What car did/do you drive before owning a MINI?
How would you rate your MINI in comparison to your previous car?

for me...
1974 850cc Mini - very slow and uncomfortable. It breaks down every time it rains or when it's too hot or when it snows, but its brilliant fun to drive and I love it.

My previous was a Merc A-Class A160.

Loads more room than a MINI especially for large loads as seats come out but who cares, the MINI is fun to drive, looks funky and is built a damn sight better. If I need to move a wardrobe, i'll hire a van...

nc:D

Previous car = mini
Current car = none
Next car = MINI

The mini was by far and away the most fun car I have owned or driven, and I have driven a number of different cars.

I have driven the MINI and it's a great car to drive, but ain't like a mini.....more comfortable, faster, better brakes etc...but the mini is an icon, and drives like no other car. Looking forward to picking up my MINI, but it's a different drive.....

First car = Mini Cooper 1.3i 1995
Second car = MINI Cooper

For creature comfort and safetfy, the MINI beats Mini by a very large margin.

As for the fun factor, the MINI reminds me of the Mini.

Now that my car has run in, all I can say is that she rocks and is great fun to drive!!! :D :D :D

By the way, PLEASE do not turn this into a MINI/Mini debate, THANK YOU!

Doh! Checked the wrong choice - should have checked "Nowhere as good as my MINI" instead of "Brilliant...." :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
