Well, ok this is intended to find out how much you or the initial owner who had your car spent on factory options from BMW.

This is not a thread for those who have modded their car aftermarket

Id just like to see, personally, and im sure there are others too who would like to know how much people at the point of purchasing a BMW mini are spending in general on factory options

mine are here

opt2 on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

14,640.00 Car List Price
5,715.00 BMW Options
9,021.63 JCW bits

30,713.63 Total

Thought this as im thinking of selling up and going to the dealer to see how much they'd offer to take it from me.

Its the price of two new mini cooper s's for gawd's sake!!!!

I like mini's but when the price is over 20k let alone 30k!! you should start to get your head checked

Crikey!

You can go a bit wild with the options really. Mine are as follows

Mini Cooper D: 13,980
+ Astro Black 280

+ Chili Pack 2010
Flame Spoke alloys 390
MFSW 170
Darkened glass 120
Colour line red 90
HI-Fi system 325
Chrome mirror caps 50

And that's me!! Just over 3k in extras total coming to 17,997

Would have liked a hell of a lot more but gotta watch them purse strings

I'm at about 7,700 worth of options, inflating a 16K Cooper S up to about 23,700 ish.

Thing is, I genuinely feel that all of these are worth having and worth the money. There's nothing here I've "thrown at it" just for the sake of it, if I had to lose anything I'd be hard pressed to choose as I really do want all of these things.

Some of these items are standard as this is copied from the configurator once I'd specced it up on line.

Here you go:

Astro Black
Sports Suspension
Multifunction for S/Wheel
Remote Control Alarm
Heated Mirrors/Washerjets
Roof In Body Colour
Mirror Caps In BodyColour
Panoramic Glass Sunroof
Front Centre Arm Rest
Sports Seats
Front Seat Heating
Colour Line Dark Grey
Anthracite Roof Lining
Additional Decor Rings
Interior Trim Piano Black
Sport Button
Rain Sensor & Lights On
Pass Airbag Deactivation
Car Jack
DAB Digital Radio
6 Disc CD Changer
Radio BOOST CD
HiFi Speaker System
Bluetooth phone kit with USB Audio
White Indicator Lenses
John Cooper Works Aerodynamic Bodykit
Chrome-Line Interior
Dynamic Stability Control
Limited slip differential

CHILI Pack
Lea Punch Carbon Black
Sport Leather Steer Wheel
17" Web Spoke Alloys
Floor Mats
Pass. Seat Height Adj.
Storage Compartment Pack
Front Foglights
Bi-Xenon Headlights
Automatic Air Conditioning
On-Board Computer
Interior Light Pack
2nd Remote Key

I like 'em big...

Hi,
Just going through my "Mini" file as renewing insurance/tax.

Original owner paid..

24,425, that's for an 05 BRG/Blk with basically every option except JCW stuff or Recaro's.
Came with both Cd changer and iPod as he "couldn't decide which one I'd use more"

I acquired the vehicle at just over 2 yrs old, 12k on the clock for aprox 60% of the purchase price - that's quite steep depreciation for a Mini.......I'm happy though!

It is scary how much these little cars can add up to

Selling already? What's next?

Anyway...

Invoice for my car originally was just short of 24k, got every option box ticked just no JCW bits.

It is a silly amount of money for a MINI though.
