Read here if speccing visual boost radio (Saves you money!)

I recently added Visual Boost Radio option at a cost of £260 and then learned from another forum that I could have got it cheaper by opting for the enhanced bluetooth...So I ended up saving £90 and getting an armrest and enhanced bluetooth included...

I can confirm that this works on the Cooper S with Chili pack, as I have done this.

Here is the post on totalmini so that I am not stealing someone elses good work:

"we have stumbled upon an option combo that gives you more and saves you money. Not sure if this applies across the board but for Chili-Pack optioned Coopers and Cooper-S, it is cheaper to order the Enhanced Bluetooth option which comes packaged with the Visual Boost and Armrest than to order those items indivually - and you get the extra functionality of the Enhanced Bluetooth option to boot!

for a Chili pack Cooper S the difference breaks down:
Armrest £110
Visual Boost £260
total £370

enhanced bluetooth (with arm rest and visual boost) £170

this is dealer confirmed"

So there you go...apologies if this has been posted elsewhere ut I didn't see it..

Thanks,
ryan

Yes well you have to really go into it all carefully, I found if I ordered the Media pack you got the armrest all in, any other way around using other options you ended up paying extra for it and the total car cost was more for the same things.

I am not a big fan of armrests in cars they can get in the way, although I see the MINI one lifts up giving you a little cubby hole to hide your phone or other small item(s).
