Road Tax is based upon the CO2 emissions of the vehicle and is split into 13 bands from A to M. The higher the letter the greater the cost of tax paid to drive the vehicle on public roads. In addition to the road tax detailed below, any vehicle that had a manufacturers retail price in excess of £40,000 when first sold, attracts a road tax supplement of an additional £310 per year. This is charged until the vehicle is 6 years old.
"This Mini really stands out from the crowd with it being finished in Chilli Red with the Black stripping and Roof and Door Mirror caps and the Black 16" Alloy Wheels, all of which cost the original owner paid over £600 to have fitted. With this also being the Cooper S the driving performance is superb from the 1.6 Turbocharged Petrol engine, whilst still delivering reasonable economy aspects. This car has a great service history showing it's been looked after mechanically as well as cosmetically. Call us now to arrange a Test Drive."

Ten Second Review
Smoother, faster, more powerful and easier to use, the MINI Cooper S will be viewed by most as a significant improvement. Enthusiasts may mourn the passing of its charismatic predecessor but even MINI can't resist the march of progress. The Cooper S is a top performance hatchback with that unique MINI personality running through it.
It's taken a long time for competitors to produce cars to rival the second generation new MINI. Even now that a few exist, brand owners BMW are doing their best to continue to distance their design icon from the crowd, most notably with a range of engine tweaks in recent times that have particularly benefitted the variant we look at here - the fiery turbocharged Cooper S.
The idea here, says MINI, is to produce more 'poke' with less 'smoke'. So this variant is equipped for the first time with a twin-scroll turbocharger, direct petrol injection and fully variable valve control. The variable valve control is based on BMW's familiar VALVETRONIC system that adjusts valve lift and opening times in direct relationship to the driver's command on the throttle pedal. The result is the most efficient hot hatch in its class: the 1.6 litre unit produces 9bhp more peak power at 184bhp, while peak torque is 240 Nm, delivered from as low as 1,600 rpm through to 5,000 rpm. This flexibility is enhanced by an Overboost function that delivers 260 Nm for short periods when it is most needed, for example when overtaking. The Cooper S Hatch sprints from 0 to 62 mph in exactly 7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 142mph. If that's not enough, there's a John Cooper Works (JCW) version of this car with 210bhp. It's all a very different experience to the supercharged power served up by the first generation Cooper S model. It's worth reiterating that a turbocharged engine and a supercharged engine deliver their performance in quite different ways. What was particularly exhilarating about the old car was the low-end grunt from the always-on supercharger. The turbo power delivery is less dramatic down low but in the midrange and upper reaches of the rev band, it provides even more brutal shove.
Design and Build
A central reason for the more grown-up feel of the Cooper S is the Electromechanical power-assisted steering (EPAS) which debuts on this version of the MINI. It aims to reduce parking effort (a factor which turned off a proportion of mainly female potential customers) but still retain pinpoint accuracy at speed. Although keen drivers will at first lament the loss of the old system, the latest setup at least features a Sport setting that increases the steering's heft. It gives the throttle a more aggressive map too. Also fitted as standard on Cooper S versions specified with the 16-inch alloy wheels are run-flat tyres. These tyres have a range of at least 90 miles in the event of a puncture and also mean that valuable space in the car isn't taken up with packaging a spare wheel. If you haven't yet tried a second generation BMW MINI, you'll find a vehicle of much greater quality here. Gone are those indicators that felt like you were snapping a biro every time you used them. The centrally mounted speedometer now houses entertainment and, if specified, navigation functions. The slimmed-down centre console offers more space in the footwells, while the key has been replaced by a round signal sensor that slots next to the steering wheel. A start/stop button is also fitted as standard. The Clubman estate version is 24cm longer overall thanks to the extended rear overhang and that has helped BMW squeeze in 8cm of extra rear legroom while upping the boot capacity from a paltry 160 litres to a respectable 260. There's also a pretty Convertible option.
Market and Model
Pricing remains competitive, with the Cooper S giving the Renault Clio 200 something to think about. The package includes choice extras like stability control, remote central locking, the easy entry function, sports seats, a CD stereo and all kinds of styling features that lift the Cooper S above lesser MINI models. You don't get air-conditioning as standard though, a major omission in the range-topping derivative. Communicating that this is indeed a very different Cooper S could well be quite the challenge for dealers. After all, it takes a keen eye to spot the bodywork differences over the humbler 122bhp Cooper variant whether you opt for three-door hatch, five-door Clubman estate or Convertible variants. The good news for British industry is that the car will continue to be built at what is now known as Plant Oxford (Cowley to us old timers), this factory's output being upped to 240,000 cars per year, more than double what it was when the first MINIs rolled off its lines in 2001. The body panels and sub assemblies hail from Plant Swindon and the BMW-designed engines roll out of the Hams Hall plant in the Midlands. Despite the German bankrolling, this MINI wears its Union Flags with pride.
Cost of Ownership
What about running costs? Well, anybody who owned one of the old supercharged first generation Cooper S models would laugh aloud at its claimed 33.6mpg consumption figure, since driving the vehicle as it begged to be driven would often send average fuel figures dipping below 20mpg. This latest version of the 1.6-litre turbo engine is a lot easier on the juice, with a combined figure of nearly 48mpg (3.1mpg lower than before), although this too will dip significantly if you're getting a bit enthusiastic. The old engine wasn't exactly a unit that would win any green awards either, churning out 202g/km of carbon dioxide. The turbo engine does far better, now improved to 136g/km (13g/km lower than before), putting it on the shortlists of company car buyers who wouldn't countenance the wallop in the wallet the old car delivered when the taxman came to call. A big part of the credit for the strong environmental credentials of the Cooper S must go to its brake energy regeneration system, which recoups energy that would have been lost during braking to charge the car's battery, and the automatic stop and start function, that turns off the engine when you're stationary, reactivating it when it's time to move off. These systems and other energy saving innovations are standard on the Cooper S putting MINI firmly ahead of the pack when it comes to keeping it green.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for
private individuals. This
is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
