Finding a MINI

So I’ve played with the MINI configurator and I know what I would really like:

  • chili red
  • sports and perf packages
  • union jack roof, or maybe the chequered flag (for nostalgia’s sake)
  • has to be an S

I speak to a couple of dealers and get various markups quoted. One is for $3600 over invoice but for that I do get some mats and a luxury warranty – whoo hoo! I’ve heard good things about Scottsdale MINI in Arizona. Debi replies to my email saying there is no markup but the wait time for a new S is about 9 months total time. But she adds that they have a 2002 MCS with 10K miles on the clock for sale if I am interested…. the stats are exactly what I want.
