Just thought I would point this out, the mini cooper s is actually supercharged and not turbocharged.

The bloke who wrote this review obviously hasn't got a clue what he's talking about. I've just ordered a new Cooper S and I cannot wait to get it! I took one for a test drive at the weekend and they are the nuts! As soon as I'd driven it I just new I had to have one. Great engine which is definitely not sluggish, handles like a dream, and if you get a couple of optional extras like the bigger alloys and the body kit, then it really does look great. Definitely worth getting yourself in serious debt for!

Andy from hebdon bridge needs to try and get over his jealousy - do not be so bitter man. I have made the assumption that jealousy underlies your above comments because of the delusional rubbish you spout. Anyone whos knows anything about cars regards the MCS as the definitive hothatch. In the words of evo nothing this special has been seen since the 205 gti was brought out. In the words of gezza clarkson, you really can mention this car in the same breath as the elise it is that good. Furthermore, you may wich to refer to last week's auto express in which the MCS works was declared the most exciting and fun new car after being pitted against a multitude of exotic machinery costing up to £180,000. Mate either get a life or get your facts straight.

duely correct... They do make fun of it BUT... Just think of ALL that MPG they DONT do that BMW claimed. was was it now. mmmm, estimated Combined (mpg) 33.6 - From what I've been told It doesnt even reach that.. One guy I know of claims to get around 17 MPG out of it.. Well unless of course your in you ninetys and you live like the end of the road from the supermarkets. The only thing these cars are good for is shopping with the wife and sprogs, other than that. give them to charity!

I know that it has been stated......... but realize what you are talking about before you put it on here... Mini makes fun of turbo chargers.. So why would they make one? It's super charged

Mini cooper S ?? Fast ?? Nah sorry to disappoint but it aint THAT fast. Dont get me wrong. They are nice cars to look at but I prefer my own. Clio 172. Small, fat and fast. Its heavier than the cooper S and doesnt even have the supercharger or turbo.

It would help a lot if reviewers actually knew what they were talking about! the mini cooper S is not turbocharged, so how can it have a dump valve?!
<br>
<br>AND it is NOT sluggish.. it will easily outrun any smallish hot hatch..........

Top speed 134mph and it will reach 100mph in 19.1 seconds somehow I don't think that is sluggish.
