Holly smokes, just checked out the second ad and all the surroundings looked strangely familiar. The London tube station the car pulls away from is in actual fact the old central post office here in Auckland New Zealand!!

Moved on to the next ad and it has two of my cars in it!!!

Must have been around 4 years ago around a month before Christmas that a production company called asking if they could hire a mini from me. I said yes and agreed to a $750 fee for use of the car. Didn't hear back from them until a few days after new year when they called and asked if I had more than one car and could they have them tomorrow. I replied yes, no problem I can bring two. Where do you need us?

Turns out the film location was in Parnell Auckland, less that 400m from my house! So, trundled up there at the allotted time and date, dumped the cars and went home to bed as had had a big night prior. Woke at midday, strolled up the hill to see how they were getting on. Nice production man gave us an envelope with payment and keys. We asked what the shoot was for and where we could see it but no one seemed to know other that "it's for some Japanese shop"......."we think". Got home and opened the envelope to find they had given us $750 in folding for each car. Easiest $1500 I've ever learnt!

Anyhow, never knew what the ad was for and not seen it until today, so thanks. My car is the white traveller at the beginning of this clip and you just catch a flash of a red mini passing at 0:18 which I also own. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Fo5uUhJtWw

Most of these clips with the exception of the part alongside the river Thames are all filmed in NZ.

Thanks for posting the background info to the filming and glad to have helped you to eventually see the finished result featuring your Mini's! :D
