2008 MINI Cooper SReview

Jill's First Mini Cooper S — My Mini is awesome! I bought it cold-turkey before our move to CA. No, it does not have everything I wan ted in a Mini (sunroon, more chrome etc..) but the performance outshines all that. My supercharged Mini has gotten me out of many a tight spot and its handling is superb-just like I was forewarned by other Mini owners. Brakes are extremely touchy-be careful! feel like a much bigger car inside-at least in the front.

Pros: Acceleration OMG!!, handling, braking, more room than u would expect....

Cons: Sunroof would have been nice, don't like the "fake leather"-too hot..

My Mini Cooper — i love my mini cooper it is convertible . it works good. it is a little fast. no one would resist not to drive it i think. it is a good car. i can sell it for a high price because i upgrade it with nitrous and it runs very fast.

Pros: fast with nitrous

Cons: gas goes away fast and nitrous is expensive

Sweet Ride — Looks nice and very nice to drive. Good mileage and maintenance...feels like your driving a go kart. The interior is nice but the exterior is even better. The only two negative things about the mini I would say are the price and also the amount of trunk space that it has

Pros: everything except price

Cons: price

Mini- Greatest Car Ever. — This makes my second MINI. My last one was a 2003 Cooper S... I was hesitant at first about going to a turbo as opposed to a supercharger. BUT... It's great, there's no comparison between the two. Better fuel economy, little more room... it's GREAT. I plan on getting a few upgrades to it, as soon as I'm finished shopping for them all.

Pros: Great gas mileage, modern yet nostalgic look, EXCELLENT performance

Cons: A few blind spots

Back To A Mini — CooperS. It's the best car ever. Our old one was supercharged, my new one is turbocharged. Went with an automatic this time due to Phoenix traffic. Sport package though, so I do have the paddle shifters. Drives like a rocket. I'll say it again, it's the best car ever. EVER!!

Pros: Fits in small spaces.  

Cons: Don't know of any...

The Original Mini Was Better. — Sucks to drive, tacky, hard to see out of with the top up, and very noisy inside. Also the folding roof severely reduces rear passenger and rear trunk space. Very expensive for what you get.

Pros: Looks "Retro"

Cons: Looks "Retro", tacky interior styling, bad handling, mediocre performance, horrible rear
visibility, bad mileage, very noise interior

Pros: Fun

Cons: i can't afford two of them

Gr8t Fun Machine — It's Mini, with maxi performance. Good handling, and with the S you can go and have fun. With me being tall, I'm surprised how well I actually fit into this bundle of fun (just don't sit behind me)

Pros: Its a fun machine!

Cons: Umm, nope. None that I can think to list

We bought a 2017 Mini Cooper S. We needed to find a smaller light weight coupe to pull behind a class B RV. Price, size, power, equipment of the S model is we think? A good fit! Read More
