Dear all
I've just joined the forum as i'm wanting to buy a mini cooper petrol in the very near future, in fact i nearly bought a mini one rather than cooper yesterday because it was there ready to go, but on reflection did not have the power i was after. So I want to get a new mini cooper, the new design.

I'm concerned about the depreciation and wonder about buying a second hand or demonstration model, problem is i'm fussy about the colour and specification.

Should i buy new or second hand?
Should i buy cash or use their finance deals?

thanks for any advice,

A Glassís Guide report has revealed that the cars with the best residual value in the UK are from MINI, with first year depreciation running at just 16.4 per cent.
