I wouldn't pay more than £9k + what you think is fair for options even from a MINI dealer. Chili pack is highly recommended, but I wouldn't pay more than £300-£500 for the premium of having it. Make sure it has TLC which is free servicing up to 50,000 miles/5 years.

By comparison, I was offered £12k for my A1 condition 57-reg R56 MCS with 25,000 miles and chili at trade-in prices (not being sold!), so I don't see why previous R53 models should be fetching so much given they are more expensive to run.

Good luck! - there are plenty around so don't be sold on the first car you see. :D
