Pros

Fast, Bold Look, Easy to Clean

Cons

Expensive repairs, bumpy, cramped

25

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.

Pros

looks, preformance and handling

Cons

spares prices, fuel consumption evil if you "ticlke the supercharger"

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.

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!

Fabulous — Performance is great. Would recommend the manual transmisson. Quality solid except for minor interior plastic details coming a part. Styling is sporty and easy to customize. Cost can be pricey once you start adding details. Too much fun!!! Love this car.
