Overall:

This car is a one of a kind find; in absolutely pristine condition for a 2005 Cooper S. It is an absolutely beautiful car and a terrific value as priced. The only downside is the sport exhaust which is VERY aggressive. I will replace with Borla touring pipes. The supercharger needs to be replaced at 112k miles but that was expected and a Harrop upgrade is planned. Love this Gen 1 Mini.

Overall:

Sporty steering and fun to drive, but lacks power (even the supercharged S). For a 2005 with 83k miles, it also had quite a few loose and rattling parts... Doesn’t seem like a safe car for highway speeds among larger vehicles.

Overall it’s a reliable car and is a blast to drive however if you live in an area that gets heavy snowfall it might be best to get the model that is higher off the ground, both are suitable for light snow

Fun Fun Fun — This car turns the heads and I have received so many compliments on it. People stop me all the time to ask about the car. My two teenaged boys and I drove it to from Seattle to Chicago and back on a road trip and had a great time. There was plenty of room for all of us, including the luggage. This car is great for long trips or short trips.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car is very reliable and quick around the corners or just going down the street.  It is so much fun to drive.  This is a lot more roomy than it appears, and I have packed in quite a lot of IKEA furniture or groceries before!

Cons: The back seats have little leg room unless the front seats are pulled all the way forward.  I have packed in 4 teenaged boys though for a quick trip to football practice!

We bought a 2017 Mini Cooper S. We needed to find a smaller light weight coupe to pull behind a class B RV. Price, size, power, equipment of the S model is we think? A good fit! Read More
