"Every time I drive the Mini, although I own a Mercedes SLK and a BMW Roadster, it simply makes me smile. Major work is best done at dealership, but in 90K miles, brake pads, water pump (extended warranty), and thermostat is acceptable. Maintenance cost is comparable to other European cars. It has the black carbon sports seats, COMFI! It is not a Honda or Toyota nor it drives, looks, or feels like it! We also have a Honda, not cheap to maintain at the dealer, and honestly it is a boring car, you get what you pay for...
The Mini is a base model 6 speed, with enough power, and a top speed of 130 MPH at 42 MPG. Smooth, smooth, smooth. Yes it costs a bit more, life is worth living, and it is a different feeling than a Prius! It's a nimble, quick, efficient mini BMW:-)"
