Mini Countryman SD ALL4

Hi,

New member here. Years ago, I had a Mini Clubman. I think it was a T reg. with a 1000cc engine. It was the first car I bought jointly with my girlfriend.

Well, my girlfriend is now my wife, and all I have to do is convince her that I 'need' a 2014 Mini Countryman SD ALL4 Auto.

I'm going for Absolute Black with matching black wheels, auto A/C, auto lights/wipers, tow bar, power fold mirrors and maybe runflat tyres. Plus of course, the TLC package.

These are pushing the limits of my budget, so any thoughts on my choices?

Thanks.

Paul

Welcome to Mini2, quite a few of us started out in classic Mini's years ago!

Your Countryman look and spec seems a good choice to me!

Doh!

Only just now realise that cruise control is a chargable option. Trying to get the dealer to add it, even though I already placed my order yesterday.

It seems odd to me that this option is 'hidden' on the list, described only as 'multifunction steering wheel'.
