Fun, performance and quality
July 10, 2018
I’ve got about 4K miles in 6 weeks. What I love; driver ergonomics, very bright LED headlights and fog lights, nimble steering, tight turning radius, refined and responsive motor (S model), sound of smooth transmission shifts, economy ( especially in green mode with cruise-controlled highway driving), quality of paint and interior controls, ambient lighting flexibility, everything does what it is supposed to and a very rewarding driving experience. Fun, performance and quality!
What’s not so hot; backup camera functionality is limited by the absence of a vehicle footprint and travel path, the rear center blind spot when the top is down, the upgraded HK sound system doesn’t sound all that upgraded, and while features like blind spot monitoring aren’t offered, some features available (openometer and intelligent safety system) provide minimal value.
Overall, I love my MINI and so far am very impressed with the vehicle quality and my dealer experience.
