    Perfect Car For 1-2 People — great car for running around places...also great on the highway...very solid and stable...turns on a dime...plenty of power to stay out of trouble...can park where others can't which is great for going to special events and such...not a car to have if you do not want people asking you how much you like it...not for everyone but the car I have wanted for 40 yrs...super stereo...perfect little bubble for traffic jams...

    Pros: traffic, parking, mpg, handling, view, not too common, 20,000 posible combinations to order, just neat little car...

    Cons: back seat space...small people and car seats only...lol...

    Fun To Drive Like A Go-kart! — This is my wife's car but I drive it often on week-ends

    Pros: Great to drive and look amazing with the white accents and stripes on the bonnet

    Exilarating! The Most Fun In 4 Wheels Ever! — There is nothing I can say bad about it....or maybe if you have to travel for LONG periods of time, say like 7 hours straight. The short wheel base and the thin tires make it a bit chalenging on long routes. But then again, it's not made for that. PURE FUN AND JOY!

    Pros: TOO MANY!

    Cons: check my full review!

    The First Of A Long Line Of Mini's — Silk Green, with Emerald Green leather interior. Extremely rare color combo. CVT transmission was a worry factor.

    Pros: Looks, Handling.

    Cons: CVT Transmission.

    2002 Mini Cooper — Bought in 2002. Nice handling car but very slow. Had the sport package, everything from the 'S' except the engine....

    Pros: Incredible handling

    Cons: Slow as hell, worst winter car ever.

    Girly But Fun — Yeah ok bit girly, not half as much fun as a proper mini but still a laugh to chuck about. About time they got a proper engine.

    Pros: Build quality, handling, cheap beemer

    Cons: A bit hair dressery. Not as fast as it should be

    Go See Italian Job — Although car is small, the interior seems surprisingly spacious given the ample head room and upright windshield. Preventive maintenance, e.g. all fluid change, replace worn bushings, is a must! With a few modifications, the Cooper S can be transformed to a fun, fast and comfortable daily driver. I recommend installing the 15% reduced pulley ($100), replacing the factory run-flats with regular tires ($500), and installing beefier rear anti sway bar like 19mm from Alta ($150).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fantastic car for zipping through traffic, city driving and parking in tight spots

    Cons: BMW pricing on parts and labor..
