Picked up the new 2011 MC S (Premium Package and Sports Package) recently. Coming from a background of muscle cars and SUVs, I love the change of pace from the Mini Cooper S. The car is so much fun to drive. I might just get one all for myself. The MCS is a driver's dream. Now go get one.

I have had my Spice Orange MINI Cooper S for four months now. I have put on over 7000 miles. For the same 7000 miles I have not been able to stop grinning. This car is very fun to drive, goes fast, gets there fast, gets great gas mileage, and everything else I look for in a car. I would recommend the MINI Cooper S 100%. If you need to carry four people, then not so much. For one or two, it cant be beat.

I have a 100 mile (round trip) commute to work and I purchased my Mini-Cooper S a few months ago because I was looking for a vehicle that would offer better mileage. My Mini Cooper S has performed as advertised giving me 33 MPG. It is also the most fun that I've had and is a car that begs to be driven. It's ride is smooth and sporty and has quick acceleration and hugs curves with precision. Don't let it's size fool you, I am a big man (6'3' and 285lbs) and have more head and leg room then in the SUV I drove before purchasing the Mini. My daughter is looking for her first car and I would feel safe for her it she is able to find a Mini of her own.

GREAT CAR It is a great car, the hill hold with the manual transmission is great, I did get with out heated seats and wish that was in it but it is great. Be careful about the run flat tires when you get them changed ask if the tire store has a specific machine other wise they can tear u the inside of the rim.

Dream MINI S Convertible

I've owned a number of ragtops over the years and recently replaced my 2005 MINI S convertible (bright yellow with black interior) with a 2011 (british racing green with hot chocolate interior). The style updates are great and I like the changes to the instrumentation. I delayed this purchase thinking that I would like the old supercharged engine better than the current turbo model but could not have been more wrong. The MINI is noticiably quicker and I'm getting better gas mileage to boot!

Needed a 3rd car for getting to and from work. This cooper s convertible has been amazing. Has the charm of an old MG but the convenience technology and interior design of a BMW. Highly recommend S model as well as the manual transmission. Not very practical but as a 3rd car it is incredibly Fun reliable and at the price I got it - a value.
