    Mini One 2002 — I loved this car so much, but the built quality was quite poor. I mean what car, after 40,000 mile needs a new gear box and steering rack? Plus BMW's customer service was not a lot of cop either!!!!!! But she great for slinging into corners and she held the road very well and gave good MPG

    Pros: Ride comfort

    Cons: Bulid quality

    Base Cooper — It is the equivalent to an adult gokart, slotcar and motorized roller skate. Every time I drive it, it just makes me happy. Saying that about a 115 HP car after owning a Lightning, Several Mustangs and various other 300+ HP vehicles should tell you something about the MINI. It's just an amazing little car.

    Pros: When approaching a corner, one does not have to slow down! Unless something is in ones way and even then I can probably avoid it easily. It is slow in a straight line, but at least it gets 38mpg on the highway. Ours is completely set up for SCCA HS Solo1 competition, the fun factor is through the roof!

    Cons: There are a couple rattles that I am chasing down, but other than that honestly I can't find any negatives. The car is raced and as such should have a few rattles and quirks.

    Mini Cooper S "mr. S" — I love everything about my car!!!!!!!!! It handles like a dream and is decent on speed. Also great gas mileage. This insurance is super cheap since it has a 5 star crash test rating. Its just an all around awesome car for looks and performance the best in my opinion.

    Pros: All around awesome car

    Cons: nothing

    My Car With The Biggest Fun Factor — Well from the cars I own/have owned, I really love this car the most. It's my fun car which I love to drive during weekends, runs with the club or other mini clubs. During the pas years a few things have been modified and added so now it looks finished (although some new rims, calipers ...)

    Pros: handling, cornering, cruising

    Cons: would have loved more power :(

    Mini Cooper — MINI rocks, but gotta have cash to maintain it .So if you are wealthy and can afford a MINI. BUY at least 3 of them! So fun to drive . I have taken mine 16 hours into Mexico 3 times. I have been to Cali and Vegas countless times and love my car. except maintenance has been uber expensive and right now it is in the shop which has cost me 3 grand already and still counting. I would rather eat ramen noodles than give it up though.

    Pros: LUFF IT! he is my bradley.

    Cons: EXPENSIVE TO FIX. Hard to find mechanic who knows how to work on them

    Handles Like It Is An Adult Size Version Of A Go-kart. — Responsive handling and turning, fantastic mileage in today's gas prices, and is large on room inside despite the appearance from the outside. Truly a commuter car that makes it fun to commute.

    Pros: handles well and is responsive. like that lights at night - very bright.

    Cons: windshield wiper fluid doesn't appear to hold much and they squirt on headlights when you don't want them to - when lights are also on.

    Pros: handles/drives awesome, great gas mileage, very safe for such a small car

    If I Won The Lottery, This Car Would Be In My Garage. — absolutely amazing car... the whining of the supercharger sound, the chuckability, the lift-off oversteer, the popping and banging of the exhaust, just everything. the size ain't a problem either. my wife and two kids in the back don't complain, and the boot is big enough (a trip to ikea to buy our dining furniture proved that). so when people say its just a fashion icon, too big for a mini and its too small, tell them to drive it first before they past judgement coz this little car brought a smile to my face whenever i drove it. my biggest regret is that i sold it.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: it can handle more power easily
