It was in very bad shape. The pictures do not reflect the true condition of the car. Broken ac compressor, windows not working, check engine light is on.

I Love This Car And Will Have Another Mini Later — The driving experience is great, the manual gears are really nice, it is easy to park and it is a beautiful car. The stereo is fantastic, particularly the bass. The sun roof is big and interior design are terrifc. Both guys and girls love the car.

Pros: Reliable, great to drive, stereo is amazing, etc..

Cons: Families should have a bigger car

The Most Fun You Can Have With Your Clothes On! — This car's picture is next to the definition of fun to drive in the dictionary. I have a blast with it on the road or on the track. Fun, quick, reliable and awesome in the corners, this one's a keeper.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles like a go cart

Cons: Rides like a go cart

What A Great Piece Of British Engineering!!! So Much Fun. — Acceleration is very good with the 5-speed manual transmission. Car feels very solid, responsive and stable at freeway speeds (in Arizona that's pretty fast). Makes one feel really comfortable and safe even though it is a small car. Overall, this is just one FUN car drive!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great looking and fun driving car. Very comfortable on long trips with top down. Surprising, no rattles in this convertible and for an eight year old car, everything still works and looks outstanding (top still in perfect shape).

Cons: Honestly can not think of any - well, maybe more road noise with run flat tires.

Super Mini — I like the excellent gas mileage, the head room & ability to move the seat back for maximum leg room. This car drives smooth, has good speed & is easily driven in colder climates with snow. I can even get two cars seats in the back.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I am tall & have lots of headroom.

Cons: Nothing

Spifffy Sport Comfort - Your Date Night Car — Like the Cockpit feel and look, steering wheel, handling, wipers, headlights, braking, fuel economy, and date night car. The size and location of the two cup-holders, and cig/charger location could be tough to get used to, but not sure if any thing could help here except getting the cup-holder accessory.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cockpit feel and look, steering wheel, handling, wipers, headlights, braking, fuel economy, and date night car

Cons: size and location of cup-holders, cigarette/phone charger location/access.

A Great Little Car For Non-commuters — I really like this car, its got tons of character, is always fun to drive and can carry myself and my kids with no problems. I don't drive much so its great for a kid drop off and grocery getter :)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Awesome handling and a bundle of fun in the summertime with the top down!  Great looking and peppy daily driver

Cons: Runflat tires make for a rough ride on bad roads, glove box sized trunk

Delightful — Other than driving on rough streets the car behaves great. It's always fun and makes a trip pleasurable. The sunroof is fantastic, even if popped up in the rear a little, allowing fresh air in. There's still some Mini driver recognition as you see others and wave, while thinking about that cars' color/detail elements.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Oustanding car to drive as it provides all kinds of feedback. The engine is responsive and it "whines" louder as you step harder on the gas pedal while the supercharger pumps out power. Simultaneously the exhaust note is a great entertainer. Steering and brakes are direct and excellent. There's tons of leg and headroom up front.

Cons: Back seat is a joke- I didn't buy it for a over two person car- should they just delete it?
