Roaring engine sound still excites me – Mini Cooper fanactic’s story

Yes, you got that right about me. I am a Mini fanatic!

From the moment, I saw the movie “Italian Job” my heart was pumping for a Mini Cooper. However, I wanted to wait for the diesel model as opposed to a gasoline because of the turbo engine. Diesel Mini Coopers are stronger and faster than a gasoline with “S” (fast) option.

Mini Cooper S, Gasoline – I look for Mini Coopers on the street wherever I travel.

About four years ago, I bought a Mini Cooper diesel. Interesting thing about Mini Coopers, It’s not just a car, from the moment you start driving it, your life style changes. At first, I thought this is just me, but I met a lot of Mini Cooper users who claims the same opinion.

 I don’t understand selfie, why do you care for your picture so much daily basis? Maybe understandable on special occasions but it shouldn’t be daily. Don’t get me wrong, this is purely my opinion. But this contracts my behavior toward Mini Coopers. I take photos of my Mini Cooper almost every time I wash it. Then one day, it occurs to me that selfie and photos of one’s own car seem like a similar behavior.
Well who cares, I simply like the Mini Cooper.

Fun Driving!
Often times, you hear these phrases about the Mini Cooper. I couldn’t agree with those more. It’s so tiny, so you hear roaring engine sound very close to you. Some might say, sound proof is very important for comfortable driving experience, but I don’t look for it. I crave for “Fun Driving”. Roaring engine sound is the key component of experiencing fun in driving.
Then one day, I saw a diesel car gave off black smoke out of its exhaustion pipe. It was disgusting. Evidently, the car with the black smoke did not speed up even with screaming engine sound.
Soon I found that this is because of diesel carbon sludge which can happen to any diesel turbo engine cased car. The reason the car I saw particularly gave off black smoke is because the car didn’t have good DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter : cleaning bad smoke process)

I am terrified to know this because I believed diesel car is very clean car, even better than gasoline but with more power. This is true until carbon sludge is building up inside the intake manifold.

How can I keep it clean?
I don’t want to disassemble my engine regularly. That sounds like big risks. Anything can go wrong in the process of disassemble the engine and reassemble it. Thanks to my love for Mini Coopers, this concern was killing me.

Suddenly the classic gasoline Mini looks a way better than my diesel Mini. However, over the years, I know that if you’re desperate enough, you will find a solution for you.
Well luckily I found mine. “Desperate need” enabled one of our engineer to invent a solution.
