You skip past the red ones and go for a decent colour. Also, go for the Cooper 'S'. They are supercharged and give such a better drive.

Make sure the car has a full maintenance record and is in good condition. Get a Carfax or vehicle history report or HPI done on the car. If it's been damaged, leave it alone.

Shop around and get the best price. Try searching on for a used car that is from a Mini dealer. If you have no experience in buying a used car, take a friend along who knows about cars.

Good luck, you are about to buy the best affordable drivers car in the world.

AnswerYou can make use of cars classifieds found on newspapers or in the internet to locate all the available used Mini Coopers in your target area. Compare used car values and cars pricing to determine which unit will give you the best deal. Work out a negotiation with the owner but of course always ask for the cars history. This way, you can get the car that you like and the deal that is best for your budget.

Generally they hold their value very well so getting a used one will only save one or two thousand.

getting a super charged version is great because of the response, performance...ect

but you also have to look at the long run. very expensive to repair.

forgot where they get their engine from but their very reliable.
