The Mini has been around since 1957/1958 but they stopped production. However, it was resurrected in 1997 by BMW but the Classic Mini, may it be Austin, City, Cooper, etc. are still popular. Even more so than the new one, which are much bigger and aren't really 'mini'. The Mini even has lots of clubs, websites, magazines devoted to them. There are even huge events like the 'London-to-Brighton Mini Run'. I've been to that a few times where thousands of Mini's drive from Crystal Palace to Brighton for various events to watch and with lots of things to buy. I'd driven a Mini for three years right after I got my driver's license before having to sell it for a more ... Read the complete review

My First Car or how to fit six students in a mini! This is part of Aefra CARS/MOTOR BIKES OF MEMORY motors challenge but I must admit that I've struggled to find something to write about. Although I drive a car everyday I 'm not an enthusiast to me they are a means of transport and little more. I do like some cars but mostly they are of the sport classics variety. Ferrari's, E-types and Aston Martins that I?ve never had a chance to drive so when thinking about motor memories I'm stuck with the mundane. Thinking more on it and not wanting to disappoint Aefra I realised that I had driven a 'classic' and it is a car that has stuck ... Read the complete review

It was time to replace my girlfriends car, and she had her heart set on a Mini Cooper S. Luckily, I kept my sensible head on and suggested that we go for a diesel model, better mpg, plus the added bonus of being able to fill it up using works fuel card! After lots of shopping around we found a one owner private sale of a 2009 Mini Cooper Diesel, slightly high mileage for the age, but it was fully loaded. As it's a diesel model, I will start by reviewing the engine. It's a 1.6 Litre turbo diesel engine, producing 110bhp. It's suprisingly quiet for a diesel engine and does run very well, the six speed gearbox is very smooth and it pulls ... Read the complete review

I'm writing this review specifically about Classic mini's - not the BMW ones (which aren't proper mini's anyway!) I made a suggestion for classic mini's but was told to write my review here. I will also say at this point that although my dad is a mechanic, I don't know all that much about cars myself so this review won't be full of technical information! Very brief history: The mini was built between the years 1959 and 2000, with the overall design changing very little in those years. In that time however many different companies made the mini such as Austin, Morris and Rover. In the year 2000 BMW bought the rights to build the mini and it's never been ... Read the complete review

I will be honest, I have never really been a big fan of Mini's. At school my best friend was crazy about them and she was certain that was what she wanted to drive when she was older, however personally I was not too fussed by them. Yes, they were a nice car but not top on my list! Then when my old car needed to go my Dad asked me if I would like a Mini. I thought long and hard about it and initially my answer was no but then I began to come around to the idea. I never actually picked my Mini. One evening, I mentioned someone was interested in my current car to my Dad but that they couldn't view it until the following weekend. He replied that ... Read the complete review
