2007 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
i've had my 2007 Mini Cooper S, Lazer Blue with Black roof and bonnet stripes. premium, sport and cold weather package, LSD, bluetooth and nav for about 3 weeks. Yeah that stuff adds a wee bit of weight but this car is by far the best car I have ever owned! I have a manual transmission and the throws are typical BMW throw length. Best fuel economy ever! I average 33.2mpg currently at 2240 miles. The ride could be rough for some, but I'm a sporty guy so it's perfect for highway passing and back roads. Trunk is small but perfect for if it's just two
Fuel economy, sport button, nav system is amazing and acurate (well worth the $2100) out slalom a Porsche, kick WRXs sideways, and own by far the most unique car on the market next to the Fiat 500 (which isn't avalible here in the us so MINI wins here ;) ) LSD gets rid of torque steer, trust me
If you have the money, upgrade to the WiFi sound system like I did, the stock system is only OK
