Has anyone had any luck getting a change over cost for their Cooper to a Cooper S.
I have been into several dealers and they all seem to get scared when you try and ask for a value. Even questions asking for answers give or take £1000 make them run for cover. I'd really like to put my name down but can't until someone gives me a rough price.

Why bother getting a Cooper S if you already have a Cooper, they look far nicer and you can put your own supercharger in it and whoops the Ss pants off! That is, if you don't mind voiding your warranty and being adventurous!:D

I have been offered £19k for mine....paid £17k. Thats a deal...but I ain't waiting for another one! It hurts to wait!
I don't understand this reply!! You paid £17K for a Cooper? And a dealer has offered you £19K? Tell him he can have mine for £18K - I only paid £13K!

Seriously, if anyone has been offered a trade in price by a dealer on a Cooper, it would be very interesting to see the initial depreciation. My guess is the waiting lists are not so long that people will pay over-the-odds prices (the above example being an obvious exception).

Thanks Sirobo. Sounds like a very good price. Comforting for those of us worried about depreciation.

Just remember as well I haven't got my MINI yet...arrives in a few weeks and that is 19k for a brand new one with no miles!

Its not exactly my dealer, its my dads mate who has a BMW Service Garage, he has a chap who is looking for a Cooper immediately! I ofcourse said no, after waiting this long! He has now gone to Soper of Lincoln and Taylors of Boston to see if they can help!

He can have mine if he wants! Spec as below, all he has to do is beat the dealers price of £12550.
