YES! YES! A thousand times YES!
Actually, what I need to express my enthusiasm for the car is the sound file of Meg Ryan in the restaurant from _When Harry Met Sally_.

I think we are all in agreement then! My plan is to get another one when the miles start to climb

Not to be a real downer here but I would have to give a resounding "maybe". I love the car but quite frankly the build quality seems to be fairly marginal. I haven't had a car with so many rattles, squeaks and fairly major (transmission failure at 3500 miles) problems ever. OK, I did have a $75 1965 Buick that the camshaft broke after 20 miles and destroyed the motor, so I guess that was the worst car reliability wise :). We'll see how the Mini is holding up at the end of the warranty. My other biggest concern is the price of BMW service ($89 an hour here) for what is essentially a fairly inexpensive car ($16,800 base) and a lot of potential problems because of all the advanced systems the car has. Granted I DID order most of them but you get my drift :-). Tough call, it is definitely the most entertaining fwd car I have EVER driven though.

absolutely. the car has become an obsession. like a beautiful woman, it's more than worth the special attention.

Would definently buy again. With the information you have got from this site, be sure to confront your dealer and INSIST on them DBL checking and referencing the lastest in fixes/recalls. No reason to even drive it off the lot until then. Peace of mind.

May 23rd, 2003, 04:13 AM

Well, I've had my MC just over a year now and it has 35,000 Km on the clock.
It has had major problems, suspension replaced, gearbox replaced, some minor rattles and now the steering column is to be replaced.
So, would I buy it again
Yes, no question about it, there is no other car that appeals to me as much as the MINI. Next time might be an S, but then again might be another Cooper.
