    2002 Mini Cooper Chili 1.6 — The initial experience from the dealership wasnt great. The car that arrived (after waiting nearly 3 months) was not the car that I ordered. The re-order arriced in 4 weeks ...go figure! Lights, exhaust, sterring wheel, trim were all replaced under warranty. The UK TLC service package (5 years serviceing for £100) was great...so no servicing bills for the 3 years I owned the car. Performance wasnt bad, Build quality wasnt great...for a BMW! Run Flat Tyres were expensive and a real pain to change as the tyre walls are so rigid, the Alloys were damaged when the tyres were replaced Very entertaining to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Style, Warranty, TLC package, fun to drive

    Cons: Build Quality, interior space, Run flat tyres

    Sporty And Cute — Small cc car with amazing power,fun car to drive but not everyday,reason is cooperS is a drinker. Price is reasonable to own one. acceleration 0-100 in 6.8s. The more you look at the car the more you will love it.

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

    Pros: When I feel like speeding

    Cons: Dont want to let the mileage run

    Cooper S - A Hot Little Hatch — Only problem with this car is that it is FWD. Nippy go-kart handling, go-build quality, can be economical if driven with a light foot, but if the power is needed it is there. Managed to get 38-40 MPG on a 50 mile run, that consisted mainly of motorway driving. Solid BMW build quality,

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: driving it feels like taking part in the Italian Job

    Cons: small boot

    It A Very Fun Car 2 Drive Ull Always Have A Smile On Ur Face — well it lacks a bit of power so dont expect 2 much top end speed or amazing acceleration but it is amazingly fast considering its 1800cc engine and it has pretty good torque.i think for being such a wimpy looking car its has a good engine. handiling is pretty solid its like driving a go kart its very fun but the brakes arnt the best some times i find my self douting if im gona stop b4 i reach the next car but overall its a very fun car 2 drive.

    Pros: it fits every where and it very cheap to use

    Cons: very little pace 4 passengers  any one in the back seat will b very cramp

    My Mini — First MINIs are AWESOME!!! They are small, fast and sleek. Now of course, the Classic MINIs are much much smaller than the the New ones are. But still MINIs can fit any where you want. Mine is a manural so acceleration is as good as I am. Braking is fantastic, she can stop on a dime. Trust me, I know. I have had some weird things happen to her. Like she has a leak that comes out at the passenger side feet area. I know that you are probably thinking its a sunroof problem, but it is not the sunroof. I am having it fixed but I don't know what is causing it yet. Appearance is great! The newer ones are especially cool. Now MINIs hold there value exeptionally well. Mine is worth $18,000 and its an '02! It gets an average of 27 mpg and really only has the basic car maintanence. Did I mention they are a blast to drive. You can take corners like no other, change lanes at the slightest touch of the wheel, and have almost zero blind spots. All in all, I will never want another kind of car again. MINIs FOREVER!!!

    Pros: Great Fun to drive and a head turner.

    Cons: Expensive to repair after a crash.

    Best All Around Car For The Price. — Overall this car was pretty much unbeatable for the price. The quality was excellent from a mid $20ks car, and the performance was exceptional The straight line power of the MINI is nothing to discuss, even if you swap the stock super charger pulley for a 15%, it still won't win you any races. The handling characteristics are almost unmatched any other car. The cars ability to change direction and stick the road, with its great response in the steering wheel made me carve Mulholland Drive just about every night. The car is a bit played out now, and I am not a fan of the new styling changes that came this past year. Also, I prefer super chargers over turbos, and now the MINI Copper S is a turbo charged car.

    Pros: Styling, economy, performance

    Cons: Rear seats

    Mini Cooper — This cars is really great fun to drive on a tarmac but it would need some more power, the S has it but with a price. It wasn't so expensive to own as I imagined. Otherwise a great small car but just not the best one in winter. I liked it.

    Pros: Looks, Handling, Cool Factor, Consumption

    Cons: Winter Capability
