MINI-E Lease Extension Details Forthcoming
There is a popular thought by many of the participants that somewhere in the $425 to $450/month range would be reasonable and I concur. The MINI-E Facebook page has an open discussion about it going on right now. There are a lot of really good people that have been driving these cars for eight months now and have done all that BMW has asked them to do. They love the cars and really want to keep them. I do hope we are rewarded for doing our part in helping to gather the information BMW was seeking in this experiment and the cost for the second year is reasonable. Most of the people I know in the program want to keep the cars as long as the cost isn't prohibitive.
We'll all know soon. Below is an excerpt of the email we received:
"The first email to keep an eye out for will come from campaigns@insiders.MINIUSA.com by no later than early March. We will announce details about the opportunity to re-lease the MINI E for a second year, from this email address. As previously mentioned, this offer will be extended to a number of Pioneers, but only to those who are able to respond because the announcement is not stuck in a junk mail folder – well that’s not actually part of the criteria, we just want to be sure you receive the email and have the chance to respond quickly."
