A Very Fun And Addictive Car — Really fun to drive is a head turner (proplre like to look at it coz MINIs are like that) Not much to say at this stage all i can say is it is very reliable and live up to its rep. and keeps it rep from the original. despite original min enthusiasts knocking BMW they should be proud.

Mini Cooper Cabrio — it's a MINI. 'nuff said! It handles better than anything else I've driven. It accelerates well.Very few repairs so far.It has a very unique design inside and out. I've only paid for gas and new tires since I got it. Everything else has been ceovered by the maintenance agreement or warranty. This car is so much fun to drive! It's even better because of the cabrio roof.

Awesome! — Fun car altogether with great mileage driving at 70mpg. Great handling even in snow with proper tires. Do not put the run flats that come with the car. If you have a baby, it is difficult to access the baby seat in the back, but it is easier for a kid to get to back seat and stay there comfortably. Surprisingly roomy for an average size adult.

Fast, Bold Look, Easy to Clean

Cons

Expensive repairs, bumpy, cramped

2005 Mini Cooper S — Installed an Alta Cold Air Intake Version 2. - I love it's unique look and quick acceleration. - Dislike the super bumpy ride. Loud noise in cabin. - Expensive to fix up. Hydraulic engine mounts rupture frequently and are no longer covered. - As long as you maintain it you shouldn't have a problem.

Mini Review — I never have driven a better, fun to drive front wheel drive car. Peformance is excellent, handling is excellent and it looks err like a mini. My only criticism is fuel consumption and the price of run flat tyres and spares.

Mini Cooper S! — It's a MINI. What more can you say? It's fast, great build quality, great styling and luxury features. Because it's made by BMW, it's pricey to fix, but it's well worth it. I love the car and his name is MC "Tipsy" William.

The way it makes you feel when you drive it.

One Of The Best Cars On The Planet! — It's absolutely the most fun you can have with your clothes on. Period! It corners as if on rails, it accelerates like being shot of a canon, and it looks fast even sitting still. Bets overall car I have ever owned!
