Okay. So you take a normal mini. 10 foot long. Then you think, "What do I need all that space for?" So you lob out the front seats, pick up yer angle grinder and chop it in half. A few times. And get rid of the roof (What dya need one of those for in England?) So now you've got 4 bits ... Read review

Shortened Mini

AdvantagesYou can park anywhere! You get a suntan in a traffic jam. The obligatory smile..

DisadvantagesYou have to be made of rubber to get into the car when the roofs up.

Throw away the middle bit and the roof, and weld the other two bits together and you get an 8 foot long death trap! So a bit of strengthening.. few box sections ..." Read review

40 years in the making and well worth the wait

AdvantagesFantastic handling, very smooth ride and stylish looks

DisadvantagesNot as fast as the ol-style Mini Cooper, and the centre mounting speedometre is slightly off-putting at first

"...- maybe the sale of Rover to BMW was not such a bad thing, this baby drives like a dream. The BMW gearbox is very smooth, while still retaining a solid feel so as not to be too slick for its own good. The handling is superb, power steering is a god-sent and the responsiveness is very good. It is still weird to be actually driving a MINI and having such a smooth ride, due mainly to the sports suspension and 15 inch alloy wheels, but the fun of driving ..." Read review

The Mighty Mini

AdvantagesLooks good, handles well, cheap to run and very fuel efficient

DisadvantagesCan be prone to rusting, not good in extreme rain

"Introduction The classic mini is a car loved by millions. Small and light, cheap to run, with timeless lines, those who drive them always seem to develop a soft spot for them. Having been built the same (or very similar) for over 40 years, a new version which is notably different is being produced by Rover. Opinion I love my mini. Its great fun to drive, and a whole lot more interesting than a micra. Parts are cheap, insurance is cheap, and ..." Read review

Greatest car on the planet

AdvantagesFun, cheap to run, quick

DisadvantagesGTi drivers want to race you

"...face. Just go to your rover dealer and try one, you will want to buy one before the plug's pulled in September. They just skate round corners however fast you go, and will keep up with most 'warm hatches' on the straights. With the last of the line being produced at the moment, they are excellent value - under £10,000 including full leather interior and a silver roof! Servicing's cheap, everything's cheap. I've had my Mini for over 4 years and ..." Read review

The Rover Mini -side walk-

AdvantagesSo much fun to drive

DisadvantagesCan be susceptible to rust in places

"Even though mine does not have that big an engine (1.2), it has excellent acceleration, as it is so small and light. You can turn on a penny due to the short wheelbase. It drives like a go-kart, so it is so much fun to drive, as it has stiff suspension, and a large upright steering wheel. Inside it is simple, with two dials, the speedo on the left and the stats on the right (Fuel, temp etc). There are however some problems with the mini: A problem ..." Read review
