If you’re like us, you’re counting down the days until your favorite ski resort opens for the season. But is your MINI ready for the drive? MINIs do exceptionally well in the winter weather. But there are a few things to condition before you drive it through inches of snow.
To get your MINI Cooper ready for winter, we’ve put a list together of how to equip your MINI. We’ll see you out there!
5 Ways to get Your MINI Cooper ready for winter:
Get winter wheels.
If you’re planning on taking your MINI to the mountains all winter season long, because you should, take an extra step to equip your MINI even more to get you there with ease and in style. MINI cold weather tires start around $100 per tire and go up to about $350 per tire. Whether you want to change your tires for a new fall look or you want the best possible performance this season, the Schomp MINI crew can help you find your “sole mate.”
Accessorize your roof.
Keep your items safe by storing them in the aerodynamic, MINI-centric Roof Box that features a black or silver tray and your choice of either black or silver metallic covers. Roof rack base support sold separately.
Get it serviced.
There’s no better time than at the start of a new season to bring your MINI in to change out the fluids and make sure everything looks good under the hood. At home, you can quickly check the oil and fill up your wiper fluid, but be sure to schedule and appointment for your MINI to get tuned up and ready for a pretty fall season ahead.
Keep the interior clean.
We know you’ll be bringing in snow from your shoes, your dog’s feet, or your snow gear, so keep the floor of your MINI clean by getting MINI’s all-weather floor mats, designed with you in mind during the winter months. These are near-indestructible black rubber mats featuring vertical grids that funnel moisture to improve footing – ideal for motoring in mud or snow.
Protect your rear.
Keep the rear of your MINI clean and scrape-free with the Protective Boot Space Cover, which is removable and easy to install. Whether you’re putting a pet back there, ski boots, snow tubes or luggage, the cover will keep your car clean and ready for its next trip.
