Fun, Cool And Sporty —

The new mini was always going to be an issue, as the old one had always been the 'classic mini' and the new mini could really not do this status justice. However, when you put the production into the hands of BMW, you know that they will not mess the project up. And so in 2001 the first mini rolled off the production line. This car looks good from an overall point, and the interior is very 'retro and old school' but this is what people love. The engine is only a small 1.6 litre, but dont let the sound of a small engine decieve the speed of this car. I have tuned my mini and so it can do 0-60 in sub 8 seconds, it has a great roar sound about it, which comes from its sister cars (BMW's) and the handling is extremely responsive, very much like a large go kart. The downside to this car is that it tends to break (clutch, gearbox, power steering) and the list goes on. BMW didn't build this car as well as they could do, but try owning an old mini and not breaking down! 10/10 for looks, speed, sound 2/10 for reliability

Pros: Good looking, sporty, quick

Cons: Bad build quality

An Absolute Joy To Drive — not only is it a practicle, stylish hatch. With its supercarged 1600cc engine and fantastic weight distribution ive seen off plenty of porsches, scoobies etc :D

Pros: great noise from the supercharger, great throttle responce, pedals are perfect for heel n toe, and left footed braking

Cons: with run flats its can get quite bumpy on the long trips, and the power does influence your right foot, lol

Cute As A Button — It was so much fun driving that car!! Other people who drive mini's are just really nice and generally will let you cut in front of them and everything. People have a generally wonderful sense of humor.

Pros: Social car

Cons: It wasn't too quick

Mini, It's Me! — Excellent car, few electrical problems & sporadic dash rattling due to plastic dash. Mileage not the best & would love to get the cooper S power.

Pros: looks, character, drive, handling, visability

Cons: Gas mileage, no boot space, Cheap plastic on dash, fiddily seats, lots of extras required & these are expensive!

Pros: EVERYTHING!

Cons: Kinda odd to work on.
