Everyday, whether it be at uni or at work im trying to think of mad schemes to raise cash for a mini that little bit quicker.
I read a story where a guy wanted a Focus cheap from a dealer, so he went on the internet and got a cheap genuine offer. He then went to his local ford dealer and showed the dealer. the dealer said that he had no choice but to match the offer.
Could i do the same, or is hard work still the only solution to getting a mini?
What's the need? Whilst there's people out there that are in the market to buy a [Ford] Focus - there's a lot of other people that are prepared to wait for something a little special - no matter what the cost.
And believe me Picky, you'll not regret waiting for your MINI. Then watch your discounted Ford Focus friends face!
I think you might have to think of another plan!! Sadly or rather gladly from a residuals point of view there is no discount and no real benefit save maybe a couple of £100 (and then losing out on the TLC) on importing a MINI.
I think the overwhelming opinion (and fact) is that you won't get a discount on a MINI from a UK dealer....best you can do which is what I did with Howarth's in Newcastle under Lyme was get my private plates made up free of charge, a full tank of petrol and an item of my choice from the MINI catalogue..this was the difference between Howarth's and Bluebell in Crewe. Admittedly all in all this is worth about £100 but still worth asking.
you can always try something i did. After my first Mini which i wrecked i place a jar on my desk at work saying "Driver suffering from Mini-Withdraw Please Donate". Doing this as a Joke im quite pls that in the 3 months ive had the jar on my desk Ive collected 243.15 worth of donations and have ordered a spring lowering kit for my New mini S which is due in late march early april
