We have a passion for the MINI brand.
Whether you love or hate driving, driving a MINI is something special. Just ask Jeremy Clarkson! He hated almost everything about the new Cooper S but couldn’t stop himself from wanting to drive it! Since MINI’s were first brought to market, they offered a different driving experience. Something compact which still felt and drove like a proper car. Don’t get us wrong, driving a first generation MINI Cooper S (R53) can sometimes feel like driving a roller-skate but that’s all part of the joy!
When we first started out, we ended up with a boring generalised name – M1-Cars Ltd – owing to our proximity to the M1 junction. It could have been worse – ‘Honest Matt’s’, ‘Thrumpton Car Sales’ and my personal favorite ‘MINIHa-Ha’ and a few other truly dreadful names were suggested by some! In the end, we decided to say what we do, in simple terms. We sell MINIs – old, new(ish), classics, future classics – we are The MINI Company.
Our name says more about what we do than just what we sell. It’s plain and simple, a bit like our approach to selling cars. We don’t pounce on you the moment you arrive. We don’t go and see our ‘Manager’ to get you the best price and we won’t be adding you to a database where you’ll receive invites to fake and cringe-worthy ‘events’ or special offers! So if you are looking to buy a used MINI, drop us a line or give us a call. If we don’t have something that you love in stock, we also source cars to order.
