How do I know the car I am buying is genuine?

As when buying any car, it really is a case of buyer beware.

There are many cars offered for sale, which are not true Traveller or Countryman cars even though the advert may mention the words Traveller or Countryman. 
We have seen many cars which on closer inspection turn out to be Mini vans to which have had rear windows and a back seat added or Mini Clubman Estates which have a round nosed front end fitted.  Some of these conversions are very good, and while we are not saying don't buy these cars, do be aware of exactly what it is you are buying.

Indications that an advertised Traveller/Countryman is a converted van may include:

- Air vent in the roof
- Rear windows of one piece of glass and/or with rounded corners
- Fixed front grille

- Later style interior
