Great Piece Of British Car! — This is a Mini Classic! I could not say a bad word about my Precious ;) Acceleration, breaking and handling are fun producing factors and as far as joy-from-ride is concerned, I could not imagine to have a more fantastic car!

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

Pros: 1. FUN 2. LOVE 3. FUN ! :D

Cons: none

Terrific — Its got excellent handling due to it being about as small as a shoe, its light and nippy. Build quality does leave something to be desired in the simple fact that there can be some severe rust spots that develop. Exterior styling... its a John Cooper 500 original panels, it looks terrific. Interior is brushed aluminium with black and grey leather with the cooper sports pack. Its very good mpg due to it being 998CC. But best of all its great fun to drive!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun

Cons: high maintenance

Go-kart Handling Makes Loveable Car For Motorsport Enthusiast! — Pack kit makes this car a hell in humps and bumps, but on the smooth asphalt everything is forgotten. Handling, looks and low running costs are the main attractions and love/hate relationship is a sure and everyday thingie. I bought this car in 2003. The main reason for buying it was because I previously liked driving Mini in Rally Trophy car simulator. So, the PC-game was really expensive in the end! I selected as low mileage car as possible, because I have no car mechanics skills. So, I found really expensive car from Germany which was not driven in 2,5 years and got only 8200 kilometers driven. Since buying it in October 28th 2003, it has been drived 20000 per year (in 2007 I drove over 27000, because it has been my only car since spring 2006). I hope it continues to be as reliable as it has been - knocking the wood...

Pros: Handling, unbelievably ugly (but classic) looks, rather economical in everyday use, great car for masochist.

Cons: Acceleration, breaks, low ground clearanse, small petrol tank, non-practical in everyday use,... Well, probably every feature is bad for most of the "normal" people, but this car is for those who don't want to be normal.
