This car books at £ 4650 in the glasses guide so with a couple of hundred off his price is pretty much bang on to be fair.
Looks a good un, go for it!

It's amazing to think it's 9 years old! :eek:
There was a time when a 9 year old Mini would have needed collecting in several cardboard boxes and (only if it was a good example) a recovery trailer too!
The MINI that you're looking, on the other hand, at is a very tidy looking example of one on the two best models of new MINIs ever built. Good luck :D

im going to view saturday morning, hopefully it will look as good as it does in the pics :)
It has a sat nav etc. which is appealing ,only bad point is no Tax .
MOT until Jan. But I love the fact it has the sat nav built in, will this include a MPG computer etc.?
