2007 MINI Cooper Long Term Road Test

2007 Mini Cooper S: Fun Fun Fun. And More Fun.

April 03, 2008

Mini fun.

If I could just write that for my blog and not get into trouble, I would. But seriously, it's the most concise and true explanation of the Mini.

Usually my choice for cars to drive is based the fact that a smaller car is better on the crowded streets for parking...

Our the Mini is the best choice. It's not a compromise to be able to fit into the tight parking spots available to me at night, the thing is an absolute blast to drive.

If you're not holding onto the steering wheel with both hands when you accelerate hard, it's like a wild horse trying to get away from you. You can blip shift pretty easily and it's got a great growl for such a small engine. Not only that but the handling is tight and you can corner reasonable hard.

"Yeah but..."

Save the reasons why not to like it, pal. If you don't get a kick out of driving the Mini 'round, you better check your pulse.
