My wife loves hers. I enjoy driving it quite a bit as well. Kind of makes me feel like a kid again. The car has plenty of power and it rides great. The cost is awesome as well.

If you have any specific questions please feel free to ask.

Here's ours, sorry it's a crappy picture.

I almost bought one instead of my Mini. They're nice looking cars, but there's one that comes through my neighborhood that's the exact color I would've gotten, and he flies through like it's the Indy 500. My neighbors would all think it's me (which has happened before).

The owners I've known of it are extremely happy.

Nice!! Another Mini Driver... What do you have? I have a 06 Cooper S in Dark Grey.

But back on subject, A girl I was dating about a year ago bought one and I thought it was a very slick car. It has a lot of nice amenities for being such an inexpensive car.
