Looking for 08-10...under 50k miles. Prices are too cheap to ignore.
Mine is an 08 with 46k miles for $25k.... yes... price was too cheap to ignore.
I took my MINI in for service and had it in my mind that it was time to start looking for other cars because I HATE driving 50m-1h to the only MINI dealership around for service. I had intended to stop at a Toyota dealership to look at the FR-S, but I walked around the used BMW lot attached to the MINI dealership... saw a 328 and 335 that I liked... then the 135 caught my eye. I took it for a test drive and loved it. The steering is quick and precise, the interior is comfy, the handling is pushy, but livable, and the power is quite nice. The fact that my friends have told me to get a JB4 tuner and put it to nearly 400hp is just silly based on how it feels stock.
It's only been a few days so maybe I'm still in that "honeymoon" phase with the car, but I love it so far.
