was pretty much going to be my response1. Sport Auto Box, Amazing
2. Engine, noises in Sport are pure Grin factor
3. Everything else.. Amazing.
Could duplicate lots of other things already said, but the one outstanding thing about the 1.5 Cooper to me is the engine. Which of course has slso already been said.
It sounds fantastic, like an off-beat boxer engine in a Subaru (or Porsche) and if you want it to, goes like stink. But can also give good economy.
A good bit of engineering.
Apologies for having "Just another MINI", my car is so ordinary without those lights.LED Lights.....WOW Factor, without them, Justa another Mini
