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

AdvantagesPerformance; Running Costs; Looks (for some)

DisadvantagesUbiquity; Looks (for some); Interior isn't as nice as the previous model

"The BMW Mini is something of a 'love it, hate it' car. People seem to be put off because you see them everywhere, and they appear to have become somewhat de rigeur for estate agents and the like. Personally I love them, and when we decided to replace our 4 year old Mini One it was a fruitless search to find something for around the same price that we thought would offer quite the same fun. We were looking to upgrade really. The Cooper S was what ..." Read review

My '52 Reg Mini Cooper S Experience

AdvantagesStyling, Street Cred, Handling, performance, 0-60mph, Motorway cruising surprinsingly good

DisadvantagesFuel Consumption, Maintenance/Running Costs, Harsh suspension, Back seat space, Boot Size

"...I'm one of the biggest Mini fans out there. I've owned 4 Mini's in my time. 3 old Classics including a lovely R reg Cooper, and the car reviewed below. I have grown up reading Mini books, attending mini shows, have Mini t-shirts. I am a PROPER Mini Fan, so for me to write the pro's and con's of a Mini is a hard thing for me to do so trust these are honest words! I've owned my '52 Reg Mini Cooper S (Chilli Pack) for 18months now. When I purchased, ..." Read review

Cooper S What fun

AdvantagesFast, Fun

DisadvantagesBumpy ride

"...much larger than the old mini and the build quality is fabulous. The S is much more fun than the straight cooper and if you like to go fast then this is the car for you. It still retains all the character and fun of the old mini and commands a nod from other mini owners. If you want fun this is the car for you. The Mini cooper S has sports suspension plus which can make for a bouncy ride to be honest, but hey that really is reminiscent of the old ..." Read review

Special review Mini Cooper S Works GP model

AdvantagesFeels so special, luxurious front seats, fast, very very fast, bespoke alloys

DisadvantagesEats front tyres, no rear wiper, no Xenon headlights & thermostat has failed twice!

"Have owned the special Mini Cooper S Works GP model for over 3 years now and have to say it's one of the best cars I've ever had. BMW only made 2000 of these back in 2006 and only around 444 came to the UK, so they are quite rare. It is only a two seater as the back incorporates a roll bar to save weight so it is not a family car at all, if ever the Mini was. Only available in thunder blue (a sort of blue/grey metallic), it has chilli red wing ..." Read review

Great but too much Weight, The Mini Cooper S

AdvantagesQuick, Precise steering, Great Driving Experience. Great Bargains available for 2nd hand purchase

DisadvantagesHeavy, Average Traction Control.

"...with precise german engineering, the Mini Cooper S, in my opinion is one of the most loved Hatcbacks in the world. With heavy, but precise steering to accuratly take on even the tightest corner and a heavy clutch/gearbox which gives the feel of being in a little racer. I myself have driven and owned a large number of cars including Aston Martins Lotus Elises and Lambourghini's. The Cooper S is comfortably in my top 10 cars I've ever driven. Every ..." Read review
