this explains why a month ago there weren't even a 2nd hand MINI for sale in Switzerland and now there are more than 20 Ones and Coopers and at prices = or > than newfoggie said:Having rejected our car two weeks ago, we went back to dealers to change to a mini loan car 2 days later and saw our car in the carpark next to the recently delivered cars with the number plates on the back seat. Looking in absolute mint condition having had a full valet. We had to re-assign our no. plate, so it was obvious that it was being sold on to some poor unsuspecting soul almost overnight.
If I was looking at buying one of these returned or rejected cars, I much rather know precise details of what was wrong from a source independent of the dealer - ideally the previous owner. That way I could make sure that the faults had been sorted and pay a reasonable price.rjwatson said:With a waiting list of a number of months for BMW MINI's then surely people buying them will enquire as to the origins of the cars.
