I have just been sat looking at the MINI2 Personal Galleries checking out some MINI Porn as you do early on a Sunday morning when u should be working ... One of my colleagues walks past catches a glimpse of a fantastic picture of a BEP MC ... He scrunches up his face and says ... "What u buying one of those for" ... I advised him that I was buying one cos they are one of the greatest ever cars created. He just laughed and walked off.

I let this lie as I thought it was a passing comment that I could live with. On his way back to his desk he makes another comment ...

"MINI's are over-rated, over-priced for what they are, and really dont live up to the hype"

OH MY GOD ... I walked to the toilet to answer a call of nature cos I would have gotten up and smacked him in the face ! His comments are "UTTER CHUD" I am very upset by this. I just said to him "How can u justify this, Have you ever drove or owned a MINI" To this he shook his head ! WELL THERE YA GO THEN !

I detest these MINI haters ... So prejudice ... Its really not on ... I wouldnt [email protected] off his bog standard base model Vauxhall Vectra cos its just not worth my time ! ... Maybe I dont wanna bog standard base model mass produced piece of GARBAGE ! I want to feel special driving a special car like MINI ... I am pretty sure the hundred of you MINI owners would agree with me !

What a LOSER ... Thought he was an alright bloke before this comment however I shall be swiftly removing him from the Xmas card list and chit chat will not be exchanged at Xmas party with him this year !

This has happened before ... Check thread below ...

Whats up with these people ... Where do they really get off ! Why dont you just go play garden bowls or something ... Go and wash your cardigan ... Just leave us MINI lovers alone ! GRRRRRRR ! Rise up and Revolt against the MINI haters !

People are too quick to jump to (incorrect) assumptions, and especially if something is seen or portrayed as "cool", people assume it's just not very good in real life.

How wrong.

:)
Exactly my point ... They dont give MINI a chance ... They will obviously never own one because they dont come in the colour BROWN ... If they maybe took the time to just take a look at a site like this maybe even <GASP> Take a test drive they are 99.9% likely to change their narrow minded pathetic opinion of not just a car but a LIFESTYLE.

I dont know if I am just obsessed or what but I cant get enough of MINI ?

think of it this way, do you really want these people to be MINI owners? Didn't think so, so leave them to their thinking and you know that really its them that are missing out and you that has MINI:)

Its not just a car, its so much more:D

oh and if you do get fed up of the constant digs, take them out in your car, thats what I did with someone once, now he has nothing bu praise for my car;)

asking if they've ever driven a MINI and what they base their opinion on normally puts 'em on the back foot

Ha ha ... Quality ... I think I may just do that. I reckon it may result in a physical encounter but it would be funny and my friends would like me for it !

Ah, the classic idiot co-worker: too much time on his hands and too little sense. Tell him he's welcome to choose your car for you when he pays for it.

The MINI would be perfect...it had an extra 6 inches of leg room in the back...but then again, my one is perfect because I don't carry people in the back and so its perfect!

But at least some one hasn't KEYED your MINI....I have a lovely 18 inch scratch on the side....someone will pay in Hell for that. :mad: :mad:

Same reason as people hate anything: fear, ignorance, narrow-mindedness, etc. Many people are just plain stupid as well.

Don't give in to hate or let it get to you. It's not worth it. Just ignore the idiot. You'll have a car that you love and that you enjoy driving. Does it matter what anyone else thinks about it? I don't think it does. It's your money, your life. Do what you want with it.

Don't worry about him, he's never going to know what it feels like to have anything stylish. He'll never have people checking out every inch of his car as he drives down the motorway, he'll never have kids pointing and waving as he goes past, never get complete strangers approaching in the street and telling him how nice his car is. Just think, if everyone had our taste in cars we wouldn't stand out any more would we?

The other night in the pub I was having a friendly conversion with a girl I had just met. We managed to get the conversion onto cars and she told me what she drove (a VW Golf :eek: )
I then told her what I drove ( MINI cooper) she suddenly started moaning "oh thats a womans car", "do you realise you drive a womans car","its not very macho". I asked her if she had ever driven one, needless to say she hadn't. As you can guess that was the end of my conversion with her.

Just wait til he is on his way home in his Vectra ( :p :rolleyes: :p )

Line up at a roundabout and drive round the outside of him and cut him up, then tell him thats why you drive a MINI :D :D

I love catching people out on roundabouts and corners :D :D

Everytime anybody gets in my MCS that hasnt been in it before, start saying they like the big dials and the look of it and then just sit there. Then when the journey starts they ask what the noise is (popping of the exhaust - supercharger etc etc) with a big grin and say how quick it is and how well it handles and that they didnt know they drove like this. At the end of the drive they have the "I want one" words to say and a big grin on there face :D

You should of said to the guy "Why what car do you drive?" reply "vectra"
then laugh uncontrolably and say "cummon now stop messin" might aswell have said a daewoo matiz there almost on a par :D :D
