Mini Cooper Cabrio — it's a MINI. 'nuff said! It handles better than anything else I've driven. It accelerates well.Very few repairs so far.It has a very unique design inside and out. I've only paid for gas and new tires since I got it. Everything else has been ceovered by the maintenance agreement or warranty. This car is so much fun to drive! It's even better because of the cabrio roof.

Pros: fun to drive, good on gas, fun to drive

Cons: decent visability when top is up

Mini Cooper S: Unbeatable! — The car has soul! it is great for jumping round town, it's fun to take on 2 person road trips, it's acceptable on the highway, and who can complain about the fuel consumption? Current mods: 17" O.Z. Ultraleggeras wrapped in Dunlop SP Sport Maxx's, Helix custom CAI. Hoping for: BlueFlame Exhaust, TurboKompressor kit.

Pros: It hauls, and it's fun as hell!

Cons: it costs money.

Pocket Rocket!! — Have played around with the car since I bought it. Added a 15% reduction supercharger pulley, Unichip, Palo Uber hood scoop, modified the airbox and fitted a performance filter, sports exhaust, denso cooler plugs, and added imported ceramic brakes. 157kw and 309nm torque. Amazing for a 1.6l. OPC and GTI eater!!! Love it!!

Pros: Great handling, light and nimble

Cons: Not much, oh - almost no boot.

2005 Mini Cooper S Jc Works — Great handling car with tiny depreciation. We could probably sell the car for not much less than we paid 3 years ago. Handles superbly, and the supercharged and John Cooper Works tuned engine gives adequate performance in a small car. Still brings a smile to my face when I drive it

Pros: Quick, nimble and great handling

Cons: Small space for luggage and rear passengers

Fun To Drive, Looks Great, Awesome Gas Mileage. — Decent acceleration with the base Cooper. Build quality is good except for minor issues. I installed the side skirts which are OEM parts. Fuel economy is good. 50L tank, I get an average of 800km's per tank. That's about 45mpg. Fun factor is amazing. Just like the commercial says. "Go-Kart handling"!

Pros: Same as review above.

Cons: Some minor build issues, price of factory accessories.

Fun Car Not A Daily Driver. — the performance is good, I've done 110 on the track. quick braking, solid handling. Needs TLC, not to be road hard. Repairs cost me about 6k a year. Everything must go through the dealer so you pay top dollar for everything. overall the quality is so/so, I've had leaks in the sunroof, fan failures, computer glitches, stalls, you name it. you can't beat the look of the car, inside and out it is a good looking car. sporty and classy. The best part about the car is the other owners, 3 years and we still wave at each other.

Pros: Great looks, Fun driving, still good on gas.

Cons: Expensive repairs.

Minis Are Too Much Fun. You Might Not Be Able To Handle It! — i love my mini! i don't think i could even drive another car. she handles like a champ and "corners like she's on rails". They are moderately priced, prior to add all the "extras". bobbing and weaving in traffic was never so much fun before purchasing my mini, sonshyne. :) i love attention, and my car and i certainly get it!

Pros: since the car has a small backseat, most people think of it as a 2 seater; therefore, i don't get asked for many rides.  

Cons: somehow, after rain or condensation, i always manage to be wearing it if i have the window open.  it's really annoying.

My Mini Max — Best car for Summers in New Mexico...Hands Down. It turns heads especially with the top down and with the Harmon Kardon sound system it is fun to zoom down the highway with my tunes. Alternatively it is the worst card for New Mexico's gravel/dirt roads or harsh snowy winters. Not a snow car at all. Right now...I love it....Summertime with high gas prices=I am in love with my MINI MAX.

Pros: Summertime and High Mileage with plenty of REV!

Cons: Snow and Bumpy Roads.

Love My Mini — This car still makes me smile every time I see it, and every time I drive it. Yes it runs on Premium, but that tank lasts me 2.5 weeks vs every week with my previous F150. I can't recommend the MINI enough. Love it!

Pros: Handling, looks, MPG

Cons: Not having enough time to drive it every day.
