Hey remember when that girl asked you to go with her to San Francisco MINI to kick some tires and they were asking $38.5kĀ for a convertible that had been sitting on a lot unsold for almost a year(!) and how SF MINI had the stones to ask for $3500 in “added dealer markup” on the Monroney?

Good times.

That San Francisco MINI dealership reminds me of an Apple $tore and not in a good way.

Oh well.

    That hasn’t been the case for many, many years (the dealer markup), and the Mini convertible starts at around $28K. The Fiats are cute, though! I couldn’t drive a car with such low HP since I commute on the freeway, but I’d want one if I were only doing city driving…

    I don’t know, I think it was 2008 at the start of the Great Recession. There were a ton of options added in to get the price up…
