Talking 2005 Mini cooper s for $10,599 Should I??

I test drove an 05 mini coopers s yesterday. Such a fun car to drive! It has 52K miles on it. Is $10,599 a good price? Also... how reliable are they? I read horror stories about them. I know they are super fun but are they worth it? And how many miles can i expect out of it? I have an '01 jetta with 220K and shes still goin! What kind of maintenance do they require? Thanks for the input!

Use Edmunds or Kelly Blue Book to check if the price is reasonable.

The supercharger will require replacement or rebuild sometime over 100K.
