I purchased mine sparkling silver with white roof and side mirrors in Sept 2007! I traded my brand new Audi 2ltr 2dr A3 coupe! I liked the Audi but I absolutley adore the Mini Cooper. It uses less fuel than a trickling summer water ban water saver sprinkler! Driving it is arouses the limbic brain ( limbic brain is the primitve centre of the brain that makes you prick up your ears whe you are half a sleep and you here a noise in the house.) It awakens all your senses- and stimulates all those driving muscles and pleasure centres! Outdrives, out handles and out-happies every other car I have ever had! It looks like a grown ups kids toy when you see it
