hmmmm with the current climate after buying a pre-owned mini cooper cabio, I was thinking of buying another but the discounts are to small. I guess working in new and pre-owned high end sales both in canada and the UK, I know there is money to play with in new and used cars at the price they take in trades and making around £2000 -£2500 profit on each one. I am sure if you word it right and haggle you should get a great deal as manu and dealers are hurting right now. Oh and the manu offers has nothing to do with the dealer profit you were thinking.
The profit is based on pre-owned not new
Haggle Haggle Haggle till the sales person brakes under the pressure he or she has a target to meet.
I bet the dealers on here hate me now its only business and nothing personnal.
Guess that is why they call me Cheeky
The one and only Cheeky Mini

Reason: missed a word out
IIf you think a MINI dealer makes or even has £2,000 or more in a used car then you are living in another planet!! a bmw then maye but a MINI, i bet most used MINI's on dealers forecourts only have about £700 in them if that.
Hi Magic Carl why dont you post the spec/ price it was and the price you paid, some dealers will bump the original price up on the used car you bought, so we can see what good a deal you got, where as some dealers price them more competitvely to start with,
We've a R57 Cooper S on order for end March/Begin April. Discounts HaHa ----- it's a new model etc etc. But being as this will be the 3rd new Mini we've bought, the dealer has agreed to 'deal' on some of the 'dealer fit' extras. Not too generous though! I managed to get 10% (£2650) off the spec'd price on a new A3 bought for one of my employees! Suppose though this will protect the residuals long term? Here's hoping!
