2013 MINI Cooper Roadster John Cooper Works 2dr Convertible (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
with over 1200 miles on it, I have yet to stop grinning. Everywhere I go I get thumbs up, and such comments as : nice car, beautiful ride, Mommy I want that car, Etc.
Fast and economical ( Just got 38 MPG from New Jersey to New Hampshire, at 75-85 MPH). A surprisingly large trunk for such a small car. Even my skis fit, using the trunk pass through.
Only complaint: single layer top, noisy at highway speeds. Small price to pay for such fun.
Much nicer than a Miata or a Honda S2000, or a BMW Z4. Tons of amenities. Super radio and navigation. BUY IT
The engine, the sound, the looks, the driving feel, the gas economy, the tons of amenities and gadgets, the looks I get, the satisfaction in owning one ( I had 2 BMWs, 3 Audis, 1 Porsche and 1 Corvette)
Improve the quality of the canvas top. Install an automatic garage door opener.
