I found a real nice Mini Cooper s with the jc works installed 207 hp 2600lbs. Aslo it has a lsd and r90 wheels, it very nice. I have tested the new gti the new civic si and this cooper. By far it is thee most fun to drive car. I was just wondering about trade in value? If any one else tried to trade in their car? I looked on Nada and they valued it at $13k hoping to get 12 (my car is an 04 svt 38000 every option). Any thoughts or input would be appreciated. Also if anybody interest in buying my car pm me.

I can't shed any light on this for you, but I'm interested, too.

Expect a bit less on the trade-in but it all depends who you take it too... is this a used john cooper mini? I've seen new ones going close to 28k [screwy]

he's talking about his svt focus...
all i can say is don't trade it in. sell it to someone that will take care of it by selling it to a private owner. besides you don't ususally get shit from a dealer. only shit you get is the car you will be getting in return [:D] you'll make more of you sell it privately.
too bad you never added yourself to the 04 svt owner list.
link is in my signiture.

If you have the time and flexibility, I'd try private partying it, personally. Selling it for under book privately will still be more than a dealership is likely to give you for it. I doubt the SVT ever sold well in new england, they had a lot of trouble moving the one I ended up buying, and they probably took a loss on it to keep it from going to auction. It'd be worth finding out, but after that I'd post it here and maybe your local cragislist and see what comes up.

KBB trade-in value is $9475 in excellent condition so I wouldn't expect anymore than that. I'd imagine you're not going to get much, if any, off of the Mini, so I doubt the dealer is going to inflate you trade-in unless you want to pay more for the Mini.

I looked into trading my 03 (35k miles) for a 06 Miata. The most they would offer me was 8k.[:(]
