Looking for a MINI Garage in London?

In years gone by, you weren’t able to shop around for the best price for repairs and servicing from an independent MINI garage in London without it affecting your warranty. Before European legislation that came into force in 2004, it was very difficult to have your new MINI serviced outside a franchised dealer.

How to save money on a MINI service

But now you are no longer tied to the higher prices charged by your local MINI service dealer. Independent garages like Waterfall can maintain and service your MINI from brand new, using genuine MINI parts, without it affecting your warranty. In fact, following the introduction of the EU competition legislation, it is actually against the law for motor manufacturers to attach servicing ties to their new vehicle warranties. The Office of Fair Trading has had the authority to apply the EC competition rules since May 2004.

Meet our resident MINI Genius!

MINI expert Dave Cruttenden

As an independent MINI garage in London, Waterfall has its own resident MINI performance tuning and mechanical genius, founder and co-director of the company Dave Cruttenden.

Dave has been into MINIs since the 1980s, he’s both owned and raced them, and is a big fan of the ‘new’ version as well as the originals. What Dave doesn’t know about MINIs is hardly worth knowing! Recently he’s been rebuilding and tuning a 2004 MINI Cooper S…

Read about Dave’s latest MINI rebuild and performance improvements

Initially the project vehicle, a MINI Cooper S was recovered and delivered to Waterfall Garage in Wimbledon, South London.

Initial diagnostics revealed a timing correlation issue so an engine strip down was begun, including removal of the intercooler and cam cover. Initial diagnostics revealed a problem with low compression, that the camchain had jumped, and when the cylinder head was removed it revealed that the MINI had 16 bent valves.

With this amount of damage it was decided to remove the MINI engine completely and carryout a full engine rebuild, as well as to make additional performance modifications, including:

  • Replacing the MINI’s clutch
  • Lightening & balancing the flywheel
  • Enlarging the crank pulley diameter
