    Mini Cooper S Mayfair Edition — I LOVE LoVE LoVE my Mini Cooper! No major dislikes. The only thing I wish for is that there were more places that service the vehicles. I had it serviced and it took me a week to get it back.

    Pros: Small and compact. Low fuel cost

    Cons: Small back seat

    Fun Mountain Car — No surprise that this is more of a toy than a functional daily driver. For tearing through mountain switchbacks it is amazing though. Handles like a go cart and (with the turbo) always has plenty of power on tap. Not the most reliable car to be honest but for Saturday drives it is hard to beat for the money.

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

    Pros: Handling, power, fuel economy. Always greeted with a smile when you pull up.

    Cons: Reliability and city street ride quality.

    2nd Mini So Far! Great Fun Loving Cars. — Keeps me awake on commute. Good little cars that make you grin. First one had auto trannie still not boring to drive. Manual is really more fun and gets better mileage with premium fuel (recommended). We live in a pretty high fuel zone.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Economy. Manual xmissn. Feels like a genuine sportscar.

    Cons: Nothing sucks! No dealer within 50 miles so local shop does service. Mini doesnt like that too much but our guy does very good at fixing. Dealers only replace - don't fix.

    The Mini Is Awesome!! — The MINI is not for everyone, but if you get the chance to drive one, don't miss the opportunity. They are great for tooling around town, but when you put it in sport mode - you better be holding on to the steering wheel.

    Pros: Great gas mileage; fun to drive!

    Cons: Not much room for my 3 dogs

    Fun, Sporty, Zippy, Stylish, Sexy Cool. — Everyone compliments what a cool car it is and that they want one. The interior sound system is for audiophiles who can appreciate professional quality equipment. Gas mileage is very good and this is the perfect commuter for short and long trip. Can literally park anywhere due to its small size.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Excellent commuter. 34 mpg highway. Custom 1300 watt stereo sounds incredible. Good for long drives 4hrs+.

    Cons: Very little storage space.

    It Is Very Fun To Drive — Great car with all what you expect from BMW manufacture. Stick shift add to the power of the car and the sporty feel. Great MPG that you will never find in any other sport car. It is spacy in the front seat so do not underestimate it is ability to accomodate tall drivers.

    Pros: Gas millage, look, handling

    Cons: Two doors

    Love It!! — My mini feels much larger inside than anticipated and has great "get-up-and-go." Tons of fun to drive, especially on long road trips. Economical gas mileage is expected in a small car, but usually not in cars that are this fun to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: style, handling, turbo, gas mileage

    Cons: small trunk/back seat

    Drving Has Never Been This Fun! — Even though it is 4-person vehicle, only very small people and animals can reasonable sit in the back seats if the driver/front passenger are tall. Shorter people up front allow for backseat passengers. However, 1-2 people will always love driving and riding in this car. Would not suggest test-driving this prior to driving a MINI Base, because once you experience the power/speed of the S, it's tough to want anything else.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: So much fun to drive!  The turbo engine with Sport Package makes it extremely peppy.
    Every time I look in my garage, I smile - cutest looking vehicle I have ever seen.  But does not look "girly" - very sporty. .
    I rate Maintenance Cost at 5 starts because of the incredible maintenance package active on the care up to 100,000 miles - I pay nothing for the major, normally high-dollar maintenance services at the MINI dealership.
    Great shifting. Sound system is nice. Amazing handling. Breaks are sensitive enough to make you feel safe without jerking driver/passengers.

    Cons: Without all-season tires, it does not handle very well on snow/ice. Just fine with anything but performance tires. That is the only negative thing I have to say about it, but is easily fixable.

    The Most Fun For The Money! — A blast to drive! When you own a MINI, you can't wait for the next curve. A lot of power in this JCW, the car feels very quick especially with the extra boost (sport mode). The other major improvement of the JCW over the regular Cooper S is the breaks, they are very powerful. Superb handling, great engine and breaking power....a little go kart just like we want a MINI to be.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: I'm still searching
