    This was our second MINI, and is by far the most fun car I have ever driven, let alone owned! It has only been in Colorado for a year and has been garaged for most of that time. The paint is still vibrant, and the interior is immaculate-read: carpets are still clean, no rust, no mold or mildew, no snowy boots.

    It has never been in an accident and does not have any major damage. I babied this car and have loved every second of ownership. One of the best things about it is how it manages to perform beautifully even at higher altitudes. It's the perfect car for summer drives up in the mountains with power to spare. Handling is amazing. The power makes you smile. Great gas mileage means extra savings. Tinted the windows this past spring with 35% Huper Optik ceramic which noticeably reduces heat in the car, protects you, your passengers, and your interior from UV rays, and is covered by a lifetime warranty.

    I feel like our asking price is more than reasonable ..... but we're not getting any interest. Do you guys have any suggestions? We're not even getting any interest in a test drive or seeing it. :( Any ideas??

    If only you were closer! I know a certain someone who will be looking for a low mileage R56 very soon... :D

    Kinda surprised you're not getting any interest, personally. Not too long ago I heard my local dealer was accosting people bringing their Mini's in for service to try to buy & turn around and sell them. And it's Chili Red!

    Thanks, Stefanie! You also gave us some great encouragement in my other thread trying to sell our 2012 non-S black MINI.

    We never got any interest in it either, other than someone who said she hated it because it didn't have a sunroof!

    Anyway, we have these two MINIs and wish we could keep both, but we've been having some unexpected bills and really need to sell one of them.

    If you happen to know anyone in the market, please let them know!

    Thanks again for the support! Our MINI dealership lowballed us on both cars, and I have to believe there is a buyer out there who would LOVE this 2013 S and I'd so much rather sell it directly to them.
