Jcw Cabrio — Performance is exhilerating with the added engine mods. Handling is second to none, it feels robust. The appearance is a classic with a retro interior. The most fun you can have, with the top down, in its price range. Sometimes repairs can be costly.

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

Pros: Excellent performance, Head-turner

Cons: Bit top-heavy, Dashboard squeaks.

A Well-rounded Everyday Car — This car looks great, i'm always getting second looks. The breaking, acceleration and handling are great as is the gas mileage. The parts seem to last forever! If you like to have fun driving this is the car for you.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The most fun for the money

Cons: NONE!

Ever See "the Italian Job"? — Quick, responsive, holds the road, fun to drive. Gas mileage around 30mpg on the highway. I've had the car for 3more than 3 years and nothing's gone wrong. Needed new tires - but part my fault for not having them rotated.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: heck of a good time

Cons: no room for a party

The Wife's Mini Cooper S Convertible — It is the wife's car and it is a blast to drive on the winding, hilly roads of Missouri. Hugs the road like crazy clue and is almost impossible to lose traction. For a small car, it is built like a tank at almost 3000lbs (built by BMW). The Getrag transmission pretty good, but I think there is not enough gap between 1st and 2nd gear.

Pros: Fun and fast, 34mpg, Retains highest value of any car on the road.

Cons: With it being a convertible, when the top is up the blind spot the the driver's right rear is very bad.

Super Cooper — Performance: responsive, and tight. extreamly sticky in the turns! breaks super fast! Build Quality: excelent, have not had any issues with cabin noises. Cost of ownership: super cheap! 36 MPG (combo) doesnt need any extra maintenance other than the usual. Fun Factor: its a MINI! need i say more?!?! I recomend this car to anyone under 7ft who has a drivers licence... no excusses!

Pros: The funnest car ive ever driven! Right off the lot it is extreamly capable and super safe!

Cons: The typical American is too ignorant to understand that SUVs are not necessities- so they automatically think you are crazy when you suggest this car for them.

Beauty In Desguise. Well Done Bmw. — amazing power for a car like this.it looks and feel very solid and strong for a 1600 cc car. never underestimate anything small. they can give you surprises. try this beast in disguise it's really gonna rock you. but a little expencive to feed her. she keeps asking for more speed the more she asks the more she drinks.

Pros: power, thrils, amazing.

Cons: very very thirsty, and expencive to maintain.
