THERE are certain times in life when people deserve to treat themselves.
For Emmeline Wallington the moment came when she qualified as a primary school teacher and finally had a regular salary. One dream was to drive a new Mini and the team at Broad Green Wellingborough helped her turn this into a reality.
She had spent many hours browsing online looking for the best deal but decided to call in to the St John's Street dealership to just find out what they could offer. Her meeting with Ben Lee-Smith, one of the experienced sales and leasing team, turned out to be an eye-opener.
Emmeline explained: "I do have an interest in cars and thought I had found a really good deal online for a Mini. What I didn't realise was this deal was for a pre-used vehicle and I really wanted one to be as fresh out of the factory as possible."
Ben was able to go through all the options and just weeks later Emmeline took delivery of a Mini Cooper, three-door hatchback with just six miles on the clock.
"It really is my dream come true," said Emmeline, who was delighted to move over from her VW Beetle. She opted for a four-year lease with the Mini's Chili pack which includes a range of stylish updates for the 2018 model. This includes the new standard-fit LED headlights that automatically adjust their brightness depending on the road conditions and dip if an oncoming car is detected.
Standard equipment on the hatchback and convertible range includes a steering wheel with infotainment controls, plus a 6.5-inch screen with Bluetooth connectivity which based on parent company BMW's iDrive set up.
Emmeline said: "Ben was so helpful. I was worried that he would be yet another pushy salesman thinking because I was a woman, I would be an easy touch but that could not have been further from the truth.
"He took the time to listen and was able to work well within my budget and find a package that has given me real peace of mind. I had recently moved home which meant additional paperwork, so it was good to have Ben to take me through the process rather than a stranger who would not have understood what getting this car means to me."
