What used Mini Roadster sports will I get for my budget?
From an independent dealer, just over £6000 will buy you one of the early 2012 or 2013 models. Slightly less than this will get you a high-mileage example and slightly more will get you one with an average mileage for the year.
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.
