After reading various posts and seeing that a lot of people have been given a clio or a Corsa or someting similar as a courtesy car, I was wondering if this the norm. When my car went in for a few fixes I asked for another mini to drive about in but the dealer said they where having enough trouble getting demonstrators let alone courtesy cars. They gave me a new BMW 525 to drive around in for a few days, which was nice.

Stephen, The norm seems to be that MINI customer services can sanction the indefinate use of a car from Enterprise Car Rental, with whom BMW have an agreement. What you normally end up with via this route is what they class as a 'supermini' (i.e. top spec Corsa/Clio etc). If your dealer manages to arrange a MINI loan car, or anything else, then they're doing that off their own bat.

This sounds stupid but, if you have a problem with your car and it's driveable, DONT call MINI services as you will end up with a dog of a hire car. Take it to your dealers and get a new BMW like me! ;)
Shouldn't be the case .... but it is! :confused:

I know Red Cooper got a new 3 series while his car was being fixed under the warranty :)
