Second hand Mini
The mini is one of Britain's most famous cars, made especially famous by the movie The Italian Job. There is a whole community of mini drivers out there many will beep and wave at each other just because of the car they drive.
Minis are another one of those cars that hold their value quite well but you can still pick up a second hand mini for a song if you look in the right places.
The only way to get one of the old style minis like the Mini Cooper is to buy it second hand.
Like with many goods a second hand Mini can probably be found on ebay and better still you can register free.
Mini Buying Tips
- If the Mini has air bags fitted, find out if these have been serviced to ensure they are still operational.
- Ensure the Mini is supplied with the wheel nut key.
