Soon you'll get calls from about 4 dealers and they'll know you're shopping around. Agree to a $ figure above cost and then buy it off the lot or order from Mini and custom build it. So many options with Mini's...very hard to find one in stock with what you want......
Great advice. MINI doesn't markup their cars like other manufacturers, at least this has been my experience, we are on our second MINI and we love everything about it. Just a word of advice, stay away from the auto transmission. They are junk IMHO. Good luck.
