I am in the process of hopefully getting a mini cooper D (11/61 plate)but just cant find one - help any ideas apart from looking on mini website, autotrader etc?

I'm sure BMW will find you one

I would think with an 11/61 plate MINI, the owners who havent had them long are still enjoying them and dont intend to get rid of them yet, thats why youre finding it difficult to locate a used one.
Anyone buying a new car last year then selling it this year isnt very good on their pocket money wise.
I think a MINI dealer would be the best bet actually, maybe a low mileage demo car or similar?
Or if youre not too bothered about the odd dent and scuff mark, how about an ex rental one? only driven up to 10,000 miles then got rid of?
Enquire at one of the car rental companies if they have any coming up for disposal, problem with that is they would have had 1000, maybe not so careful drivers.

I went to the Mini dealership, told the guy what I wanted and he pulled up loads of options on the website and we worked through what I wanted and what was there.
I got what I wanted (Cooper D Convertible) and more. Just on a year old and done a shade over 5k miles. Couldn't fault the service.
You could also try the car supermarkets. Tesco even do cars and they usually have a few Mini's on there and not too bad as long as you are not looking to trade in.

Thanks for all your replies and yes guess you are right about it only just being a year old, may of now found one at a dealer, just checking a few things so fingers crossed!
Thanks again for your help.
