#109 of 146 Convertible price?
Jul 06, 2005 (7:28 am)
I am hoping to buy a cooper (maybe S) convertible in Memphis, TN. I built one online and it will take 6-8 wks to come in, so I thought I'd try finding one really close to the one I wanted already in stock somewhere (impatient). SO...I called Roadshow Mini and the dealer voluntarily told me the price I got on the Internet was the price I'd pay, they don't do any "dealing" or whatever. I was wondering how true that actually is! Do they EVER come off of that price or not charge anything extra for installations? I just kindof thought that was a little odd for him to tell me that without me even mentioning the price.
Any input would be GREATLY appreciated. I have waited since 2002 for these things to come out, and now I can't wait to get one!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have seen numerous Mini's being towed behind or better yet tucked inside of some motorcoaches/motorhomes. I haven't seen use of any oiler connections just a tow bar, so I think you'd be safe in towing your Mini behind a coach with manual tranny in neutral.

Honestly, I have never heard of anyone getting a MINI below msrp. Many west coast dealers charge over msrp, even for a car that is ordered. Some dealers will 'throw in' an item or two like floor mats etc. Since the MINI is still in high demand, there is no incentive for discounts. Sorry.

Well minimad I guess I'm a bit lucky, I hear that some of my brothers and sisters of the Mini variety are waiting 10 months to a year for their Cooper. I couldn't imagine! I'm told that my cabrio S should arrive 2 and a half months from the time I placed my order. Wish I could say, as for waiting for the car, that the last two weeks were the worst, but I've got three left!, It should arrive just in time for San Franciscos late summer. I was also able to talk my dealer down on the price above MSRP. So instead of the $2500 dealer fee, it was only $2300.That should pay for my ipod adapter. They also threw in the factory rubber mats. Almost overwhelmed by their generosity. I'm so anxious , cant wait to get behind the wheel. Did you know that jet black is being discontinued? Better get youre orders in. See ya on the autobahn, give a wave.

I placed an order for my Cool Blue MC on Sunday 7/17. No packages with only the MF steering wheel as an extra. I paid MSRP + Tax & Tag. I was told to expect delivery by 9/30. What are the chances that I can expect it sooner?

Here is my experience from order to delivery of my 05 MCS convertible:
3/17 Dealer got 5 allocations, mine went in. "On Order"
4/12 Status changes to "Scheduled for Production"
5/2 Status changes to "In Production"
5/10 My car is born (start actual production)
5/13 Car is built and is on its way to Southampton (same day arrival at dock)
5/19 Car is loaded onto ship. Ship leaves England.
5/27 Car arrives at Port Elisabeth, NJ
5/28 Car delivered to dealer in Mahwah, NJ
5/31 I pick up at dealer (day after Thanksgiving)
This is my second MINI. My first I ordered in 2003 and that took 5 months.

I guess I'm one of the lucky owners of a MiniConvert.S that paid below MSRP through a private party via.E-Bay. 180 miles unlicensed never driven or registered. One of my better deals in my lifetime.

Anyone have any info on Prestige MINI in New Jersey? How are they as a dealership? I'm wondering if it's worth the hour drive from my house. Thanks guys.
