    Special As Long As You Have Only One Other Person You Want To Take. — Looks great, goes great, handles great. Not very big inside especially in the rear seats - not even kiddies are happy back there. Dealers - well at 95 quid per hour they are a complete bunch of morons, taking 4 hours to change brake pads. Only got rid of it as duffed up my back and couldn't get out of it.

    Pros: Stylish, fun, great to drive. Best in Chilli Red with white roof, stripes, wheels and mirror covers.

    Cons: Very small inside, expensive and useless dealers, too many around now. Hard to get in and out if slightly dodgy back

    Gotta Love It!!! — I race my MINI in SCCA Autocross. It is just stock and keeps up with the Hondas and Suberu.. It is a great car... My Bulldog love riding in the back...

    Pros: Great Gas milage, amazing safety, fast 167 horsepower, supercharged just amazing

    Cons: Little cramped in the back but the back seats are deep so it is fine.

    Fun, Sexy Little Car — Its a cool sexy little car which is fun to drive, and easy to park. You can really show off in the summer, it feels and looks great with the roof down!

    Pros: It looks smart!

    Cons: It has a really small boot, no good for shopping.

    Much, Much Better Than My Previous 206!! — Hard to say that I love it. First, because I'm not sure it's very healthy to LOVE a car, and second because the accelerations are not ... as thrilling as I hope they would have been. On the other hand, it handles like a dream. I've got the ESP (an optional extra, so shame on you BMW) and no matter the weather conditions, you can hammer it as much as you want. It weighs about the same as the 206 I had before, but my God it handles better! You are always looking for twisty roads just to enjoy the perfect steering, the way the car moves under braking and then the way it balances itself when you get back on the throttle! Sure, it is a bit thirsty, and costly, and I wish it had more power, and yes, the ride can be harsh on a bumpy surface, but just look at it! So cute and there's this "so British" touch that I love.

    Pros: Cute, British and unbelievably fun to drive, oh and it's made by BMW.

    Cons: Costly, too many options (speccing it up can take years!) and the suspension/dampers are a bit stiff.

    Stupid Mini — I feel in love with this car at the motorshow... I needed something cute to replace my MX5.. I should have got the Cooper S, it was too heavy and too slow...

    Pros: Cute, 4 seats, no roof

    Cons: OMG where do I start, I HATED this car...

    A Lot Of Fun! — I have a blast driving this car everyday to work and back. It's one of the best city driving cars I've had. It's very easy to pass, change lanes, insert yourself in traffic, etc... Acceleration is pretty good, handling is great, overall driving experience is very fun! Ride is quite bumpy though!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great handling, very responsive, really fun to drive, great engine

    Cons: Bumpy ride
