Me, personally? I'd jump on it but I'm not an expert on prices. My Countryman Base has the keyless entry, chrome line interior and auto-dimming rear view mirror and bluetooth, but I chose additional options of heated leather seats, moonroof, rear back-up sensors, center arm rest/console. I think I have rain sensors, auto headlights and climate control but haven't programmed the car yet (if I do) since I just got it - straight off the boat from the UK. We paid $25,550 and it's not an "S" which definitely go for a bit more.
If you love it and you're completely comfortable with the car, I think it's a good price (in my humble opinion). Your dealer took a good amount off of MSRP (again, imo) but you can try for lower. ??

#1471 of 1491 Less than MSRP on Countryman?
May 30, 2012 (9:19 am)
Hi -- has anyone had any success in getting a Countryman ALL4 for less than full MSRP? I'm looking to lease a 2012 and was basically just given the "this is a hot car so we can't quote less than MSRP as configured". I understand the popularity of the vehicle impacts pricing but will probably push back some. Just not sure whether this is a losing proposition or whether I can expect some room for improvement. Thanks!

We recently purchased - not leased - a 2012 Countryman Base FWD and were told the same thing: Price not negotiable from the MSRP because it's such a desired car.
My husband started getting online quotes from other MINI dealerships and they were offering from $500 to $1,000 off MSRP (after adding desired options). We took those quotes to our local MINI dealership and to get our business, they discounted $1,250 off the MSRP. We basically "built" our car and had to wait for it to ship here, so it was not a car that was physically on the lot.
I'm not knowledgeable about leasing vehicles and don't know if negotiations are different. Just sharing our experience, in case it may be helpful to yours.

Enjoy your new ride. My wife has an 07 convertible and still loves it. And, floor mats do probably have more utility that key chains and stuffed animals... Good move there.
Btw, every Mini comes with 3/36 free maintenance...
#1476 of 1491 frequency of take down events?
Jun 20, 2012 (3:51 pm)
How do you find out when these take-down events are scheduled? Here in SoCal there are a number of dealers - but I can't seem to find any upcoming events. Is this a rare occurrence?
