Cute, good looks/styling. Must-have 17 inch S-spoke wheels. Great acceleration and cornering. Surprisingly roomy (in front). Great on motorway and fun around town. Overall a really useful car.
Interior rattles - particularly from dash - ruin what in every other respect feels like a firm, well-built car.
"My other car is a Lotus" - as they say. An Elan S2 to be precise. And while I didn't expect the Mini to match the fun of driving that, I have to say I've been in the Cooper S every day since I bought it. It's very easy to live with - but still fun to drive. And even though there are thousands of them on the roads, there are zillions of accessories and options to ensure you can still have a pretty unique vehicle - or at least one that suits you down to the ground. The ONLY thing that lets it down is the very cheap sounding rattly dash.
