What to do ?

Was speccing up a Mini Cooper D last night on the Mini website, and the total came to about 18K. Which sent alarm bells ring.so expensive..out of curiosity I specced a Cooper S with the same spec, and it was only a 1K difference. Why is the D so expensive ? It seem like the chilli packs are different for the 2 cars, with the S xenon lights are included, as are the 17inch wheels, whilst the D chilli pack does not included these items. Might as well go for the S for that price.

...lower tax, more miles per tank....go for a 'D'...probably cheaper in the long run!

If fuel economy isn't a great concern then i'd go for the MCS. Also bear in mind the extra insurance costs

Whichever you go for, you'll love it

Worth considering consumption, road tax, and insurance when looking at cost of ownership etc.

Not to mention depreciation, which is a bigger item than the running costs.

I did the same as you, spec up a cooper D and MCS I also found the difference was 1,000,
The of spending over 18k on an oil burner made me feel bad, so ordered an S , don't regret it still makes me !
