    Lovely Runabout — looks like a toy car , grip the road very well . a bit bumpy as i'm used to comfort after 10 years away from hot hatches ! plastics are a bit cheap , gearbox does feel fragile for a german motor. as the fuel and running costs are alot lower than the X5 , who cares if its a bit small .

    Pros: roadholding , looks cute and does not stand out from the crowd.

    Cons: harsh ride , tiny rear seats.

    What´s The Point Of Buying A Station Wagon? Get A Small Car! — Supercharger sound, good looking, fun to drive, good performance, really nice in the corners, others hate you when you don´t break in the corners, the police don´t like you, when your speeding, with the possible exception of some female policeofficers that thinks it´s cute, big enough, damn good fun.

    Pros: A lot

    Cons: To big speedometer

    Love It — LOVE IT, better than my 06 330i... It out handles the BMW, as it is so small. It is quiet, comfortable, quick, good on gas, good looking... Free maintenance is sweet too. I can't wait to get another some day, it is paid off so I will keep it a while.

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Back Seat Access

    Ill Love It Forever — This car has a very special place in my heart. The handling is just superb. Mine is plane stock, nothing extra on it, and it handles like a go cart, much much better anything else in the same pricerange. I have been going to trackdays with it, and its so easy to read. Very easy to go very fast around the bends. Acceleration and top speed is better than I had hoped for, esspecially when you consider that it only has 115 BHP and it still does 6.2L/100 KM when outside of the city, in the winter it only does 9.2L/100km in the city. The looks is better than the new new mini, the hood is much nicer with the bigger curves. But the build quality is not the best. No the typical BMW standart. The mark.II mini is much better build. I had it from new, and it still gives me a smile on my libs. My girlfriend loves it for the looks and the handling. I changed the gearbox, the generator, a computercontrolbox. All under warranty. Oh, yes and the servo pump as well. This is not okay for a new car. The price is a lot here in Denmark, actually is over the top. Very pricy. But still, this is the best money ever spend for me!!

    Pros: looks, handling, charisma

    Cons: build quality and price (very exspensive in Denmark)

    Great Little Car For A Single Person But Not Practical For A Family Person. — Don't hold the value unless you take it back to the dealers to part ex for another Mini. Not much space in the boot for shopping as i realised the first time i went to Asda. It is the type of car you buy, have fun with it and sell it on.

    Pros: The performance and handling from such a little car, easy to park in small spaces and a real head turner.

    Cons: Sports suspension gives a very bumpy ride if the road surface is bad or if you live where i do and expensive to run (tax and fuel).

    Absolute Joy To Own, Individualise, Tinker With, And Of Course... Drive! — The MINI Cooper is a benchmark in small premium cars that exude attainable style, function, and fun. With endless options to tinker and individualise the cars almost no two are exactly alike. Peppy power, strong design elements, and a "go its own way" ethos, the MINI is a modern classic with appeal to male and female, young and old, and all income brackets. The car can commute, haul reasonable loads for its size, is easy on petrol, is a performance vehicle in "S" trim, and has a great automotive history. Don't buy a MINI if you hate cars or only view a car as a means to get from point A to B. That the MINI does just like any other vehicle, but the MINI does it with style and makes the journey FUN.

    Pros: Styling, individualism, driving enjoyment, fuel efficiency, performance

    Cons: Only one:  Can get pricey when adding up the spec sheet.

    I Love Darting Around And Squeezing Between Things — The Mini is a great car from travelling around London. Though not as comfortable and a bit underpowered on longer trips and at higher speeds, it's perfectly adequate for shorter trips and handles great on B-roads. And I love darting around and squeezing between things in the city. The only thing better would be a bike, but sometimes I need four wheels :P

    Pros: small but with four real seats, steering and handling

    Cons: bit underpowered

    It Might Be Considered A Chicks Car, But The V8's Start To Shake When Its Starts Moving! — This car is a road race/auto-x beast! It will out handle some very nice cars and it is underestimated by all!

    Stupid Fun To Drive — If you like a car that can outhandle most production cars on the road and acceleration is not necessarily as important, this car is for you. I modified mine to make it faster, but it would have cost lots to make it a fast car.

    Pros: Handling, comfort, supercharger whine, comes almost track ready...

    Cons: none, really...
