Soon my lease ends and I don't know what to get. I have a Cooper 2011 automatic. For sure I will get the standard (did not have one in my colour last time). Now the new MINIs come with more hp than my current 120hp they are already faster with 134hp.
And then there is the Sport button.
Any suggestions here?
Sorry what's a swmbo. Yes minis seem very cheap to insure.combined low repair cost and great security I suppose . She pays 130 fully comp for a roadsters s ie 184bhp!! I had to ring e sure and check they'd not made a mistake.!! She's early 40's.
You need to tell me what those extras were now Travis. Am intrigued. . Assume you have a cooper s. I was very torn too. I think what really did it for me was,sadly I had to sell my triumph Daytona 955i, a lovely superbike with the most amazing 3 cylinder engine because it was too uncomfy! The mini 3 cylinder reminds . Me of that or a Porsche.
We both think the same cesarpand. First time ever in a car I've gone equipment over performance, but I am just fed up of driving a fast car in traffic jams. I have the motor bike for the speed Buzz and that makes traffic irrelevant. My wife was very worried about my choice but the Cooper is only 0.3 seconds slower to 60mph than my beloved mr2 mk2! It is not a slow car and I have not missed my r56 mcs with 184 bhp. In fact t it's so quiet and refined I regularly have to check my speed.70 feels like50!
Sure does Richard. Bet road surfaces are decent in Germany too. Here in the uk it's pothole city! Hence I went for 17" wheels but no run flats! Smaller actually would've been better but I liked the looks!
