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.

Mini Cooper S — Great acceleration. Well built car. Very strong brakes, hugs turns like a champ, and shifts very smooth, if you know a standard transmission. Just some minor (very) sqeaks, nothing big. Looks awesome. Amazingly good gas mileage. This car is absolutely a blast to drive, whether around town, or anywhere. Love It

GO CART

Cons

Small Trunk

Great Car — Its a GO CART. Should have gotten the S though, but this think still has lots of pep and performance. Storage space is an issue, however, with the two front seats folded down there is lots of room for gear. Its really a 4 seater with no storage, or a 2 seater with storage.

Mini Coopers Are Awesome...heres Why. — Our car is great. Mini Coopers are very thrilling cars. There fun to drive, and drive very well. There perfromance is not fantastic but at the size and weight it is, it doesnt matter, you can still do 150mph at a 183bhp Mini Cooper S. It sticks to the ground like super glue, its very quick and fast. Vey small on the outside, but very very roomy on the inside. the current driver is 6' 3" and is 240 pounds. He has no problem with the mini. Plenty of Space. Its a great car over all.
