I'm new to BMW minis and i'm looking at buying a used one. I've seen a cooper s for 5833 for an 04 with 81000 miles. Can anyone tell me whether this should be something to think about cos ive seen minis from this year with less miles on it. Any tips for what to look for when looking as well?

I just wrote a large post on this in this same forum (2003 vs 2004) Id say that 81k one is overpriced even for a garage. More like 5300-5400 garage, 5k private. If facelift.
