Quick questions from a BMW owner

I'm a very loyal BMW owner, currently driving a 2006 530xiT which is my third new one in four years. I'm thinking about replacing my wife's car with a Mini Cooper S.

Where should I start the negotiating process? I don't have any idea what kind of discount (if any) I can expect to get. I'm only looking for a range so I don't go into the process completely blind and ignorant.

Also, what kind of experiences have any of you had with the three Chicago area dealers? I live in NW Indiana and unfortunately, my BMW dealer doesn't handle Mini, so I'llhave to go to Illinois.

Thanks for any advice you can offer.

As mentioned, it is not likely that you will get any discounts, and you may in fact pay a markup. I personally paid sticker for my '06 Cooper S 2 weeks ago.

If you're still in the market, i would suggest calling Midwestern MINI in Columbus, OH, and seeing if you can find anything you like. I used to sell MINI's there...i know that they are currently selling for sticker, and i would recommend you talk to Chad Simkins. He's still a friend of mine, and if he gives you any crap i'll smack him around a little bit. good luck!
