Seriously, that's a nice $1,150 less than anticipated!

Happy happy joy joy!

Not a bad price, really. The $19850 base was a touch higher than I expected, but then I realized that the $19850 MSRP includes the $550 destination charge. A lot of dealers (and car companies) leave out the destination charge in the advertised price, they say "Only $21500!" then add (in the fast-talker voice) "plus tax, title, and destination". Looking at it from that perspective, the true base price is $19300, which is in the neighborhood I was expecting.

Still waiting to see the 'nuts and bolts' itemized price list, i.e. how much is the funky sunroof...

With all the previous press reports (plus the miniusa website) stating that the MINI Cooper will be "under $18,000" and the Cooper S will be about $3,000 more, how is it that you were expecting such lower prices?

Are you psychic? :) (and if so, can you help me pick some lottery numbers? :D )

Not psychic, just a expecting a bit less based on dealer comments and MINI comments. Here's why; MINI hasn't really spoken of base prices in the past, they always spoke of "nicely equipped" or "well equipped" cars when giving the "Under $18K" type numbers. "Under 18K plus $3K more" is $22K. Cooper S + Premium Pack + Sport Pack + Cold Weather Pack = $22850. Almost a grand over, but close enough for government work.

Add metallic paint, leather seats, and the upgrade stereo system and you'll likely be over $24K. Add a couple more electronic goodies like the satnav system and parking distance control and you could easily be talking about a MINI that snuggles up to the $25K mark. It was my understanding that they would want to cap the top end lower than that, that a "loaded" Cooper S would come in around $23K. Don't get me wrong, I love the MINI (as well as the Mini), and I fully intend to get a Cooper S, but I also think $25K for a fully loaded MINI is a tough sell (if you are trying to sell it to someone who isn't a MINI freak like us). A person could get a Mercedes Benz C230 Kompressor for that kind of money. That's all I meant by "a touch higher than I expected"...

MINIUSA have posted full price details, so let me revise my previous "top end" guess; A fully loaded Cooper S can be yours for just $26950. Crikey, a $27K MINI. Gonna have to pass on a few options. Who needs a $1600 GPS system that will cost you the cool central speedo? No thanks.

I'll be interested to see how stratospherically optioned some of the pre-spec first deliveries are...

I agree, cant wait to see the first few pre-spec and how loaded or unloaded they will be. I figured on most of the packages and was going to pick the color when I saw the car. Now on to the bank and start the house refinance paper work.
