Small, Sporty And I Can Even Use This Car For Kid Carpool. — Great gas mileage...just a bit to small for real estate needs. Fun to drive! Accelerates like a dream, parking in Green Lake area is never a problem (fits anywhere). Really pretty mini...silver with tinted windows, moon roof AND sunroof.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Parking is a breeze...fits almost anywhere :)

Cons: A very cozy ride with our English Mastiff.

It's Super Fun To Drive, And Most Don't Mess Up Like Mine Has. — It has had really bad luck and I've had to replace the transmission (on a stick shift!!), clutch, some belts, and this other thing that cost $400. This car is super fun to drive! Gets really good gas mileage, downside is that it takes premium..

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

Pros: It's so fun to drive. Just like a Go-Kart.

Cons: Repairs

Its A Go-kart...for The Street. — Being made by BMW means build quality is superb. Go-kart quick steering response is great for on-ramps and twisties. Six speed Getrag transmission is extremely smooth shifting with a clutch on the lighter side in terms of effort. Turn the wheel and the car sticks. No power understeer; slight off power oversteer, but that's a good thing and rare for a FWD car. All in all its a fun little car that gets great gas mileage while also delivering awesome performance.

Pros: Handling, looks, gas mileage

Cons: Back seat is too small, not much else

Love It!! — Performance - I couldn't ask for more in terms of this. The car is small with wheels at each corner of the car, so the handling is like a go-kart, acceleration is brisk, brakes are excellent. Build Quality - I have to say that the build quality is good, but as you can also find in online forums, there are lots of little things that break often, such as the hydraulic engine mount and PS pump fan. The major parts seem to be quite sturdy though Appearance - Even after being on the market for nearly a decade, the Mini Cooper still turns heads and most people love it. Interior is quirky but practical and ergonomic. Cost of Ownership - This depends on how you drive. Cooper S I think are made to be driven hard (LOL) so fuel economy isn't THAT great on my car, perhaps around 25 mpg. Maintenance isn't too expensive compared to other European cars. Oil change seems costly at around 100 dollars, but they only have to be done once every 13000 miles or so. Fun Factor: I am pretty sure I don't have to write anything about this.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Maintenance can be expensive if you have NO knowledge about auto repair.

2005 Mini Cooper S — Installed an Alta Cold Air Intake Version 2. - I love it's unique look and quick acceleration. - Dislike the super bumpy ride. Loud noise in cabin. - Expensive to fix up. Hydraulic engine mounts rupture frequently and are no longer covered. - As long as you maintain it you shouldn't have a problem.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast, Bold Look, Easy to Clean

Cons: Expensive repairs, bumpy, cramped

Mini Review — I never have driven a better, fun to drive front wheel drive car. Peformance is excellent, handling is excellent and it looks err like a mini. My only criticism is fuel consumption and the price of run flat tyres and spares.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: looks, preformance and handling

Cons: spares prices, fuel consumption evil if you "ticlke the supercharger"

Mini Cooper S! — It's a MINI. What more can you say? It's fast, great build quality, great styling and luxury features. Because it's made by BMW, it's pricey to fix, but it's well worth it. I love the car and his name is MC "Tipsy" William.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Amazing

Cons: Keep on top of maintenance.
