2005 MINI Cooper S 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl S/C 6M)


The car is so much fun to drive it's addictive. It corners smoothly and accelerates well. The front seats aren't the most comfortable but are very adjustable. The biggest problem I have had is with the new gas containing ethanol. Seems the gas companies add more than the 10% they say they do and the Mini runs lousy because of it. At least that is what the dealer says. Oh yeah, and now the CD player died.

Best Features

Awesome handling, fun power, fun, fun, fun.

Worst Features

Need to do something to allow the car to run on today's fuel. Some remapping of the ecu or something to make it run properly is needed. As it is now I'm ready to get rid of it.
