Service Icons.

What are Service Icons?
Depending on the age of your MINI, your vehicle will be fitted with either the Condition Based Servicing (CBS) or Service Interval Indicator (SII) system; both of which will alert you through dashboard symbols, when your MINI needs attention.

Condition Based Servicing (CBS).

Newer MINI models feature Condition Based Servicing (CBS). This system actively monitors various service components for wear, ensuring that your MINI only requests attention when it needs it.

When your MINI does require servicing a CBS icon will display on your dashboard. In addition to this, the vehicle data is stored in your key and read using the MINI KeyReader, allowing the MINI Service team to quickly identify your needs.

Service Interval Indicator (SII).

MINI models built before the introduction of CBS utilise the Service Interval Indicator (SII). This system monitors the mileage of the vehicle and the time since its last service. A variety of dashboard icons will be displayed when it requires a formal Service or Inspection.

How to check what service your vehicle needs with CBS.

At MINI we believe in keeping our customers informed about how certain aspects of their cars work. The above video will help you find out what your car needs.
