Love This Car! Sporty, Small, And Unique — I have had this car for two years now. I love to drive it and the energetic little supercharged engine makes any drive thrilling! Stiff suspension smooth acceleration grips the road like a speedo!

Great Car For The Year, Miles, And Price! — This car is so cute, I loved driving it but it's time to expand. Having 1 more child is nice but the car I will miss. The car has all the things you'll need. Long road trips is were she shines also.

Cons

Great Car, Rwd Or Awd Would Be Amazing, But... — Supercharged, great performance, its like a go kart on crack, a true BMW under the hood, this thing flies. No Problems, and no cost of ownership so far, I do all the maintenance. I get about 23-25 mpg in the city, and around 30 on the highway, not too bad for a sportscar!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Excellent performance, Head-turner

Cons

Bit top-heavy, Dashboard squeaks.

Jcw Cabrio — Performance is exhilerating with the added engine mods. Handling is second to none, it feels robust. The appearance is a classic with a retro interior. The most fun you can have, with the top down, in its price range. Sometimes repairs can be costly.

Mcs Hyper Blue — Ever since the 2003 auto show in NY I have wanted one of these. This car holds the road like you wouldn't believe. The car has a huge following. I've been to events at Lime Rock which have been awesome.

Pros

Fun and fast, 34mpg, Retains highest value of any car on the road.

Cons

With it being a convertible, when the top is up the blind spot the the driver's right rear is very bad.

The Wife's Mini Cooper S Convertible — It is the wife's car and it is a blast to drive on the winding, hilly roads of Missouri. Hugs the road like crazy clue and is almost impossible to lose traction. For a small car, it is built like a tank at almost 3000lbs (built by BMW). The Getrag transmission pretty good, but I think there is not enough gap between 1st and 2nd gear.

Pros

The funnest car ive ever driven! Right off the lot it is extreamly capable and super safe!

Cons

The typical American is too ignorant to understand that SUVs are not necessities- so they automatically think you are crazy when you suggest this car for them.

Super Cooper — Performance: responsive, and tight. extreamly sticky in the turns! breaks super fast! Build Quality: excelent, have not had any issues with cabin noises. Cost of ownership: super cheap! 36 MPG (combo) doesnt need any extra maintenance other than the usual. Fun Factor: its a MINI! need i say more?!?! I recomend this car to anyone under 7ft who has a drivers licence... no excusses!

Beauty In Desguise. Well Done Bmw. — amazing power for a car like this.it looks and feel very solid and strong for a 1600 cc car. never underestimate anything small. they can give you surprises. try this beast in disguise it's really gonna rock you. but a little expencive to feed her. she keeps asking for more speed the more she asks the more she drinks.
