When BMW introduced the new MINI Cooper in 2000, adding MINI to the Nikolas Motorsport service line was a natural. The new MINI Coopers share many technology and diagnostic platforms with the BMW vehicles. They look considerably different, most are front wheel drive cars, and the engines have been developed separately. However, the similarities in engineering, maintenance, and repair, have made MINI a great fit. Also, many of the MINI attributes have made many of our BMW customers cross over to also be MINI customers. In any case, when it comes to service or repair for your MINI, Nikolas Motorsport is again your “Dealership Alternative”.

Nikolas Motorsport has the diagnostic capabilities and technical resources to handle all maintenance on your MINI, as well as the expertise to handle any complicated diagnosis or repair. We specialize in providing personal service, and recognize the importance of using only the best original equipment parts, fluids and supplies on your MINI. We provide service and repair to all newer MINIs, including R50, R52, R53, R55, R56, and R57 chassis designations. Some of our most typical services include:
