What sort of deal did you get on it if you dont mind me asking? The dealers offers in my area vary from nothing to very little at all!

The link below contains pics!!

Williams : MINI Cooper S Hatchback 1.6 3dr Auto

Deal wise i got a nice fat subsidy from MINI UK towards the finance which knocked about £1500 off the car. Basically they agreed to pay the dealership this amount which then meant that this was knocked off my monthly repayments. I also got a very good trade in price for my MINI one so all in all very happy. I can wholeheartadly recommend Wiliams in Bolton too. I travelled from Leeds to see the car as it was the colour and spec i wanted...but it was worth the journey in the end! P.S. Its not auto like it says on the website..it is manual!!

Let me know what you think

To be honest, i got the impression that business was very quiet and that they wanted to sell the car, not least because they were due another cooper S demonstrator in within a week so this one needed to be sold. Basically, i was umming and arghing a bit about the monthly repayments and he went away and phoned MINI UK to try and get a subsidy on the finance. Anyway, he came back and said that they had agreed to pay the dealership some of the finance on my behalf, obviously to persuade me to buy the car. Anyway, this knocked my monthly payments down by quite a bit, allowing me to purchase the car over 3 years instead of 4. I think MINI may be just starting to feel the pinch a little bit from the poorly performing economy. Even the guys at the dealership said it was really quiet and it was the same story at Stratstone MINI in Doncaster the week previous.

P.S. GO FOR DARK GREY...IT LOOKS AWESOME!!

Anyway, glad you all like the car, i will post real life pics on saturday!!
