Mini One - I have 7!

Advantagesfunky styling, pointy, rock solid grip

Disadvantagesdull and uninspiring handling, rough engines, crap ride, not practical

"We acquired seven Mini Ones for staff of our development company to use as company vehicles and for advertising - they are covered in stickers! I run one of the seven as my own company car having covered 36,000 miles in thirteen months. When we went in search of staff cars, we were originally looking for a cheap option. We considered Nissan Almera, VW polo, and Vauxhall Corsa. We went for the minis because of the eye catching styling. For this ..." Read review

The best things come in small(ish) packages Review with images

AdvantagesFun; Styling; Handling; Practicality

DisadvantagesCost of car and extras

"...This is an 05 plate Mini One, in Chili Red. We added a few options to the basic spec: manual air-conditioning; chrome lining on the exterior and interior; the 'storage' pack (whoever heard of a glovebox being an optional extra?); and, in a capricious moment of vanity, removal of the 'One' badge. All in it came to £11,300. We had gone for this car for the simple reason that we wanted something 'fun'. Both of us being 'professionals' we found ourselves ..." Read review

The new BMW Mini EXCLUSIVE

AdvantagesPhysical improvements on the old mini

DisadvantagesNeeds to live up to an icon and legend

"...to preview the new BMW Mini which has the tall order to live up to and build on the reputation of the old Rover Mini. One big difference is the new owner of the brand is German, though they keep it very low key, and there is infact no official BMW badge on the car. I did spot the words BMW moulded onto the petrol cap but that's hidden from view anyway behind a flap. The intention is to sell these cars as Mini very distinctly from the rest of ..." Read review

The Germans have done it again

Advantagesnippy smart and stylish

Disadvantagescost

"...have taken the old rover mini and made it better. The Germans have had a knack of doing this over the years and they have done it again. To do this they had a job. They had to keep the foibles and quirks that made the old mini so lovable. They had to inject modern styling and performance with the handling to match. They had to make it safe on today’s roads and frugal enough to pass tomorrow’s emission tests. They had to do all this at an affordable ..." Read review

A Convertable mini one that looks like a cooperS.

AdvantagesCool (Less is more)

DisadvantagesCurb damage on the wheels

"...wife and I bought our mini one convertible in June05. When we purchased it we liked the look of the mini cooper S convertible but couldn't quite come to terms with parting with all that cash so we opted for the cheapest option. We ordered a red mini one convertible with 17" S alloys, pepper pack, cd player and sports seats with black fabric. Oh, we also asked that the one badge be removed from the boot of the car. When it arrived we were so pleased ..." Read review

Mini One a fun car to drive

AdvantagesSolid, fun to drive high quality small car

DisadvantagesHeavy on fuel, not alot of leg room in the back

"We bought a Mini One in 2005 for my wife as a second car. We bought it on the lease purchase scheme that they ran at the time. It works by paying a deposit, we paid £2500 then for 3 years it was £199 a month with a final payment of about £5000 after the 3 years or you can trade it in for a new one and continue the monthly payments. We paid the final installement. Anyway enough about the boring finance, whats the car actually like? Its great it ..." Read review

Its bigger than you think.

AdvantagesThe new car to be seen in

DisadvantagesA car not to be seen in if you are a man with standards

"...dealer to test drive the Mini one. ( The other car was going to be a Fiesta now there is no comparison here) The sales person could not have been any nicer. It was her first day and tried to answer all our questions as well as she could until the gentleman was available. Eventually we go to take it for a test drive with the fascination of mini's I thought that he would let me test drive it but no he had to have a go and well needless to say we ..." Read review

Desperately seeking New MINI...

AdvantagesFunky, fun and friendly

DisadvantagesMy mouth hurts from smiling at all of the MINI drivers who wave at me

"...me (having finally read the MINI owner’s manual) that I was now part of the MINI owners club, not being somebody who is used to waving at complete strangers I picked it up surprisingly quickly. I absolutely love my new MINI!!! My last car was a new Ford KA Luxury with leather seats, air conditioning, alloys, etc and at £8,500 was brilliant value for money and I thought it was fantastic – that is until I had my first taste of the new MINI at ..."

Living with a Mini One

AdvantagesHandling, Fun Factor Quality

DisadvantagesInternal Space for the cars external dimensions. Cost of Spares

"Our Mini One has been in the family now for 3 plus years so we do know about this car. I admit that I fell in love with the car and although I would really have loved a Cooper, practical considerations (learner driver) dictated the One. It is a fun little car to drive that exudes quality of build and really makes your 'feel good'. I always like hoping in the Mini to nip to the shops or for the long commute - I regularly did the Lake District to ..." Read review

My MINI!

AdvantagesUnique, fun, Good Looking, Community

DisadvantagesExpensive

"We have had a MINI in the family since early 2004 and when it came to buying my first car I knew what my choice would be! So late 2005 my MINI arrived. Since then car has been fine apart from a few rattles and issues with clutch which BMW eventually replaced under warranty. BMW service sometimes leaves a lot to be desired, but if you find a good dealership stick with them! Also being my first car the price of insurance played a part in ..." Read review

sexiest topless car on the market!!

AdvantagesFun, noticeable, fun, v good fuel economy, did I say fun?

DisadvantagesNot good for familys, not much boot space

"I finally got my wee mini convertible 18 months ago, then promptly left the country fot 8 months and had to leave it with a friend. Getting it back was not easy!! My friend did not want to part with it, understandably. What can I say about this car? - Its great to drive, a tyre at each corner means that it handles like a go cart - hugging all the corners. Its size means that it is easy to park in the town, very few spaces are too small. - ..." Read review

I love MINI adventures

Advantagescute, good to drive

Disadvantagessmall, uneconomical

"...tree thing. Not good times. The mini is a very hard, 'sporty' ride which is not very confortable over long journeys and my grandparents are not very confortable in the car. The car also is not very spacious. I mean it is kind of explained by the name of the car but for any passengers in the back, there really is not a lot of legroom. (unless you sit behind me, but I have little legs) The car is pretty big spacewise and we have managed to really cram ..." Read review

MINI ME YOU COMPLETE ME

AdvantagesYEEEE FACTOR

DisadvantagesCOSTLY EXTRAS

"...on with the real review... The Mini is a simply stunning car, with great personality (if such a thing is imaginable in a car). It accelerates well and nips round corners with ease due to its Go-Kart-esque handling. The quirky design features cannot hide the sheer class brought to the car from the wonderful people at BMW. The interior feels solid and well built as we would expect but also is deisgned with style in mind. The speedometer is situated ..." Read review

Quick review of MINI One

"Great car! I have had one for four years now and it has never let me down to this day! Looks small from te outside but is actually not inside with lot of head room! They hardy use any fuel i have to fill up onc every two weeks and i use my car at least once a day. The new version has adevice fitted which means road tax is decresed dramatically, therefore total running costs will be lowe than average. The only prolem which i have found is that the boot is extremly small. This can be overcome though if not traevelling with a full car as the back seats fold down. The best car i have ever had an i would suggest this car to anyone living in the town!

BMW Mini One

Advantagesnippy, handles beautifully, great for mini adventures lol

Disadvantagesparts are expensive to replace

"...earned cash and bought a Mini Cherished 52 plate Mini One in Chili red from Halliwell Jones BMW in Warrington. The car drives like a dream and to coin a phrase "corners like its on rails" lol. Its nippy and reasonably economical fuel wise for its engine size. Its a small car on the outside and deceivingly spacious on the inside. The aftersales service from Halliwell Jones has also been A*, with it being a Cherished Mini I received a further 12 months ..." Read review
