Love My Mini!!!!!! — Love this car - brakes are amazing (ABS of course), handling is amazing (DSC - Dynamic Stability Control - incorporates Corner Brake Control, Brake force distribution, ABS etc), performance is good, although the Cooper S does give a brilliant kick. Included is a full maintenance plan, so there are no repair/servicing costs. Small fuel tank, 40l, but it gets you very far... if you like to be noticed, then this is definitely the car for you!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Quick little zippy car. Tons of fun to drive

Suprisingly Fun, Great Handeling And Awesome Fuel Economy Mini — I was suprised what a powerful and fun car this 2012 Mini Cooper Convertible was. The handeling was not what I expected... In a good way. Even though it's small you totally feel in control and with the top down it's such fun. The wind blowing thru your hair... Well, not mine I don't have any, but I can imagine can't I :-)

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

Mini Cooper — Great small car for a single female. A bit slow, but you get amazing fuel economy in return! Handles amazing! This car is fun to driver and you get all the attention that you deserve! Has cute addition such as different color lights inside your car.
