I love this car
I have always looked at the coopers but finally got pulled in by this one and I can't imagine ever owning anything else.
2008 mini convertible
My Mini as a color called sparkling silver, but its really a champagne color. It handles well and gets food mileage. There's plenty of room in the front seats, back is just tolerable. Very little space in the boot. The main attraction of a Mini is its beautiful styling; also it takes up little space in the garage, and you can hand-wash it in about five minutes. My interior is called english malt leather, which only came with the Sidewalk option; quite pricey and has been discontinued. It also has many luxuries, such as seat warmers, lots of chrome on the dash. The ragtop has two open positions, push the button once and its a sunroof, twice for all the way down. Negatives: visibility is very poor in the convertible models. The controls, and everything about a Mini is NON-intuitive. I have to consult the manual for everything, keep it handy, you'll need it. I have been driving Japanese cars for decades, and the Mini takes some getting used to. Also, the run-flat tires wear out too soon and there is no spare tire. Converting to standard tires is very expensive, but I will probably do that someday. I have had no mechanical problems yet. I cannot attest to the longevity of a Mini yet; time will tell. A big concern is the lack of dealerships unless you live in a big city. The nearest one to me is 100 miles. Minis are expensive, but they seem to retain fair resale value. I wish they were engineered simpler; there are way more gadgets than I would like. Even the heater/ac is complicated. But mine is very beautiful to look upon, and so far, no copycats. It is what it is....you'll either love it or not. I hope this has been helpful to anyone about to purchase a Mini convertible. btw, the CVT transmission works fine, but I never use the paddle shifters on the steering column. I wish they weren't there. Just another gadget. Good luck with your decision.
Really fun car!
My wife and I were looking for a replacement for an older car that certainly gave us our money's worth. We looked at several types of cars, SUVs, etc., but ended up purchasing the MINI Cooper Clubman S. Small car? Yes. But it actually seems to have more room than my old Honda Civic. It sits higher off the ground than the old car. Fun to drive? YES! We have never driven a car that is this much fun!
