    Good Fun For Those That Love It — The turbo and acceleration of this car is unbelievable! from absolutely no revs at all the torque kicks in and in every gear, doesn't push up to top end as enthusiastically though. Good brakes, steering talks to you and gives confidence, very solid, good german build quality.

    Pros: That engine! Fun to drive, feels very solid and planted.

    Cons: Looks, interior, the fact its too uber german, plus it stole the character of the original

    The Most Fun Car Ever!! — It's a fun car that goes fast, handles amazingly well and gets good gas mileage. Also the insurance is considered a compact economy car so it's inexpensive to insure. I really love my car, and as with any car there are always some problems, but everything has been minor.

    Pros: That it is fun to drive, you always get tons of attention, and it's customizable.

    Cons: The local dealer isn't the greatest, but maybe when MINI has it's own service area it'll be better.

    Come On, Not A Bad Thing To Say About It — Doing 50000+ miles a year, not the natural choice, but handles like a go-kart and with a few extras it makes it quite civilised. Cruise control is the best feature :-)

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Rear seats are cramped

    A Smal Car With Lots Of Fun Inside — This car would seem to be cramped however the Mini Cooper offers plenty of room even with the top up. Plus the tight suspension with the whining supercharger makes this car a pleasant performer!

    Pros: The supercharger whine when going through the gear and also the tight suspension. You also gotta love the retro interior.

    Cons: None.
