What’s the right oil type for a MINI Cooper?

I could have sworn I got my oil changed a couple of months ago, but my wife is telling me I never did! I’m just going to do an oil change myself to be safe—but I’m not sure what type of oil to get for my MINI Cooper.

The right oil type for your MINI Cooper is synthetic 0W-30 motor oil. This is what MINI recommends for all MINI vehicles to keep your car happy and healthy. The owner’s manual of your car should indicate which type of oil you need—or, you can always contact your local dealer for their input.
No matter what, always verify you are using the correct type of oil in your car. Using the wrong type of motor oil can seriously damage your engine and cost you time and money!
