Mini Dealer - Deals
I checked out a 2011 Mini Cooper S tonight and was a bit surprised that the dealers wanted MSRP.
2011 Mini Cooper S
Total = 27,200.00
3M Film protection (on bumper and doors)
Yadda Yadda Dealer Pkg
Total = 30,000.00
I told him I was not interested in the $3000 in options he installed on the car...I just wanted to pick up the car at a fair price (Edmunds.com is showing 25,500 for my area for that car). I was willing to go up to 26,000 but he said 28,000 was as low as he could go. This was because, from the dealer, Mini is not discounting any models except the Clubman. I expected that on the Countryman...but a 2011 Cooper S (with 2012 models on the way in a few months) and at the end of the month?????
Am I off base here or does Mini just tend not to deal? This was in Raleigh, NC.
