Is this an S or non S version. With that mileage have it inspected by a person who knows MINI's especially if it is a S model those have quite a few problems. Depending on where you live has a a lot to do with price on vehicles. For instance that is really high where I am at in the midwest. Personally I wouldn't pay over 10,000 for that particular vehicle.

Best Answer

It was not an S model. I got some advice from a person who buys used cars for dealerships and he told me to pay no more than 11,000 for it. I had a check in hand and I went to this specific dealership to make my purchase after speaking with the sales person who said the car was there and he was ready to deal. I drove 68 miles to get it. When I got there, he told me it had just sold. I was livid as I wanted this car. boo :(
