Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

  • Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    Im fun, open and a little bit cheeky!

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Everyone loves it except my sister, because it messes up her hair. But I fixed that with a wind deflector - so all happy!

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes and No. Yes - because I love it to bits, its so fun to drive and really turns heads. No - The roof broke and has been a financial burden since, being 19 years old I can't be doing with forking out £1000 to get my car repaired which only cost £8000 in the first place - that's quite a few nights out down the drain in one hit!

    What are you likely to buy next?

    I fancy getting either the newer shape MINI hatchback or the new shape fiesta, possibly the latter as I had a fiesta before and was so cheap to run/maintain compared to my baby MINI cabrio :(

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    AMAZING! Its so crisp/precise and a joy to drive! Great handling and pretty nippy when you want it to be.

    What's it like to park?

    Took a while to get used to with the roof up due to restricted rear view, but the parking sensors really help and its so small it can be parked anywhere!

  • Living with it

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    The roof broke about 6 months after purchase and was supposed to cost an eye watering £2000 to repair! Luckily MINI stumped up the parts for free as a goodwill gesture, so only had to pay for labour, which was still a hefty £960!

    What's most practical about your car?

    There isn't anything practical, apart from its small size!

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Rain sensitive windscreen wipers and fully electric folding roof.
