Fun to Drive, lots of limitations

2008 MINI Cooper 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6M)
Review
I bought this car used and I am perhaps the wrong demographic to own such a car. If it wasn't so fun to drive, I would hate it- if that makes any sense at all! Noisy on highway, base engine strains when pushed. Automatic trans is clunky on downshifts and has trouble making decisions. This car had some type of solenoid problem before I bought it and found that out later. Very finicky about fuel- Mini will almost spit out anything less than 93 octane. Carbon buildup problems exist and on such a tightly built engine, that becomes worrisome. The Mini, for me, is like someone that you just date but wouldn't marry.
Favorite Features
Handling, Visibility, Easy parking
Suggested Improvements
Base engine needs more power, Auto trans needs to be smoother and more decisive, Sunroof sticks when hot, needs more effective sunshade,
