I picked up a lightly used(11,400 mi.) Mini last week. Traded in a Mustang GT on it. Man, do I like this Cooper S! My wife and I took a short (210 miles) trip which included about 50 miles of urban driving and got 35.5 MPG. The Mini would easilly beat the Mustang on a closed course with it's superior handling. The sport package was a real plus on the twisty, hilly roads we drove on. I'm 78 and still young at heart. I'm a retired spacecraft/aircraft flight simulation specialist who loves guns and anything with a motor.

Welcome and congrats :) Everytime I drive my Mini, I feel like a 6 year old again!

Who let you drive at 6 years old, or did you just sneak the car out?

Nice ride streets! Any comments on how the MINI's suspension compares to the Mustang GT? It looks like you have 18" wheels on that but what about the sport suspension? Which ride was a better daily driver?

Hello and Congratulations!
My father was a career jet pilot in the USMC.
I think that he would have loved my MINI!
Try to come to "Minis on the Dragon" next May.
It's in North Carolina and lots of folks come up from Texas.
