FANTASTIC MACHINE !!!!
Some minor rattles, squeeks. Fender trim moves around a bit. Head light bug. But it is man made, and every car has a flaw here and there.
Mini Cooper S:
I've never really owned a car that was worth dedicating words to;
but growing up on the lesser side of a wealthy family, and being a risk taker,
could not resist sneaking one of my uncles babies out when not a creature
was stirring. Mercedes, Porsche, Ferrari; if but only for 3 hours at a time,
I have tasted ..driving joy.
My personal string of mundane machines never touched me like uncle's
toys. Then I bought a MCS. Now, I won't kid you, and exotic it is not,
I can however, say with some stolen authority, it is the closest the man of average means
can/should get. I lack the energy at 3:19am to elaborate, but the MCS is a solid
machine, at, well, a reasonable price. Sure, every car has a few issues, as
will everything man creates; but in a year of ownership, the strengths of the
MINI outweigh its idiosyncrasies 500 to 1. If the cars characteristics fit
into your life .Definitely, BUY ONE!!
