2006 MINI Cooper S 2dr Convertible (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)
Loud...very loud road noise from lack of any soundproofing insulation whatsoever and those iron run-flat tires. At speeds over 30mph, be prepared to blast the radio/CD player. Windows...could the doors have been made just a little taller to fully retract the side windows? Underpowered in the automatic transmission. In urban traffic where one has to floor it to enter a lane, the darn thing goes to top rpm and dies. Overall the car needs about 50-75 additional horsepower.
Good/above average seats, leg room seated height. I'm 6'5" and have lots of room.
Sound proofing!!! I fly Army helicopters and the road noise with everything closed up, is comparable to a UH-1. Blue/green instrument backlighting, never, never, never use red! Fix the windows so they fully retract with the top of the doors.
