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.
Why didn't I do this sooner?

Even though I am 6'2", I easily fit in the Mini. Now, no one can sit behind me so basically I have a three seater. Driving a Mini is a blast. It's kind of like driving a sports car. Wait... it really is. I loved my F1 50 until I had to go to the store and park it in the parking lot or in the garage, go to the gas station, pay the monthly bill, or go slowly around corners.
Great rare find, the ultimate fun car

i would definitely recommend this car to anyone looking for something different. As you can probably guess, minis are small but they are a smooth, fun ride and you can park just about anywhere! So far I have had no problems with the convertible except that sometimes the hatch on the roof doesn't deal properly and makes a small whistling sound over 50 MPH and id also like to point out that there is a slight blind spot towards the back ends of the car while the top is up. Overall, it is a fun, zippy, easy to drive car that will definately add a little something to your life.
