This is the same as me really. I currently drive a Mini One and have been passed 3 months. As I am a 17 year old male with 0 no claims as cooper s isnt going to happen .
I have a very nice Pepper White w/black roof n mirrors n bonnet stripes coming due for delivery on launch day confirmed yesterday! They are just unsure whether I will be able to get my Aero kit and spoiler on straight away.
Total Cost £18,500
Not from MINI, but there are loads of much cheaper systems available aftermarket that must be (they're only switches afterall!) and I'm sure there must be threads about this somewhere (If not, start one!) where people "in the know" can advise you.
No matter what anyone says to me, I will not be convinced that £870.00 for a factory-fit Bluetooth is good value!

Yes I could get a nice S but as I drive around London I don't really need the performance
I have to sit in my MINI three hours a day for 25k miles a year so I'm having all the creature comforts and I don't care about the loss at trade in - My current Cooper was about £18k after options and mods and has more than halved in value in 2.5 years and do I have regrets? No!
Mine will be a present from my parents around this Christmas or early 2007. MC with basic spec, will cost 25.350€ here in Portugal. Add to it 508€ for the Laser Blue or Nightfire Red and, if I'm lucky, 97€ for those sexy white stripes in the front.
