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.
Fantastic car to drive.

I have loved this car from the moment I drove it. It's been fun to drive and has been a solid car. Whether zooming through twisty roads or taking it out for long drives, it's comfortable and won't leave you aching. I've heard that they're not super reliable but I haven't had a bit of trouble. Proper maintenance and care will make this last a long time.
Handles very well, very enjoyable.

It handles like a dream. It is small, maneuverable yet plenty of room inside.
The dash seems a bit dated with the LED orange lights, but the overall effect of the car is how it feels solid and well-built, and it's pickup even at higher speeds. I got the automatic/wish I got the manual, but use the paddle shifters a lot for more control especially when downshifting at higher speeds. NOTE: it lunges into 2nd gear as in, say you are in a parking lot or leaving your driveway, press the gas at all at it hesitates for a moment then bursts forward. This helps when going higher speeds but I really with MC could even out that gear. Otherwise, this car fits me and I hope to have this or another similar-driving car for many years.
