    If You're In The Market For A Small, Economic And Fun Car, This Is It —

    Performance: not exactly a fast car, however it makes up for its lack of speed through amazing handling. Build Quality: since the new MINI brand is owned by BMW, most of the parts apart from the engine are from BMW so in that aspect it's very good. the only problem I've ever had with this car is that at one point the power lock on the driver's side stopped working, this has been repaired however. Appearance: this MINI is in near mint condition both inside and out. the only signs of wear are a few scratches on the front of the car and a chip in the chrome where rocks have hit it. it is in a very exclusive color called velvet red which is very much like maroon. Cost of Ownership: this MINI is very nearly fully loaded. it even has the sport suspension. the only features it lacks are the navigation system and the sunroof. overall price was about $24,000. gas mileage is terrific, you get mid to high 20s in the city and low to mid 30s on the highway. Fun Factor: if you find a twisty road, there are very few cars which will offer the fun factor of a MINI. while the ride can be harsh in the city and on the highway, the stiff sport suspension makes sense when you feel how this thing corners. it's easily one of the most fun cars you can buy for the money.

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

    Pros: fun drive, nice to look at, great fuel economy

    Cons: cramped back seat, limited storage space, hard ride

    Small But Spirited — This car is like an oversized go-kart--great handling and good acceleration due to its light weight. Supercharged engine provides nice linear power response, six-speed Getrag manual is smooth as butter. The only thing i would change would be to decrease the stiffness of the clutch.

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

    Pros: Fun to drive

    Cons: Odd interior proportions

    Best Car Ever! — I love my ride, Its not an S, and it is slap-shift. What I really wanted was a 5-speed Cooper S. But I love it nevertheless. I Named It Alice, I bought a sound system for it, which cost me amost 700 bucks. Which I paid in full. Right now I am saving for new wheels and tires.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sweet Spedometer, Easy to drive, Chick magnet.

    Cons: No Backseat room

    1977 Mini Clubman — Quick 0 to 100 in 6.0sec, what brakes, go kart handling with no suspension, tuff as a brick, all ways needs new parts, it shakes you to peices on the freeway, matt grey paint job, cost me about $4000 in about 8 years of spending, fuel mileage- its a mini. Best fun you can ever EVER have with a car.

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

    Pros: small and fast

    Cons: its so old

    People Wave At Me Beacause My Car Is Cute — its pretty quick, silver with a black top and grey interior. Since an S model it is supercharged, that means premium fuel, i only use shell since its down the street but it doesn't make a difference, the stereo is good but in my model an ipod connnector would be aftermarket.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: its cute

    Cons: its small

    My Big Beast — I love my little car. She has a DVD player and sports exhaust system as well as better speakers. The fuel economy is really good, she gets down to around 5L/100km when cruising on the highway and around 6L/100km around town.

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

    Pros: Everything
