Ezl 799 (a)
I have a 54 ZS 120+ with a CVT box (recon) and I sourced my gearbox oil from BMW Mini in Kentish Town, NW London after many failed attempts and a few blank faces from various mechanics, £17 for a litre and half and Mini grumbled about giving me a decent plastic bottle to take it home in!
Here is their number, 0207 485 6011, try giving them a call and they may be able to give you the number for a Mini parts shop nearer to where you live.
My girl just had her service and low and behold my reverse switch has been leaking and they topped my box up with a litre of black blooming oil !!! My hubby and I felt sick when we heard the manager say that and when we explained it all he tried saying his mechanic used the right stuff brought it all up on the garage computer and my hubby clearly pointed out that the screen said manual and mine is a AUTO!!!!!
So now I have instructed them to drain the lot and replace with the proper stuff, they tried saying unipart CVT fluid would be ok becuase that is what the garage PC says but I was having none of it and gave them all the codes and said when it arrives to call me and hubby will go to the garage and check if its the right gear because I have a recon box not even a year old and I dont want to invalidate the warranty.
Good luck Driftingin!!
