What do you think to this car please?

MINI Convertible 1.6 Cooper 2dr

Hi guys,
I am going to look at this car next week, as it is exactly the car I want, and I was wondering, do you think I should haggle? What faults should I look for?
Many thanks.

Hi look at tyres make sure its a good brand&that they all match not cheap budgets this means they spend money. Also check next service&MPG then dipstick&fluids then test drive talk about extras car might have? Full service history MOTs bills. A MINI TLC pack is a bonus this is bought new with car. I also recommend Esure for insurance hope this helps happy shopping

As above is a good start, check for any signs of damage or paint aswell, including in boot under bonnet etc. Good tyres is a point if you like the alloys, I don't and they would be first thing to go

thank you for the responses guys, very much appreciated. Do you think i should be worried about the relatively low mileage?

It's 5k per year, shouldn't be an issue

Check the sat nav works properly. Also check the condition of the exhaust and suspension as they could need work (all consumables, but will cost you). The roof and window operation is important too.

The car doesn't have heated seats, cruise control or stere controls on the steering wheel. I'd haggle the price as the wheels are non orginal.

You need to push for a good warranty on it thats the main thing then if its got a problem after you take it away they are going to fix it for you for no extra cost, thats the most important thing.,
