2009 Mini CooperBilly Boyer - Chesapeake, VA07/01/2016
Most fun car I have owned to date. I also own a 1986 BMW 325 with a 2.7 stroker motor and 2000 328Ci and it blows both of them out of the water. The turbo provides a fantastic amount of power to the front wheels. I didn't anticipate liking fwd but with the limited slip differential my car has it really pulls through turns. 180 hp and 180 tq in a small hatchback is loads of fun. 6 speed transmission. Very economical on gas, averaging 35 mpg. I'm 6'1" and there is still extra headroom.
A must own, but VERY expensive out of warranty

Yes but only if you can buy extended warranty. With the seats down, I've loaded a large Costco shopping cart woth of itmes! Great manual transmission. Comfortable seats and great heat/air conditioing. Top goes up/down quickly and keeps out elements very well.
BMW quality at a fraction of the price
Good gas mileage
More fun than one should legally have with cloths on
Handling, breaking and mechanical feel is top notch
BMW cost for all repairs: $180 oil change, $800 break job, etc
Must use Premium gas, so this off-sets gas savings
Base sound system is the worst sounding of any car i've owned; get harmon kardon system as aftermarket is hard to install and expensive
Rear visibility poor
Fair resale value
Great small but reliable and cool car

- Saves a lot of gas (I drive aprox 45 miles pr day so that makes me very happy)
- Agile car to drive in traffic
- feels solid and stable (You feel safe in case of a collision)
- Expensive maintenance (If you need to make a repairment it will be costly) In my case it was worthy...
