Mini Adventures on the Motorway
I am new to the forum, so please be gentle. I am very seriously considering buying a Mini Cooper D to replace my Celica 190. It's will be used as a everyday car, mostly motorway driving doing approx 15k miles a year. Can any new mini owners tell me what the car is like on the motorway, is it refined and quiet ,or boomy? My current car is like a tank on the motorway, so much road/tyre noise it's doing my head in , hence looking for a new car.
I went to see the mini last weekend, and they do look special. However, I was disappointed in the boot size, and the interior is very plasticy...even more so than my Celica which jap cars are renown for. But the cost saving are too good to be ignored, £35 tax, 60MPG, low insurance, no servicing costs for 5 years with tlc.
I'm going back this weekend for a test drive on a standard cooper...fingers crossed.
