Just want to say to anyone considering International MINI in Milwaukee, they are awesome! Talk to Kyle, Adam or Anthony. They have all been there since MINI came to the US, so they are informed and dedicated! Awesome guys!
I just order my new car with IA. I talked with Anthony (British MINI guy), I think he is wonderful, has lots of info about the MINI, and I feel very confortable when I place my order with them. Since lots of sales person don't know what they are doing, and don't know such and such options....
I'm ordering a Mini S from International as soon as I have an idea when my house will be finished (probably be ordering in the spring or summer--hopefully sooner, if I can decide on a friggin' color!). I spent a couple of hours there, asking questions and driving the Mini and Mini S this summer, and stopped in more recently (I'm an hour and a half away, but was passing through Milwaukee) to check out the new colors. I'd strongly recommend Anthony--he knows his stuff, and more importantly, he's honest--if he doesn't know the answer, he won't b.s. you; he'll look it up or do the best he can to find out--and if the answer isn't there yet, he'll tell you. He's about as low pressure of a salesman as you'd ever meet--helpful without being pushy.
A couple of other plusses for International is they don't mark over MSRP, and you can get some fairly nice customization done--like color coded wheel arches, etc.
Can't speak for the service department though (although I'm hoping it's as good as the sales department) as I don't have any experience with it.
