My brother has just ordered a Mini One. He has had £4k of options fitted to the car 16 inch 5 star alloys, aero kit, clear lenses to all indicators, 6 CD, leather sports seats, traction control, salt pack, chrome exhaust and wing mirrors, heated mirrors and jets, all in solid black.
For £100 you also get free servicing and warranty for 5 years. I must say I was well impressed by the service of Synters in Solihull and also the cars are lovely to drive especially compared to my brothers current Clio.
He had to go for the mini one as he has had three crashes in the last two years and two months of driving and is 24 so the Copper was £450 more a year to insure then the mini one.
The real nightmare was though that his girlfriend is Renaults HR manager for the south of England and could of got him 30% of a new Clio 172 sport. Unfortunatly the insurance was over £2k a year. I think he likes the minis better to.
