    Overall Great If You Don't Need Cargo/seating Space. A Go-kart On The Street — Fun, quick and great handling! Cargo space and rear seats are next to non- existent. Makes the daily commute to work fun, and fun for track days. Beautiful interior design, great retro feel (gauges, switches, etc). Overall great if you don't need cargo/seating space. A go-kart on the street :D

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great handling, quick, fun and beautiful.

    Cons: No cargo or extra seating space really. Some parts/maintenance work can be pricey.

    Jes' Pocket Rocket — I had always wanted to test drive a Mini, but never made time to do it .... but i knew that i would enjoy it .... so when my wife saw this 2004 car on ebay, with the 17" wheels, and an auto, which she needed .... for only £3900, i thought it would make an ideal car for her, as she'd just passed her UK test .... So when i drove it for the first time, i knew that i had already bought it ..... Now we both drive it, and i enjoy it, just like my old BMC Mini's.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: love the wheels, looks and its fun to drive

    Cons: too many warning lights which pester a fun package. Auto is a bit sluggish to respond.

    Perfect Car For Two Or Three — I love the fuel economy, I love it on twisty country roads, and it is great to park. I also like the color of the rims and the upgraded sound system. Acceleration is good but I would like to put an air intake, chip, and new exhaust on it. Even without that the car is a hoot to drive, good on gas, and plenty of room for three people...I am 6'7". Braking is sufficient so no complaints there. I always feel safe and in control driving it! Torque steer is almost unnoticeable. Undetectable in normal driving. The build quality is decent but there are a few pieces of plastic that tend to make noise.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great on gas, fun to drive, easy to park. Firm suspension, great on suburban roads. Good sound system.

    Cons: Firm suspension, harsh on bumpy roads. But my car has been  set to be more aggressive.

    I Love It! — The MINI Cooper S has a personality of its own. It holds it's own performance wise. Go-cart handling, snappy acceleration, and great braking are all guaranteed to give you miles of smiles. Manufactured by BMW, it has great build quality and holds its resale value. Gas mileage is decent and it is very dependable. I haven't had any trouble with this car after "owning" it for over two years. And believe it or not, it still turns heads and is a conversation piece wherever I go.

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

    Pros: Fun to drive, reliable, guaranteed miles of smiles

    Cons: still searching for an answer to this one...
