Help needed! What is the right price for a 2nd hand MCS?
I've been looking to buy a Cooper S for a few weeks now, and am finding it difficult trying to gauge what is an appropriate price for each car as the differing options seem to really alter the value of the car.
As a minimum I want it to have Dark Silver bodywork with black roof, chilli pack, black interior, panaramic sunroof.
My feeling is that an 03 plate with average miles (say 25k) should be around £11-11.5k. Does this seem right?
I've now been tempted by an 03 plate with everything I want PLUS full leather heated seats, climate, Harmon Kardon radio boost/cd and West Tuning 210bhp package. They want £13k, which I'm thinking is probably fair.
I know that colour is very subjective but it does seem that the Dark Silver commands a better price 2nd hand, especially with a black roof.
One other thing, anyone got a view on how much impact the new Mini will have on prices of the current model?
I have also been looking for a cooper s for the last few weeks. Have a mini one at the minute. You seem to be looking for exactly what i am, dark silver, black roof, 17" alloys, approx 03 plate etc. I think the one youve found for 13k seems an ok price.
Although i am only basing my view on what prices i have found over the last month or so.
Good luck with the search, im hoping to get rid of my mini and have a MCS within a few weeks.
My budget started at £10 - 10.5k! Looking in Parkers guide that seemed an appropriate amount to put aside. I've gradually increased my budget as I found I wanted to include more options and prices still seem to be very strong.
