2007 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I did a lot of homework on this car, selected what I wanted and have no regrets. The weather outside is not an issue with this car. (and this Chicago winter has been nonstop). Be sure to get the heated seats!) Mileage is good, handling is superb, and very precise. I have the upgraded radio and have rear dimming mirror, which are a must. xenon headlights are perfect for night driving. since you are going to purchase this car, go for the color and interiors that make you happy. Keep it clean, and it will remain looking brand new. Have had no problems for the 6 mos. I've owned it, just lots of onlookers, smiles, waves, and questions from curious people and other Mini drivers. Go for it!
