Deffo Salt Pack at minimum. A/c or sunroof is a must.

Apart from that if theres something that your car hasnt got, it can soon be added

Agreed with all that's written so far, plus alloy wheels (does a Mini One Salt still come with steel ones by default?) and the option I regret not getting is the multi-function steering wheel.

Are you trying to choose options on a brand new MINI or deciding which options you'd prefer to find on a used one? If the latter (or you're looking at a convertible, which is still first generation), bear in mind that first generation and second generation options are different.

Are you looking for the options that help the car retain the most value, or the ones that people generally think are 'essential'?

If it's the former then PEPPER Pack and Air Conditioning are pretty much the only things that make any difference. If it's the latter, you'll get about a million* different responses as everyone has different views/priorities.

If I was buying a 1st Gen One I'd go for:

PEPPER Pack
Air Conditioning
16" Alloy Wheels
Front Sports Seats
Body-Coloured Door Mirrors
MFSW

* Only an estimate. Actual number of responses may vary.
