2008 MINI Cooper SReview

Overall:

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

Purdey S. Lightning Blue — I was looking for a convertible sports car that seats four. That moves. How many are there on the market? If you ignore things like the ugly Mustang convertible and unreasonable things like an M3 convertible, what's left? There really was no alternative if you like small, agile cars. BTW, I have the S Convertible JCW.

Pros: Moves, darts, and basically flies

Cons: ~21mpg, second class suspension

A Comfortable, Low-mileage, Super Driving Car With Great Tradition. — Great small car with big fun! It's a go cart that you can drive on the street while getting great mileage from the mid 30's to the mid 40's. Its BMW technology and Austin-Cooper tradition makes it great for a "car guy" like me. It also has great looks and to be so small it has space for the large driver and passenger with a back seat for the smaller people. If you need to carry a lot--buy a truck.

Pros: Great warranty and service -- if you ever need it.

Cons: guys in big trucks have problems with small things

Mini Review — Well my car is awesome, fast enough for me, the blowoff is loud as hell, exhaust sounds goo, stero is bumpin. The only real things that suck is its small, and you cant put an after market head unit in it.

Pros: Speed, Fun

Cons: Factory Stero

Mini Cooper S — I love it!!!!! Torque of this car has in a wide range from 1800-5500 rpm. So, when you step the gas, it'll give you full of power. Moreover, for the car size compare to the engine, it provides a huge power that your back can stick to seat. And everyone know that it's MINI !!!!!

Pros: Performance, Appearance, Fun Factor

Cons: Size
