looking to purchase cooper s

Hi everyone, I am looking yo purchase a cooper S (190) in the next month or so, any advise would be great, what to look out for and where is best to look.

I have been looking around on autotrader for a while and there are loads of them, just want to make sure I can get the best car for the budget I have which is around 5K

any pointers would be great

thanks in advance

I just bought two 2013 Mini Cooper S Hatchbacks from a Mini dealer. Certified pre-owned is the way to go if you're not buying new. You won't get that from Auto Trader. They usually come with the balance of the manufacturer warranty, plus another year for the certified pre-owned part.

I pretty pleased with the treatment from the dealership, and love the cars...

There is nothing wrong with auto trader as you can get an AA check very cheaply on any car. Also you can bargain a much better deal than with a main dealer who usually only offer a months warranty anyway as most car manufacturers only give a years warranty anyway.

Just my thoughts!
