Mini in general
Advantages: MPG in this economy is a saving
Disadvantages: no spare tyre, a puncture kit supplied but my tyres are run flats and so cannot be repaired anyway!
My boyfriend bought me a Mini for my 21st birthday a couple of months ago. My parents had bought me both bmw's and mercedes before but I wanted to put the fun back into driving aswell as still driving in style.
The car itself is funky, modern and classy. I think i would consider it a ladies car, particularly for the younger client but this should not put you off even if 'mature' as will definitely make you feel younger!
Mine is black and in the convertible style and, in the rarest opportunity that we have had sun and i have had the roof down, i have had some fantastic looks and compliments!
Its drive is smooth and the gear change sporty and sexy. With a 63mpg it is an effecient sexy! I fill mine up monthly at £50 and tend to get around 700 miles from that.
TLC package well worth it. 4 years of servicing, oil changes, screenwash, warranty, checks, help, breakdown etc all included. free hoovering and wash service on dropping it off and the reputation safe as part of bmw.
Negatives - quite a low driving car and so some others headlights shine right at eye level, no spare tyre, just a puncture kit which is pretty usless as mine are run flat tyres so punctures cannot be repaired anyway!
Summary: a great drive. smooth and sexy
