Explained: What does “Full Service History” mean?

If you’ve ever bought a used car, you’ve probably heard the term 'full service history' (FSH). But what does it actually mean? And is it worth paying extra for?
 

MINI has announced a number of minor model-year updates to its lineup, with enhancements being made to design, functionality and infotainment.

In a first for the brand, MINI Countryman and Clubman customers with Media Pack XL or Tech Pack will now have Apple CarPlay for wireless connection to compatible iPhone apps. The apps will be displayed on the MINI’s 8.8-inch central display and controlled by the MINI Touch Controller or touchscreen.

Operation of driving modes has been tweaked for all models. Changing from the standard setting to sport or economy modes will now be done through a toggle underneath the air conditioning.

There will also be modifications to the cockpit instrumentation to improve clarity. At night time, numbers and letters will appear in white rather than orange. This colour scheme will also apply to the head-up display. A new display on the right-hand side of the cockpit instrument will make it easier to read fuel level details.

   

An alertness assistant will be introduced on the three-door hatch, five-door hatch and convertible models. The system analyses how the car is being driven and if the statistics suggest that the driver is losing concentration, encourages them to take a break via a graphic on the central display screen.

All changes will come into effect from July.
