too much fun!

Cons

Very small

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.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

My Mini — I loved my Mini but only 2 weeks after having it brand new I found out I was pregnant with my second child so I had to sell it one year later for a bigger family car :) Fabulous fun drive and funky to look at.

Pros

Handling, build quality, panoramic roof.

Cons

Rattles, the run flat tires

105

Everyones Gotta Mini — Acceleration, braking and handling will give any $100+ thousand dollar sports car a good run for the money. Know that if you ever purchase one of these cars you WILL EXPERIENCE CONSTANT RATTLES. Run flat tires can be a bit costly as any flat requires the entire tire to be replaced in most cases. The warranty and maintenance program on these cars are superb.

Pros

Power to weight ratio is good, handels like a go-kart.

Cons

for drivers only

35

The Big Go-kart — Its a BIG GO-KART thats it what else do u need to know. The performance is awsome, the 1.6L engine with the blower on its Mindblasting takes off like no tommrow and the 6speed transmission its just amazing. This vehicle is for people who want to drive not for the lite hearted who cant drive.

Great fun to drive

Cons

Gas mileage sucks for a car in its class

35

Most Fun Car I've Owned — My MCS is the more fun to drive than any of my previous cars. It handles like a go cart, has classic appearance, is extremely well built, and has been a great car to own. My only complaint is the gas mileage. Mini service has been very good and has taken great care of me and my car.

requires high octane...

Love Me, Love My Mini — So far so fun! How can someone not like a Mini? Um, yeah, if you want a sweet ass ride, you'll definitely want to get one. But only if you can handle it... Have I mentioned it's fun to drive? Now if only I can make room in the garage...
