Overall, I intend to keep my mini as long as possible. We have put a bigger engine in it and can go faster than 100mph easily. Its like having your very own little rocket on four wheels. I would definitely recommend a mini to anyone who enjoys driving and looking after their cars… Read Full Review

I sold my perfectly practical Fiesta to buys my little Mini. Was really fun for about a week! Then the electrics went wrong. 2 weeks later it failed its MOT on broken subframe mounts. Then the water pump broke. I have just got the main and needle jet in the carburettor done and now the clutch has gone!! Those are the bad points. The good points are when it does actually work perfectly it is the best car in the world I can't imagine being without it. It also is really nice to have other Mini… Read Full Review

I got my Mini when I was 16 as a running project, it was great, it handled like a dream, it wasn't so fast that I would get any points, (can be sorted if you got the money).
Just remember, these cars are old and prone to rust, they need a lot of TLC to keep them running, so keep on top of the work and don't let that rust take over, otherwise you have to take it to the scrap yard! :-(. The 998's arnt that fast, but join the clubs and read that mags and save your pennies and it could be a… Read Full Review

Where to start?! The Mini really is the greatest car ever made. Cheap, goes round corners like nothing else, cool, for its size you can get a lot in it, pretty economical (although i'll come to that in a sec!) cheap insurance, easy to improve (usually because they're falling apart!), easy to tune, more fun than anything else out there!
BUT.... They're hopelessly unreliable. If something can break, it will! Often this is due to neglect, or the lucas electrics that look like they were designed… Read Full Review

Right... where do I start.
Firstly, if you're gong to buy one don't spend less than 500 quid.
They're incredibly easy to work on.
The clutch is hydraulic so most clutch problems are in the hydraulic system, you can unbolt components individually, clean them in the sink or replace them for cheap money.
The engine will carry on regardless no matter how knackered it is. Mine went fine on no water, no oil and no head gasket, and a knackered head!
When I did replace the head and gasket it was easy… Read Full Review
