Very Agile And Comfortable When Driving The Expressways — This car is probably one of the greatest power to weight ratios of any car I've driven. The handling and braking are great. Having the turbo really gets that car out and onto the interstate quickly.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The condition of the vehicle sold itself

Cons: No negs.

Mini Cooper S 2008 — White wheels are an absolute b**tch to keep clean. Scares me to death sometimes. Accelerates better then the old superchargd 'gen 1' Cooper s. Cheaper to run, lower Tax, better on fuel, cheaper to insure. On the whole very happy with it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheaper to run

Cons: White wheels

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
