Ordering a Mini

I want a Cooper S Hardtop 4 door with a manual transmission. There doesn’t appear to be very few manual transmissions available on dealer lots. I want to order one. Do dealers negotiate on ordered cars or do you have to pay MSRP? What is the process?

You absolutely can negotiate

It's probably easier, the dealership doesn't have to put up their own capital before looking for a buyer so you are basically guaranteeing them a free sale

They will probably use all sorts of BS like manuals are rare in the US but at the end of the day unless it's a limited supercar they can order it in at their dealer price just as easily as any other spec

So any suggestions before I talk to the dealer? I really want a manual transmission but when I spoke to the salesman he acted like it was a very rare thing. Would I get a better deal on a dealer car?
