Hello all! My lease is up on my passat next June and I am currently looking into my next car. I find the mcs to be the next car to get. I am a tall/big guy and it concerns me a bit if I will fit. 6'5" 265 lbs. How much room is there going to be behind my seat. I have two younger kids who are in car seats but will be in booster seats by the time I buy the car. Any thoughts would be great. Looking forward to joining the mini family next year!

Yes, I agree, you definitely need the 5-door... also, I don't think you'll find the sport seats to be very comfortable - ask your dealer to loan you a car with them for a 24-hour test drive.

I love the sport seats in my car... but taller/bigger people have complained about them on this forum.

I almost don't care about the rear leg room since pretty much any small car I get is going to have limited leg room. But the seats may be a different issue. Definitely going to have to sit in it for a while to get a good feel for it.

If the sport seats are not suitable, you could get a Cooper with standard seats...

A mc? Not an s. I want the extra power and I like the way the s looks.

Sports seats only in the S I believe. Try the Cooper, a pretty quick car.

I had an r56 S and drivability wise the new car is at least as good, plenty torque. Also the standard seats in mine are good.
