4 Things You Can’t Forget Before Turning in Your MINI Lease

Before you turn in your Mini Car lease, follow these 4 steps to make the process seamless and to give you the most value in return.

Download this checklist and bring it in to save $500 on any lease end charges when you get your next MINI! 

Step One: Make sure your scheduled maintenance has been completed.

Your maintenance must be up to date in order to avoid potential charges. If you have any service lights on your car, make sure those are taken care of before dropping it off. While you can leave your car dirty on the outside, we need to make sure it’s clean on the inside.

Step Two: Check on your mileage.

When you drive a fast and fun vehicle, it’s easy to lose track of how many miles we put on our car. If you have gone over your mileage allotment, you can look into mileage discounts prior to returning your lease. We can let you know what that discount can look like for you.

Step Three: Have all keys and original equipment handy.

You will need all sets of keys, boot covers, and owner’s manual. If you do not, then we will need to deduct this amount from your lease return, in order to provide the right equipment for the next driver. 

Step Four: Complete Your Lease Pre-Inspection

MINI will mail you a Ding-O-Meter; a small plastic circle to help you determine if any other damage will cost you money. Windshield cracks, dings and dents, tire tread, and interior damage are all examined. If you prefer complete peace of mind, you can bring in your MINI and we will check it out for you at no additional cost.

This isn’t goodbye.

Buy your MINI lease.

Three months before your lease is up, MINI will provide a purchase discount from your lease residual (the traditional buyout value). We will also provide you with an updated purchase price, as well as pricing for Certifying your MINI.

Custom order your next MINI.

It generally takes about 8-10 weeks to get a custom MINI built and shipped to California. There are always new colors to choose from, new interiors to feel, and new tech to check out in the latest models. If you decide to order a MINI last minute, we can help you extend your current lease until your new car arrives.

Get Your Wear & Tear Credit of $500

Get your lease inspection completed with us and receive a $500 Wear & Tear Credit toward your next MINI. We will advise potential charges and dismiss ones you may be concerned about that aren’t an issue.
