Heading to Florida last year, we had a tire incident which Prestige MINI saved by fitting two runflats to GPMINI; now before GPMINI’s big drive, I took her to MINI of Orlando today to get the other tires switched back to runflats too, and to get an engine inspection and oil change. All this was done, but took over four hours thanks to some siezed tie rods delaying wheel alignment. Happily though, apart from that, all is well with GPMINI – and very helpful Bryan, Service Manager there, has promised to goodwill change the tie rods when GPMINI returns from her trip, even though she will be a couple weeks out of warranty by then.
Meanwhile, some pics – here is GPMINI fighting against wheel alignment:
And here’s a few pictures of the HUGE dealership showroom / waiting room area:
