Placed order on new Mini

Well, I went ahead and placed an order,,, got a pretty decent deal???? Who really knows anymore... I wll say this,, They did work for my business, meaning when I place my order 11 years ago this month on my 2007 - Straight MRSP and I had to beg for floor mats, LOL>. I ordered a 2019 Red Cooper (Non S) with the Signature package.. The only option I really got besides the Signature package was the upgraded Signature Upolstery package. ( I did get the Moon Roof DELETE ) I wanted to pay cash but they had a finace rebate??? So, I paid all cash except $7500 - Min to finance to get rebate and I can pay that off in 6 months.. finance charge at 6 months will be very little ... OTD pricing (Calif tax code of 7.85%) came to $25,800. I am ok with that,,, funny thing, That $2K more than my OTD price on my 2007, 11 years ago..

At this point, my ony thinking left is = Do I order the parts to have a spare??? actually not all that bad - about $280 = would need to buy the actual Tire, not sure what to buy,, but thats the cost for the parts incuding the steel spare wheel. Anyone here actually added a spare?? I also asked this tire question in the wheel area.. just thought I would add it here on my new order post...

Was impressed with the Mini overall improvement over the last 11 years... Ya, Mini has put on a little weight but I am to over the past 11 years.. I have maybe gotten a little wider but NOT taller, LOL..

Congrats on your F56.. Here's a good place to start for a spare http://www.waymotorworks.com/mini-sp...l-f55-f56.html
I believe the spare on the F56 base can be mounted under the car due to the difference in the rear muffler placement from the S. You may need to buy additional hardware for mounting.

Congrats! A red MINI is about as fun as they come! Not sure if it matters to you, but anytime I have financed through MINI or BMW to take advantage of the finance rebate, I've paid it off right away with no penalty. I bet you will notice there is no language in your finance paperwork that says you can't pay it off right away.

I was told 6 months??? However, once I have the Mini, I will be trying to pay it off ASAP if not the first week, I will read the small print...

The 6 month payoff date is so that the dealership and employees get the commission on the transaction.
