Fun To Drive, Bad To Maintain. — I had the automatic Mayfair jobby, seats had head rests! As with all Mini customisation was key for enthusiasts - mine had a REAL custom exhaust (bendy pipe from manifold to first and only silencer held up with wire string, then two jubilee clips holding the silencer to the subframe). 12" mini-lites on a 10" set-up. Oh, and five colours - two blue, three red. Carpet for head lining. NO heating. Quality (see negatives below). Changed the head gasket multiple times got to unbolted and fitted and bolted back up ready to go again in 2 hours.

Pros: Too many to list, I would have one again.

Cons: Didn't like spending £600 on a £350 car and working on it every day over 3 months to keep it on the road.
