    Great Car! — There isn't anything that I did not like about this car. The only thing I regret is not getting the bluetooth installed. I would have loved it. I receive compliments about the vehicle from friends and strangers. They love it both men and woman. They compliment the rims on the vehicle, and the choice of black on black.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Small sports car, fast, reliable, no maintenance issues. Never had to take it to the shop except for the regular oil and car check. The car is perfect for anyone.

    Cons: I had one low tire problem in the three years that I have had the car. Besides that nothing else.

    It Is All Mine! — Yes! FUN to drive. Fun to own. BMW quality. Great little chassis on this car. Small diesel gives more power than we need. Can option these cars to individual desires. Mine will suit no one else likely. So will keep it forever!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fun! Economical, Well built quality. A keeper!

    Cons: Back seat! What back seat?

    Buy It. — Performance- The performance is amazing. Because the car weighs next to nothing, the little 4 cylinder can propel this car forward at a ridiculous rate. It also handles like a go-kart, there is a reason why this car was featured the way it is in The Italian Job. Build Quality- The car is built really well. Everything feels solid and there are no wonky plastic parts. Appearance- It looks like nothing on the road and with all the customization options, you can really make your MINI a unique car. The interior takes some getting used to but after using the car for a few weeks you will be able to use the controls blindfolded. Cost of Ownership- With a great maintenance program from BMW (who owns MINI) the cost of owning a MINI only boils down to tires and fuel. Unfortunately it runs on premium so your trips to the pump may be a little pricey. But considering it gets 40+ mpg, you wont be making those trips often. Fun factor- The MINI is so much fun. Both from a performance perspective and from a social perspective. Take a test drive to see what I mean about the performance. Socially you will experience a huge network of owners from all over the US.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun, unique, high mpg, customizable, comfortable, fast.

    Cons: Backseats are small even for a little person, fitting things in the trunk can be tricky.

    Mcs — fun to drive. premium quality.. different. performance. is good for what it is. can't beat Turbo 175hp.. Appearance. wished for more kits to use. Cost of ownership. car sucks when you pay base price, but options can be expensive.. figure out what is more important then buy it. or just order the way you want it. just make sure you have the cash to do it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Gas Mileage, parking,

    Cons: back seats. why even bother..

    My Cooper — Even though the appearance isn't everything, it's acceleration is. I was surprised how easy it beats most cars I meet on the road/at traffic lights. Contrary to my previous car, Peugeot 206, this one easy hits 140km/h on the freeway, only pushing you to go faster.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Acceleration, handling

    Cons: appearance

    The Best Of Choice That I've Ever Made. — Definitely fun to drive. Quick and nimble. Handles well and just enough power/torque. As for appearance, I still like the previous model with slight British look but the new holds its own. Feels truly like a go car with the top down.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Always fun to drive.

    Cons: Small.

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

    I Love This Car. It Is Fun To Drive, Well Made, And Safe. For A Personal Car, What Else Can You Ask? — This is a FUN car. Fit and finish is excellent, spunky with the performance of a sports car. It handles like a go-kart. In less than 1000 miles we have enjoyed over 24 hours of topdown fun !!! I insisted on the S with manual transmission. Otherwise it could be slightly sluggish.

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

    Pros: A bundle of fun and peformance. Fit and Finish is incredible.

    Cons: can't think of any

    More Fun Than The Typical Commuter — Still on it's way...ordered it in June and should have it the 2nd week of August. 35+ mpg for my 90+ miles per day will be nice. The Jag is comfortable and powerful but too big for a commuter.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Light

    Cons: Power

    Mini Cooper S Jcw — Very impressive car, with great performance, ride quality, comfort, and looks to kill! The turbo is quite noticable when it kicks in, and with 210bhp it can definetly drag off a Subaru WRX at the lights! They are on the more expensive side of the Mini range, but well worth it if you love hot hatches!

    Pros: Everything!

    Cons: N/A
