Yes, they are quite pricey, I believe the final cost of the car was going to be around $38,000.
For the type of driving my dad does (mostly highway - he delivers papers to another town every morning 3am) he decided to NOT get a Mini and put that
many kilometers on it. He puts on about 300 a day.
Instead, he got the Jetta repaired (again, with the repairs he's had done on the Jetta, he could've bought a new car after the engine went THE FIRST
time), and bought a Honda Civic (still a nice car, but not as fast as the Chipped VW's in the family).
A mini is still in the cards for him though, he's going to reitre in a couple of years and when he does, thats when He'll buy a mini...
They are quick little cars though.
