Who has the highest mileage F56?

Good morning everyone.


Out of curiosity, who here has the highest mileage F56? Any issues? Any complaints? Anything to look for?


My F56 currently has 48k miles, I almost feel as if its getting old!!

However, I haven't had any issues. Well, nothing serious.

At 40k miles both control arm bushings went out ( common problem, BMW has a service bulletin out for this issue ) Covered under warranty, they replaced both control arms, and bushings.

I think that's the only issue I've had with this car, and I've owned it since 20k miles, which was only last MARCH!

Oooh close, mine's at 47k, and in for it's last TLC service today.


Nothing major to report in that time, brake pads al round, foglights replaced under warranty, and a funny 'gearbox' noise when not going very fast - still being looked at.

It's a funny one, if I'm in a 30mph limit for example, and cruising in 3rd/4th, it's like a whine, loud enough that I can hear it and not the engine. They hear the noise on testing, which is a good start, and the techy thinks it might be wheel bearings, so they're being replaced tomorrow. I feel it's a transmission thing, but I'll wait and see, new bearings will not do any harm after all.

Hi. Interesting post. My mini has done 61k miles.
The air intake manifold, new egr valve and other engine parts were completely coked up after 50k.
Had a new gate and gear stick as kept popping out of first.
Had new front seats as they were squeaking.
All done under warranty so a happy customer.
Car is a mini Cooper Dooper.

Wow that's alot! What were the causes for these repairs? How did you know they needed to be fixed? What were the symptoms of these issues?

The engine management light came on and progressively the engine power became less smooth, really laggy, almost coughy feel and felt it was missing a few torques.
The seats were squeaking. Didn't expect them to completely swap them. Good for me though but car goes back soon.

Hi there, sorry didn't get the expression 'completely coked up'. Do you mean something in particular like carbon build-ups or other, or just speaking in general that were malfunctioning?

Yes. I meant the carbon build up. Apparently cleaning the engine is called de-coking.
