in the auto world, if you have the cash, everthing can be "bickered", you might want to say something like "I like the car, but if it had the ext warranty included, I would buy it" As seeing these cars are in demand, there is not a whole lot of room for bickering, But cash talks


Casper is right, not much room in MSRP, but the extended warranties are a real cash cow for dealers. I have had several offer me them at, say, $1700, then when I turn them down (they are quite worthless in many cases, especially if you maintain your own vehicle), they come back with, "Well, was price the problem? Would you buy it if it were cheaper?" And try to lower the price.


In just about all markets, pricing for the MINI is the sticker price... That's just how it is. But don't feel bad -- everyone pays that price, so it's not like you're getting a "bad deal" or something.
