MINI Cooper Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    Park Distance Control?

    You can reach out from the driver's seat... almost to the back bumper... ;)

    Other than the slushbox, a nicely optioned car.. not too much wasted..

    I think all-season tires are standard, unless you get the sport package.. then, they are a no-cost option.

    I'd drop the alarm and the PDC, and get Xenons...

    But, wait.... that would be my :) configuration..

    What color?

    =) I could not live without driving/parking skill is least it give me confidence, I hope. :sick:

    Yes...I am stil considering the Xenons...but why the alarm unnecessary? People in US don't normally add that? would it protect the car from stealing?

    the car is 85% possibility chili red...and lightening blue is also one of my consideration, will figure out at the test drive. :)
  • Does anyone have any experience with the Mini College Graduate program? I couldn't get any specific information regarding the discounts or incentives that program offers?

    Do you have a contact at the WI dealer you mentioned in your post a few days back? Im looking into a clubman and would be interested in where you heard about them discounting!

    I believe minis CG program is identical to those offered by BMWs. in the past they have done small discounts on rates for leases and purchases.
  • I don't think we're allowed to post salepersons name's but here their website. International Autos, Milwaukee

    The discount was available on the 2 remaining models of the Clubman S(I think it was an S but I could be wrong) and was offered because the cars were part of some kind of promotional campaign when the Clubman initially came out.

    Hey all!
    I hope this has not been posted before... but i just test drove the mini yesterday.... It was love at first sight. Im already calculating the months of how long it will take to save up for a good down payment. Which leads to the money issue. Just wondering if anybody has gotten a great deal on the traditional finance option. Half price leather upgrade, thrown in a sound system... etc. And if anyone has how did you work your jedi mind tricks on the dealer, to accomplish the feat.

    Anyone have a dealer recommendation - where to get a car at just MSRP?

    Who gives the best money factor on leasing?

  • carlover3carlover3 Posts: 29
    I live in SanJose, CA, and looking for the best possible deal on a new Mini/S-model. Did anyone purchase a Mini in the BayArea/CA (or Northern CA like between BayArea and Sacramento), and was able to get a price below MSRP or some throw-in goodies (parts, service, etc.) ? please share on how to get the most for the money we pay for a Mini, and any dealer recommendation.
    My second question: Did the price of the new Mini go up year-by-year at all and about how much it went up ?
    Thanks in advance for all the info.

    I'm also interested in buying a '08 Cooper S in the next week or so. There hasn't been a lot of discussion on price around here for a while. Anyone have any advice on what I can expect?
  • riffster90riffster90 Posts: 6
    Ok so i have been reading around and have seen some slight hints that people have gotten deals from ordering past models of a mini. I was wondering if anyone has gotten a deal of this kind, because when i can afford getting my mini is sept-oct which is when most new models come out. So has anyone gotten a deal like this, for example i getting an '08 when the '09 is coming out in a couple months.
  • waterflamewaterflame Posts: 22
    Yep, the Mini dealer(Milwaukee,Wisconsin) I spoke to a month ago said that they do offer some discounts for past models. To be more specific, they knocked $1000 off the MSRP for the previous years model.

    But here's the catch, the discount was going to be available for a January 09 :(
  • carlover3carlover3 Posts: 29
    Can anyone please confirm when the 09' Mini Cooper S will be available for sale/ordering in US ? I talked on the phone to a saleperson of Concord/CA Mini and he told me that 09' model is not available until March 2009 but I don't know how to verify if it's an hostnest statement from that saleperson.
    And if anyone knows what are the major differences between 08' and 09' models of Mini Cooper S, and will there be any changes in the price ?
    I am trying to make a decision if I should order an 08' soon or wait for the 09' model to come out.
    Thanks much in advance-
    Car Lover!

    Hmmm... and im assuming thats just on the models that they have on the lot too? Because if u were gonna order an '08 in december they prob would not give u that discount huh? What do u think? :confuse:
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 27,650
    There was no discount.. '07 models @ $1000 off in January, '09..

    IOW, "we don't discount"
