Hi asking for my dad.

For the Non-S Cooper, how is the maintenance like?

Fuel consumption, insurance and regular servicing cost (AD versus outside workshops) ?

If getting used, anything to look out for?

Thanks!

Bro I drive a cooper.
The maintenance of the car is really quite ok and I don't think it's that expensive.
Maintainence at the agent will be expensive. Servicing outside can be quite affordable.
Fuel consumption is good. Depends how u drive. Above 11km/l is easily achievable.

If you are talking about 2010 models onwards, both are 1.6L but the ONE is tuned for lower BHP output at 95 BHP and Cooper is tuned higher at 122 BHP. Before that, the ONE was using a 1.4L engine.

If you have to ask, then you don't need to even be thinking about a Cooper - just buy whichever one is the prettiest colour.

Yes definitely. At least 15-17K cheaper brand new back when I got my cooper in end 2010. Besides engine, other things like chrome boot lid, chrome grills, 16" rims, controls on steering come as standard on cooper but no the one.

Mini ONE

Mini ONE is definitely cheaper than Cooper of similar year make.

but how many ppl can differentiate btw a mini cooper and mini one. (exterior wise) and (interior wise) what is the diff btw new engine and old engine if your maintenance cost is fixed and you hardly can speed in sg.

Seriously, with the high COE , fixed hiring cost is quite impt. dun be fool by pml and c&c with their low low pricing now.. ha haha :P

in any case, jap is really not worth it now given that yen is so high.
