Nearest thing to a road-legal go-kart I could afford.

So completely unlike all the bland, over-nannying, Euro-boxes that manufacturers/guvments seems to think we should have.

It's a Mini.

Best wishes, Colin

The modern mini is just another car, but the real mini is the only car I love

When I purchased my Cooper in 2004 it was the best looking small car available.
I'm not so keen on the very latest version unfortunately.

I have always loved the classic mini and owned a few of them and still have one. BMW were bang on with the R50/ 56 design when evolving the mini but like Adrian I'm not terribly keen on the way the mini is going in terms of looks. I personally think its beginning to look too euroboxy

Superchargers are the business but for me I simply cant justify the stupendous road tax here in the UK considering my car is a weekend car as I have a company car

I can't put a price on how much fun the supercharged cooper s is, I'd not have any other mini.

I love the early version of the modern MINI but i don't like the 'trout pout' of the latest cars.

I'm loving my R53 mcs for its looks, imho is the best looking mini. The next gen's are to female oriented.

The one i have with the sport suspension is driving like a real go-cart. It eats corners
