Thats quite true, you can find the scruffiest person can in fact have the most money because they dont normally spend it.
But why go in scruffy? only takes a sec to put something decent on, provided one has something decent that is.

Why should anyone have to dress up smart to look at a car???

Checking a car over, for me, includes getting on my hands and knees, checking underneath, checking suspension and exhaust components etc, why would anyone want to dress up for that?

I always quite deliberately DOWN-dress when shopping for cars, any dealer that makes the error of judging me on my fashion sense, or because I haven't shaved that day simply won't get my business.

So, well done to Phil Merryweather at Cooper Teeside for not judging us, we're picking up our late 2010 MCS Auto tomorrow (our 2nd Mini).

This is a 300 mile round trip for us, chose this dealer initially because they had the right car, simple as that, but Phil has been patient and courteous throughout, even offering to come into work on his day off to test drive the car with us personally.

I went to Wellsway Mini in Bath, mainly because they were the closest but another reason was for the absolutely brilliant pre-sales advice on the phone before I even entered the dealership! I have always found them to be absolutely impeccable, even if my next door neighbour disagrees and would recommend them to anyone!

Salesman was persistent but good

My sales guy at Mini Downtown Toronto is good at what he does. He somehow lured me back after my 3 year lease. Didn't even want the countryman to begin with.

Bonton - Did you less than MSRP after any MINI approved discounts (i.e. free automatic, free ALL4, etc.)?

iI was looking for something; Pre Owned
so i went on line, cars .com or something like that
typed in mini cooper and the price i was looking for
and the very first car popped up, is the one i bought from mini of Warwick RI.
went over 2 days later {about 2 hour drive} did a short test drive.
when all was said and done was in and out in about 2.5 hours
i have not had to use the service dept as of yet so i cannot say how they're service is yet.but they have the best sales staff i have ever dealt with . when i am ready to upgrade to a new cooper it will be with mini of Warwick RI and if the funding is there it will be a black on black red accent "COUPE"!!. thanks Ash,Brian and Bill you guys are the greatest

I had a choice of a dealership six miles from my home or one over a hundred miles from my home. After long consideration I chose the one six miles from my home. That plus the fact they are very unusual for a dealership. Their sales staff is on salary and not commission. Their pricing is discounted, clearly marked and not negotiable. Their appraisal of my trade in ('13 Scion FR-S) was very generous. The most pleasant, enjoyable car buying experience of my life.
