Great, fun car...like driving a go kart!

This was our extra car, I mostly drove it on the weekends, but I also loved driving it in city traffic. It has an amazing amount of space for a tall (6' 4") person like me. With its 6 speed manual transmission and supercharger, it was a lot of fun to drive.

I have enjoyed the car very much. great gas mileage with a supercharger, for a daily driver to and from I have enjoyed it very much, It handles like a house fly, which has saved me from a few stick situations on the street. if the handling isnt good enough just hit the brakes( you can't stop faster even if you hit a tree) only issue that I have had is that it is like owning a two seater car, even though there is a back seat. R53 mini cooper's can have there fair share of issues so find one that has had all the maintenance done and it will save you a fair bit of heart ache.
