What used Mini Coupe coupe will I get for my budget?
At the time of writing, around £6000 will buy you one of the early models, slightly less than this for a high mileage example, and slightly more for one with an average mileage for the year, bought from an independent dealer. Up the money to between £7000 and £9000 and you’ll pick up a 2014/15 car with the same criteria. You’ll need to spend between £10,000 and £12,000 to secure a sparkling 2015 car, from an independent or franchised dealer.
