Loved my first Mini Cooper S and wanted the same thing but a bit bigger with 4 doors. They started making a 4 door original Mini in 2015 so I was holding out on trading until that model came up. It was worth the wait. It's a bit longer and a bit wider with a very economical "green mode" for better mileage although "sport mode" is still a fun option.
A street-legal go-kart ... the most fun car ever
2006 Mini CooperGary Chiasson - Nashville, TN08/08/2016
Fun factor is off the charts. I bought this car for my wife, who commutes to a part-time job. We already have two other vehicles, so practicality wasn't a concern. She decided she wanted a small convertible and after reading a lot of reviews, this is what we chose. We've had it four months now with no issues. I understand maintenance can be costly on these, but we haven't had a single issue. It gets decent mileage (it would get great mileage but it's so much fun to step on the gas in this thing), it's comfortable, and it is the most fun car I've ever driven, hands down. It has surprising room for the driver and passenger, but the backseat is only good for two mid-size passengers and even then, only for short distances.
Fantastic car to drive.
2011 Mini CooperJim McLain - Windcrest, TX05/18/2015
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.
