You are in the MINI Countryman
What is this discussion about?

Does the MINI only come with run flat tires? It looks that way from the website. Having dealt with the PAX run flat tires on a Honda Odyssey for years I am not amused.

Yes, only RFT's are available, but they are not the PAX style RFT's, but of the SST (self-supporting type, ie. stiff sidewall) variety.
#13 of 20 Leasing 2012 Countryman
Aug 07, 2011 (9:14 pm)
I put a deposit of 1k on a 2012 Country yesterday. After reading some posts, it seems that I may have made some mistakes. I was told that I could not negotiate the price on these new 2012 models. I opted for the base model with some upgrades that totaled around 29k.
With 3k down, the dealer estimates my monthly payment at $415.
does this sound right? I have sinced asked for the money factor and residual value. He did mention a residual value at around 60%, but didn't give an exact percentage.
Since I have already left a deposit, does this screw me?
thx for any help!

Unless the dealer ran your credit, there's no way of knowing what your payment will be.
I don't know about the ability to negotiate, but you typically can. However, Minis are selling at sticker if not higher due to demand and such.
Did the dealer happen to tell you when the 2012 Countryman would be released?

The dealer told me I should have my mini in 10 weeks time...so I'm guessing they are putting in orders for 2012 mini countrymans.
Not sure when I will go in to negotiate terms,
Right now they are saying the MF is .00190 and 62% respectively for
12k and 36 months.
Which comes out at $410/mo, just seems like a little much
for a lease, thoughts?
#16 of 20 Loose silver strip around back window
Aug 31, 2011 (6:02 am)
I got my first Mini, a 2011 Countryman, about two months ago and am not very happy because after having the car for about two weeks, I noticed the the silver strip around the back window was loose. Not what you would expect from a new car and especially not from a BMW product. Has anyone else had this issue? If so, has anyone had this issue resolved by the dealer. I was told that they are awaiting parts.
