Nippy little car, a weapon round the corners.
Not enough space.
I've owned my Mini Cooper for nearly a year and it holds the corners really well, apart from the slight oversteer and the lack of exit speed that can be gained, the biggest most annoying thing is the windscreen, it sits far to vertical and the flies stick to it like glue, nearly everyday the windscreen needs a good rub down when I get home from work. It's nippy from 1st to 3rd gear and when in 5th it feels like theres still another gear to go. The rev counter 2 inches behind the steering wheel and I'm constantly having to bob my head down to look at my rpm, the car is really small i had great difficulty getting my cousins child seat in and when it was eventually fitted my auntie's seat had to be right forward with her head against the windscreen I think I'm just being a bit picky overall there are more pro's than con's after all how many standard 1.6 16v go 138mph with another 500rpm to go :) really fun to drive and I'd recommend it to anyone without young children.
