I got what I ordered, got it within 6 weeks, paid MSRP and the dealer was great to work with (Keeler in Albany -- Rex was the salesman).

A journalist with a major daily newspaper is looking to talk with people who recently bought the Toyota Sienna, the Mini Cooper, the Nissan 350Z, and the Hummer H2, who found ways to circumvent waiting lists and who did not pay more than the sticker price. Please respond with your daytime contact information to Mamaynaol.com as soon as possible, no later than Tuesday, August 5. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact Edmunds.com PR Director Jeannine Fallon at jfallonedmunds.com. Thanks!

Paid MSRP (first time ever Iv'e done that on a vehicle)for 03 Cooper in All Indi Blue, no options other than the paint color. I bought directly off the lot from Prestige Mini in Mahwah N.J., 50 miles from home in N.Y. but only 12 miles from work. This is my daily commuter car. 8000 miles so far since May 21st and as Mini USA says.........

Indi blue (all around).
All three options packages. Have had it 1.5 weeks so far (had 9 miles on it when I bought, 1,090 as of today).
Bought in upstate NY from Keeler for MSRP -- a first for me.
Ordered the car and waited about 6 weeks total -- another first for me -- but got everything I wanted just as I wanted it.

Ordered an 04 Cooper S w/ Premium, Cold Weather and DSC also from Prestige in Mahwah, NJ. Good people to deal with. I started at Prestige then started looking at VWs, Subarus etc. but was fedup with the pressure. So I ran back to Prestige.

I ordered my 2004 Mini July 1 and am told delivery will be early to mid September. I paid list price, no discount, but no premium either. It came to approximately $1850 including white five-spoke wheels, sunroof and red body color. Includes destination, registration & fees and taxes. From Mini of Fairfield County (Connecticut), about 60 miles from NYC. Seems like a good deal. Can't wait to
