own a 2002 VW Jetta 1.8T and was having several of problems such as: horrible fuel efficiency, cylinder misfires, engine running lean and a noticeable hissing sound on acceleration. I took my car to the VW dealership and two other garages and none of them could figure out what the problem was. Instead they did trial and error and replaced parts that did not need replacing. My friend recommended Techmax to me and said they are the BEST.

I was not let down! Not only did they fix the problems, they also found other problems and fix those too. Techmax saved me a lot of money and time. A week after the repair they followed up to see how the car was running. Continue Reading…

Just a little late note of appreciation to you and Tony for the exhaustive work on finding a solution to the turbo issue. I know it was very frustrating for you as well as me. Especially, being a sales rep without a car. It’s like you trying to be a mechanic without tools. Well, the Jetta runs wickedly now!! And it is great to have my power doors working again – thanks Tony. Continue Reading…

I brought over my Z4 on Saturday because of a ting ting ting noise and you hammered the brake pad. I left you’re shop Saturday and the noise was gone. I’ve waited and waited and the noise is still gone, you’re the best!! I won’t need my appointment of Friday to change the brakes.

In fact I think you made the brake pad sit better as there is less play when I hit the pedal, more responsive. For some reason the other brake pad that should make noise, does not. I’m just happy that there is no more ting ting ting every time I drive. Continue Reading…

Recommending everyone I know to your shop. If you own a BMW and need help, take it to Techmax.

I took my car to BMW dealership for an ABS, traction control error. They charged me 160.00 to diagnose and another 800.00 to fix. It took them two weeks to get the part and the end result was that they did NOTHING. Same error, no change and most importantly, they don’t care.

I took my car to Techmax, within one hour I received a call saying my car was fixed, a broken wire that needed to be soldered back together. Techmax also took the time to do a full diagnosis of my car and informed me of worn parts and of a broken spring that BMW dealership somehow did not notice. Continue Reading…

I am one of those many people who can drive a car, but repairs are very intimidating. I have only been coming to you for five years, and every time I leave my car with great confidence. When I pick up my vehicle I always feel that I have gotten more than my money’s worth.

While you were on holidays I was having problems with my car and had gone to the dealer in Mississauga as well as another place near my business in Burlington. I was quoted from $1700.00 to $2200.00 and very conflicting explanations on the problem.

Thankfully I was able to wait until you returned, my cost was $400.00 and none of the reasons I was quoted. I will always remember how upset you were about the cover the dealer ship broke for the air cleaner during the time they checked my car, not only did you repair it, I left realizing what a perfectionist you are.

I just wanted to say thanks for installing my catback system! I was incredibly happy with the service and friendliness of your whole team. Everyone was knowledgeable, and answered every question I had without hesitation. It was impressive, and better then the, “let me find out” answer I have received from many other shops.

Not only did you give me answers, I was very thankful for your team pointing out some warranty fixes that I will be able to get done. Doesn’t get more honest then that, and it’s hard to find when it comes to cars, and me being a young guy. Continue Reading…

I am writing to thank you and offer my recommendation of your shop to anyone that may be in question.

Unbeknownst to me My Mercedes Benz E class was serving as a home to a family of mice. One of the little critters had eaten their way through a wire and had eaten the shielding off another.

I took my vehicle to the Mercedes dealer first, as the car is still under warranty. I had no idea what was wrong that day I only knew that my car was not running properly. Mercedes diagnosed the problem as “mice that had eaten through the wiring” and charged me $150 for the diagnosis. Their repair estimate was $1,800 dollars. Parts, a new wiring harness, and labor of 6 hours to install. It was described as a “major repair”.

I was told that this would not be considered a warranty repair (understandable) and that the cost would be solely born by me. Continue Reading…

I have been coming to Techmax for a number of years and wanted to share with you my comments.

You guys are awesome. Keep up the outstanding service. It’s a rare commodity to have people as friendly as you and always willing to help. Aside from the friendly and warm atmosphere, you guys are extremely knowledgeable and in my opinion, the best in the business. I have been to a number of shops in the past and none came close to you.

All of you guys are very methodical and thorough. At the end of the day, I have an incredible peace of mind knowing that my car is in your hands. There is non better. Another amazing quality of yours is that you extend that excellent quality of service to everyone who walks through your door. Continue Reading…

Michelin Tire Against Yokohama Advan Sport Tire

Michelin Tire next to Yokohama tire

Did you know that, Yokohama Advan Sport tire is the choice of some of the most coveted car manufacturers, like Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin, just to mention a few?

Because Yokohama Advan Sport Tires made with NANO technology, with layering of the rubber.

Also Yokohama Advan Sport will stay super quiet over the years. I guess that says it all.

If you ever had a noisy tire on your fine car, than you know that, that is one of the most annoying and bothering thing, that could have ruins the whole driving experience.

One more thought. You can see the Yokohama Advan’s label on the tire at right. The left tire is a used Michelin. Both tire marked as the same size, however the Yokohama is almost 1 inch wider…

Looks like, who ever choose Yokohama, will get more rubber for the money,  but if you buy tire, than that would be your money, so you decide.
