Mini is a British vehicle manufacturer, currently owned by BMW but originated from British Motor Corporation in 1959. The original vehicle went through many owners including Britis Leyland and Rover Group, the Marque was then sold along with Rover to BMW. BMW disposed of the loss making sectors of the Rover Group but kept the Mini name and planned to launch a new model.
The new company BMW Mini is not related to the old car whatsoever but retains the look and feel of the original Mini model. The new generation of the Mini was launched in 2001, origianlly as a Hatchback but since as a Convertible, a Clubman Estate, Countryman 5 door crossover vehicle and a Paceman a 3 door crossover.
Mini also launched a Coupe and a Roadster, with the Coupe’s roof resembling a kids baseball cap, backwards. But due to the unpopularity of this model it was withdrawn.
The majority of BMW Mini’s are manufactured at their plant in Oxford, although models such as the Countryman are manufactured in Austria.

What our customers are saying
We have been clients of Cocoon for just over 2 years.. we discovered them online at a time in our lives when historical credit problems were still stopping us from moving on with our lives.. we desperately needed to change our car, we had a good level of income, but because our credit file at the time was less than perfect, we were hitting brick walls at every corner…
After speaking to Paul ( one of the Directors) we were assured that they could help.. and boy did they…..
Within 2 weeks of our initial chat we were driving a brand spanking new Audi A3…. the monthly price (although slightly higher than mainstream lenders) was affordable to us and it literally changed things for us – someone had taken a chance on us – just what we needed……
We then went on to have 2 more cars from them.. a VW Golf and An Audi Q3 – both brand new… by keeping up the payments and being reliable clients, we managed to rebuild our credit ratings
Now after just over 2 years and 3 cars later Paul has managed to secure us mainstream finance directly with Mercedes and we have just taken delivery of a Mercedes GLC over a 3 year deal – at mainstream lender prices too….
We cannot fault Cocoon and all the staff there for their impeccable service along with their belief and trust in us…. it came at a time when almost nobody would even look at us, let alone take a chance with us…. If you are having credit problems and need a car, there is nobody that we would recommend more than Cocoon….
Paul and Donna Gardner
