I pass a Seat dealership on the way home & for the past few weeks they've had 2 used Minis on the forecourt. There's a Peugeot garage nearer home which had one for a while as well.

the question is - who is trading in Minis for Seats & Peugeots? :eek:

Dealers rarely keep trade-in they usually move them on so they are probably one the mini dealer didn't want!
It's nice for the Seat & Peugeot customers to see what they could get instead though. :D ;)

I have seen one at a Ford dealer and a Honda dealer!

I've noticed that non-mini main dealers seem to think mini ones sell for £14000 second hand. Then someone explained to me that the minis are on certain forecourts to attract people to buy other cars :p could be true.
The offending dealer was Rover.
Hello madam, you can't afford the mini but how about the fantastic city rover/ rover 25 :p :D

Seen them on the used car lots of Scion, Honda, Mercedes, Nissan, Infinity, and Audi. People are just upgrading. They sit on the used lot for such a long time becuase they have to recover the trade in cost, and that is usually near new pricing.

Seems Simple to me. ;)

Yep, a Ford dealer near me has a silver and black 04 plate Cooper for sale. It has done just 2,600 miles - MINI to Ford?

saw a few at mazda, subaru, and mitsubishi dealerships.
Can only assume they traded in for RX8's, WRX's, and EVO's.
