Oh and BTW the auto transmission is an option on the Mini Cooper....but not on the Mini Cooper sport.

My dad had a mini, when I was in highschool. Dear oh dear...not a good family car. Oh the memories of long distance travel in that thing!...bad memory
Other than that trauma, I love them. One of my dear friends at high school had one and we used to roar around in it...with his labrador in the boot.... good memory
My girlfriend had one when she first worked in Sydney, said it was THE best car.She had a nuclear cloud sticker on the back with "that's all folks" written on it. She's got all this beautiful antique furniture now, that she bought cheap at garage sales waaaaaaaaaaay back then. She said it is amazing what you can fit into a mini...if you are determined! I would have loved to have seen her in it

and lastly...Mr Bean:heart

One of my son's school mates has a growth problem. He has stayed tiny and when he turned 18 his parents bought him a mini...he's got it all hotted up with GT stripes and all..so cute.

**cass puts a mini in everyone's Christmas stocking.....
.....except Sicy.

She gets a free pass to the next Mustang show**

I don't like those, either.

Give me my Grand Prix any day.

Someone who lives or works near my work has one. I see it at least once a week. I didn't know what it was the first time I saw it. It is so cute I want to steal it.

No way!! Maybe I was looking at the info for the Sport edition on the Web site.

Those cars are completely adorable and so British and I really want one. But I'd take a new T-Bird if that's an option.

I'm 6'5 and I want one. Well not really. I'd like to take one out on a course and have some fun with it, but I don't think I'd actually want it for my own car.

This confuses me. Freeway driving shouldn't be a problem with a manual. Once you're at freeway speed you don't have to mess with shifting gears or anything. Now, if you do a lot of bumper to bumper traffic jam driving, then I could understand, but even then I like a manual, you can react more quickly.

I just don't enjoy driving in San Francisco (ie, steep hills) with a stick. It's annoying.
