Mini Oil and Filter Change
In addition to oil and filter changes, AutoHaus of Boulder will perform a full inspection of your Mini including topping off tire air pressure to spec and all fluids with factory grade fluids.

Mini Tune Up
Mini Driveability Problems
From check engine lights to uncommon engine noise, AutoHaus of Boulder has seen or heard it before and can easily fix the problem. Surprisingly, you can be experiencing drivability problems without the check engine illuminated. That is why you can always bring your Mini to AutoHaus of Boulder, and we will check your Mini, giving you an honest evaluation of the current “state of tune” of your Mini.
Mini Brake Repair
Depending on how you drive your Mini, we recommend bringing your Mini into AutoHaus of Boulder every 30,000 to 60,000 miles to get your Mini’s breaks inspected. AutoHaus of Boulder offers all original equipment, OE and aftermarket options to repair your Mini’s breaks.
Recommended by almost all manufacturers including Mini to have a break fluid flush performed every two years. Over time, brake fluid collects moisture that lowers the boiling temperature, which is critical for your system to provide the needed brake pressure to stop your vehicle.
Mini Used Car Evaluations
We look at every component possible, scan all electrical systems and give you our best opinion on the current condition of the vehicle. Remember, the “Pre-purchase inspection is always cheaper than the post-purchase inspection.”
Mini Alternators, Batteries and Starters
The starter, once provided with power, is what turns your engine over to get it to start-up and run. Alternators provide the power to the vehicle and keeps the battery charged once the engine is running.
These systems should be checked yearly, especially in Colorado where we get extreme temperature changes. We provide free inspection for your starting and charging system so you can have the peace of mind that your Mini will start-up every time especially in the frigid winter temperatures.
Mini Extended Warranty Repair
Mini Muffler’s and Performance Exhaust Systems
Most manufacturers including Mini leave plenty of room for improvement when it comes to horsepower and torque. That’s not to say that these vehicles are poorly made, but many companies will choose the least expensive alternative when it comes to items such as exhaust systems.
An aftermarket performance exhaust from APR can free some of the power in your engine. APR performance exhaust systems allow a quicker and more efficient path for exhaust gases to escape. This means your engine “breathes” better, so spent fuel and air exit the combustion chambers faster, resulting in a more efficient engine that creates more power when you buzz over the mountain passes.
AutoHaus of Boulder can install performance APR and other brand’s cat-back and turbo-back exhaust systems to increase the performance of your Mini.
Mini Steering and Suspension
Our trained ASE Mini technicians will check your suspension components including tie rod ends, steering rack, power steering pump and hose, power steering fluid in addition to control arms, bushings, ball joints and wheel bearings. If you hear weird noises when you drive over bumps or simply turning into a parking space, bring your Mini to AutoHaus of Boulder, and we will find the problem and fix it.
Mini Fuel System Service
Did you know that most of today’s vehicles have two fuel pumps? One fuel pump is in the fuel tank, and the other high-pressure fuel pump is bolted to the engine.
We check these fuel pumps and the entire fuel system clean the system with fuel injector cleaner with each service. We will recommend which service is due for your Mini dependent upon your mileage and past service history.
Mini Coolant Systems
Our trained ASE Mini technicians will inspect your entire cooling system and hoses of your Mini every time you bring your vehicle in for service.
Mini Air Conditioning Service
Our service also includes re-charging your air conditioning system with the specified amount of Freon and installing dyed oil so that if there is a leak in the system in the future we will have a trail to follow to find the leak.
Our trained ASE Mini technicians will test your system to make sure it is cooling to the proper temperature. If there is a problem with the system, our technicians are trained to diagnose the issue and replace the appropriate components to fix your Mini’s air conditioning system.
Mini Timing Belt Service
To prevent this, AutoHaus of Boulder can replace the timing belt and associated components before they become an issue. Depending on your Mini’s service interval, timing belts should be replaced every 75 to 90 thousand miles. Replacing your Mini’s timing belt is extremely important and should not be postponed past the recommended service interval.
