My Mini Cooper S — I loved this car. it was bought in Feb 2006 and traded in in Jan 2007. Nothing ever went wrong with it and it never let me down. These are great cars but can be a little small for trips and holidays.

Pros: handling, supercharger whine, coolness!!

Cons: small boot, always had a dirty bum!!

Mini Cooper S — A cutesy car to be seen in sending your kids to school or running errants. Won't recommend for high speed highway driving as the stability of the car left something to be desire of...

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...

2004 MINI Cooper John Cooper Works Review
The 2004 Mini Cooper S JCW R53 is a tiny beast. If you are able to drive a manual and want to feel like someone on a racetrack, just get yourself such a car. This model is pretty light and has also a good amount of power. It doesn`t use to much fuel, no matter waht you do. If your into drivin up mountains, you gonna love this car. Feels like a go-Kart

Power Ranked 1998 Cadillac DeVille d'Elegance Sedan FWD better.
"It only has more HP than the Mini Cooper, but is way heavier, so it wouldn`t be completly correct to say the DeVille has more power than the Cooper"
Handling Ranked 1998 Cadillac DeVille d'Elegance Sedan FWD worse.
"The 2004 Mini Cooper S JCW R53 has way more power for it`s size and a way better handling than the 1998 Cadillac DeVille dElegance. "
Looks/Style Ranked 1998 Cadillac DeVille d'Elegance Sedan FWD worse.
"I like the rounds with the Cooper way more then the edges of the DeVille but everybody has its own taste."
Front Seats Ranked 1998 Cadillac DeVille d'Elegance Sedan FWD better.
"Fully electrical adjustable"
Back Seats Ranked 1998 Cadillac DeVille d'Elegance Sedan FWD better.
"Well, if you ever sat in a Cooper you`ll get me. the Cooper is a tiny car, it has backseats but they are not much of use."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1998 Cadillac DeVille d'Elegance Sedan FWD better.
"Please take a look at the topic for family cars."
Family Car Ranked 1998 Cadillac DeVille d'Elegance Sedan FWD better.
"You can fit up to 6 people and 4-6 duffle bags in the DeVille, in the mini you could fit 4 people and 3-4 duffle bags."
Value Ranked 1998 Cadillac DeVille d'Elegance Sedan FWD better.
"I would say the value of a car always depends on the needs of the buyer, if you are a collector you shouldn`t miss out a good DeVille if you have a chance, they will be youngtimers by the year of 2023. This will put up the value on the market. By the year of 2033 it even will be considered a oldtimer."
Would Buy Ranked 1998 Cadillac DeVille d'Elegance Sedan FWD worse.
"If you live in a city you will know why."
