Fun!! — Just a lille go cart. Can take corners like no other car can. But it is not the safest car to driv. No ABS, no ESP and no aribag. It is totaly up to you if you loos control to get et back.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The look's and it can turn head every time you drive it

Cons: No so Reliabel

Classic Mini — This is my dream car! It is very classic as my cup of tea, although it is only 1300cc and very small room inside. Its original shock absorber is nearly useless, and I have changed to use Koni already to raise its performance.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Classic.

Cons: Too small

Awesome — best car that has ever been made and is a brittish icon that will never get old. Performance is excelent on the cooper sport and is very fun to drive on little winding roads where it feels like a go kart to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Best handling.

Cons: none

Love It! — Amazing car to own out accerlerates many bigger engined cars (at least to 40mph) amazing round corners has tonnes of grip. Has issues with build quality and realiability but always puts a smile on my face when i drive it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of admiring looks when i pass

Cons: rovers are notouriously unrealiable (get an austin/morris/leyland mini instead
