They are doing them for around 280 with no deposit and obviously discounts are to be had on that if you ask nicely. I've just got 11% off on a 125. I looked at the options from Ford, Volvo and even Kia and nearly all worked out more expensive or within 20 of the baby beemer.
The new F20 1 series might be a good shout. I have called the BMW UK Military people to ask for quotes on a Cooper Auto in the same spec as our current one, primarily for price comparison purposes, and also for a 114i Sport 3 door (its a 1.6 litre 102 bhp engine I think) with the two comfort packs. I think i would get about 15% discount plus the cheap finance so interested in the figures.

He offered me a Mini Cooper D Countryman with Pepper pack for 1000 deposit and 199/month - that is a very good deal but I am pretty certain my wife and daughter would not approve of the Countryman's looks!
