2009 R57 Mini Coopeer S Convertible
Pros: Convertible Top
Cons: Lack of Quality ControlGreat gas mileage verses performance. Rides reasonably well for such a small car. Wind control for top-down riding is very impressive. Handles well and is fun to drive. Performs equally well as a touring or 'around town car.' Frustrating operating controls even after a year of use. BMW quality control is lacking: fuel pump failure right after car was driven off the showroom floor; engine sounds like a diesel truck on cold startup; seatbelt will no longer retract, and the center console is broken.
Pros: No two are alike I own three and even though I tried all are different
Cons: not enough twisty roads
Advice: rent before you buy its always best to spend some time together firstVehicle is outragous and the service department well not a good part!
Pros: pick up and comfort seats
