Re: Mini Cooper Cabrio for sale (Lugano) 8,900 CHF OBO

Dealers are pricing their cars at 8-10k - go above that figure and you're looking at S models.

That would indicate to me they are trading at 5-7k. Considering that a new private seller one has come on today in Zurich for 6,900 - and has navigation, I suspect I am pretty close on the trade price.

Spring is coming and so you may find that the quickest/easiest way to sell is to get a local dealer - but you're likely only to achieve 5-7k above.

You have a few options (with decreasing probability of a sale): put it on Ricardo starting at 5k and see what happens; put it on Autoscout for 7,5k; or continue to advertise on here at 8.5k.

Where in the OP does it state the engine size? Do people really have to ask for such basic info?

Thanks dodgyken for your comments. I have not spoken to local dealers but I intend to do so this week. I am OPEN to offers and I want to make it clear. The car is in a really good condition and my TomTom GPS is included in the price as well.

The car is listed on cars4you as of today --> Link: https://www.car4you.ch/mini/mini/5413035 . Richdog all details are posted there, thanks .

Mini One = 1.6 with 90ps
Mini Cooper = 1.6 with 115ps (later ones had 120ps)
Mini Cooper S = 1.6 (Turbo) with 170ps

They also did 3 diesels - but not in the convertible
Mini One = 1.6 with 90ps
Mini Cooper = 1.6 with 110ps
Mini Cooper S = 2.0 with 143ps - which quite frankly is just ruining the fun!!

Hello everyone,

The highest offer I got from the local dealers was 5,500chf. I welcome any offers higher than the dealer's offer until the end of February.

Thanks

It is almost like I know what I'm talking about!

I'm off to feel smug for a bit.

Re: Mini Cooper Cabrio for sale (Lugano) 8,900 CHF OBO

that's a good price for a late-ist R52. The HK audio makes upgrading the head unit interesting. But it's a good car

It's also worth mentioning that you have 2 lots of wheels because those steel wheels can't be standard on a Cooper......

I'd agree - if it was May, the summer wheels were on (in the photos), and the car was "posed" with the sun shining and the mountains behind.

But its not, the OP is leaving the country and it is winter.

HOWEVER as a private buy someone on here must be tempted at 6k+

Unfortunately I am selling this beauty in the winter time and so I don't have the summer tyres on! But honestly, the car is in a very very very good shape! It definitely worths 6K+.
