Here is the reason you should NOT buy that Countryman ALL 4 SD.

An 8 month old ALL4 SD 5000 mile and yours for 18.5K. This means that this car is probably worth max 17K as a trade in. OK, it doesnt have many options, but we all know options add nothing to the value of your car come trade in. So, if you bought the ex demo 26K Countryman, even for a 'bargain' 24K, you would still lose an instantaneous 7K on a used car.

Do I sound bitter and twisted? Minis are overpriced and this thread bears testament to that. They are great cars but.......
