    Small! — My car is one the best cars I have had, although the suspension is a little hard! It's 'nippy' and cute and the seats are really comfortable too. Looks great and it handles really well in the snow also! Every girl should have one, not a guys car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Performance.

    Cons: None.

    Great Car If You Don't Need A Big One. — Solid car. Nothing to really say bad about it. I want more power but I will take car of that down the road. Pretty much handles like a go-kart just bigger. The only down side I might say is that people are always saying "aww that is such a cute car" Or that it is a girl car.

    Pros: Fun, quick and handles like a go-kart

    Cons: If you need a larger car

    It Is Plain Awesome!! — So fun to drive!! You can go for a peaceful drive in normal mode or switch it to sports mode and cruise around at high speeds. The appearance is very sleek and sporty. The gas mileage is very high. We haven't had to any major maintenance on it except for changing the oil and putting new washer fluid in it but that's it for maintenance. Inside are sporty seats and a sporty stearing wheel. On the outside it has a hood scoop and a spoiler. Sun and moon roof. Really nice for sunny drives or rainy nights.

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

    Pros: Very fun to drive!!

    Cons: Can't think of any. Just too great of a car.

    Mini Cooper S Works — It is a Cooper S Works I once drove. Smooth through thr gears and very high revving where the turbo pulls u along very nicely. A few trim pieces falling off but over fine. Styling wise awsome with flared wheel arches and body kit. The car new is about £20 000 and is average on fuel consumtion for a hot hatch. WHat can be more fun than a mini, especially one with so much power!!!

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

    Pros: Fast, good value

    Cons: Build quality, insurance cost.

    Awesome — It's down right crazy. The handling is nimble, the performance from a 1.6 liter twin scroll turbo is unbelievable. Personally I am going to get the JCW kit. Service is classic BMW. Best first car possible!!! 17in run-flats are expensive and give a slight rough ride but they provide peace of mind and good grip for a daily commute.

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

    Pros: FAST, underrated

    Cons: It depends on what you want

    2008 Mini Cooper — This is good looking car. In the past I drove Hondas and Toyotas. Compare to them Mini cooper feels solid and has great performance. It is fuel efficient, easy to park, has nice engine sound, and quality interior. Sports front seats are comfortable. .

    Pros: Love it

    Cons: None

    Mini Cooper = Love — This is my dream car!! Everytime I accelerate I feel as if I am racing someone, the engine revs up and its just amazing!! MINI has great road-side assistance and the people always have you in mind when dealing with any issues. The gas mileage is unbelievable! 32 city 40 highway. It is adorable and yet fierce at the same time, and no two MINI's are alike, sooo many custom options!! BUY ONE, YOU'LL LOVE IT!

    Pros: EVERYTHING

    Cons: NOTHING, but definitely not for large families... My dog loves it though!

    Cool And Not Cool Stuffs — Cool car very fun and pleasant to ride with, owesone road handling, powerfull engine, not a bomb but enough to enjoy everyday road drive. High quality plastics, very long list of options and accessories (-) and of course, it is absolutely not made to carry things, but it is obvious.

    Pros: Everything exept space to carry people or things

    Cons: space to carry people or things
