My little beast in my driveway

"The car has always been under warranty and then extended warranty, which ended April 2014. All maintenance has been performed by AZ Scottsdale MINI and then by AZ Tempe MINI (closer to home). All maintenance records available from birth to present date. No issues with the car, love it, and I am now seeking to acquire a new MINI Roaster S (with JCW)."

"Budget for owning a BMW, because that's what it is. Getting an extended warranty to cover her up to 100k miles was a life saver. I highly recommend doing so!! Other than that, she makes day to day life more enjoyable and A LOT of people comment on how awesome they are and ask how I like owning one. Oh and other MINI drivers often wave. It's the closest thing to driving a go cart. Happy life on the road :)"

"I have had problem after problem with this car I could have paid for it 3 times over in the cost of repairs in just 18 months never again would I buy or own one if someone offered me this car for free I would have to turn them down because it has been nothing but a headache as far as driving it when it is running well it is a fun ride but every month something new is coming up to be fixed and the fact that it is a $1000+ just to fix basic maintance issues like a clutch radiator leak (not to replace whole unit) I Find it a turn off and leaves me to say because of this car BMW and all of their products will never be considered again!"
