United-Kingdom Help in selling my mini

Hi everyone,
I need help as I'm confused about how much to sell my mini for.

I have TOP top spec black Mini Cooper S Cabriolet JCW. 2005 plate with only 33,672 miles on the clock. As this is a rare car I don't want to under sell it but no one can give me a guideline of what to sell it for. I have been back to a mini garage and they seem very cagey about giving me a price. All they say is that it is the top spec you can get in a mini!!!!!

HELP HELP HELP.

I paid 6000 for my 06 plate black cooper s R52 fully loaded except JCW upgrade (though it has a 17% pulley and sports exhaust) with 78k miles.

I guess its worth what someone will pay and how long you can wait to find them.

Top spec can mean different things to different people.

As previously said the car is only what someone else is prepared to pay for it.
What Inhibits it’s value escalating car tax now 285 for a small performance hatchback
Coopers do better in price retention than “S” models or JCWs.
Optional extras don’t add value they just move quicker off the car lot
Engine performance extras like Pulleys, ram filters that take the car of standard spec
Depress the price further, and attract a higher insurance premium.

My valuation 4000-4200

Good Luck with the sale

A couple of months ago I paid 3500 for my mini one seven 2006 with 56k miles on the clock. I looked and waited for quite a few weeks and found this one which I think was quite a bargain compare to other mini's in the market within 30 miles from London. I think the price is generally lower outside the London and lower from private sellers than car dealers. When I was looking around, the price of S wasn't too much higher than one. I decided to go for a one and sadly gave up an S with some extras of similar age and mileage with not much price difference, only because insurance is much higher on S. Top spec means different things to different people. I'm sure someone would be happy to pay a good price for your spec, if you can wait long enough for that person to turn up.

See how much MINI would give you for it and then add a good 3 grand onto that price, because thats all they do when they get a good one in, wash it add 3000 and an easy profit.

When you put up the advert, take as many pictures as you can with a good camera, describe the spec in details, and write something about yourself, reason for selling, etc. People like me would rather pay more to buy from a trustworthy private seller than buying from a car dealer.
