That figure can vary by a substantial amount. Do you want a Cooper or Cooper S. Hardtop or Convertible? Manual Transmission or automatic?
You can go to www.miniusa.com and build what you want and see the sticker price. Add your state's sales tax, then tack on about another $1000-1200 in fees that have really important sounding names (documentation fee, preparation fee, etc).
I ordered a well equipped Cooper S hardtop. Here is the breakdown:
Sticker Price $27,050
Sticker Price with factory's delivery charge $27,600
What I must write a check for: $30,768.72
What I must write a check for if I get the John Cooper Works Pkg added: $37,018.72
My car has all 4 packages, Park Dist Control, leather, limited slip, chrome interior and exterior, rear fog lamp, Harman-Kardon stereo, rally lamps, rubber and carpeted floor mats, boot mat, boot net, Euro Parcel Shelf and Union Jack valve stem caps.
John Cooper Works runs about $6250, other dealer accessories that require installation run about twice the catalog price (labor is about $100/hr varies by location and dealer greed), and accessories that just toss in like floor mats, boot mats, etc are catalog price.
These are amazing little cars, but shop for a dealer carefully. There are some that charge very high surcharges on the west coast.
Once you decide what you want on your car, make the dealer give you the "out the door" price. All other prices are meaningless. When he presents you with a price, just ask if he'd swap the keys for a check in that amount. If not, send him/her back to the calculator.
I'm sorry if I sound harsh, but I had a dealer (actually a nice enough guy) who gave me a price about $1,300 lower than other dealerships. I drove nearly 3 hours to get there and as we were ordering, I noticed the LSD and both chrome packages were missing from his quote. Once that was fixed, my "miracle price" wasn't so miraculous anymore.
That is a tough one to answer since there are about 4,000 things you can have on your MINI! I always tell people that a MINI will run you about $18,000 (MINI Cooper Base with tax/title/license) up to $35,000 (MCSC with JCW and many options).
It really depends! But play around on the MINIUSA website and equip a MINI the way you want!
