I think the MINI is a great little car, and surprisingly roomy in the front. I would love to have one similar to what they were using in "The Italian Job"

Space Blue/silver roof

I thought the S option was only a couple grand?
It's definitely worth it unless she doesn't care about performance at all.
Also, they're redesigning it next year and it is going to have way more power,
so you might want to make her hold off,
at least until the end of the MY to get a good deal,
or until the new one comes out.


edit: the standard Mini Cooper is getting a hp bump from 115 to 150hp and they are supposed to come out Summer 2006 as a 2007 MY

What We Know: While BMW has made some minor changes to the styling of its popular midget car, the big news for the next-generation Mini will be the complete overhaul of its engine range. BMW has designed a new series of all-aluminum twin-cam engines with French company Peugeot, at least two of which will appear in the "Mini 2." While the capacity will remain the same for all available powertrains at 1.6 liters, the engines themselves are expected to be vast improvements over the hastily designed Tritec engines that Chrysler originally provided for the vehicles. The standard Cooper will receive a substantial bump in its horsepower from 115 to 150, while the Cooper S' new turbo engine will channel its 170 hp into a much more sophisticated package. BMW is considering retaining a 115-hp engine as an option for the standard Cooper. All three of these engines will feature Variable Valve Timing, while the turbos will be endowed with common-rail direct-injection fuel delivery. In addition to the above mentioned engines, other changes include a new and slightly longer body, new sheet metal, a revised grille and upgraded interior materials.

I agree - I drive our MINI for fun at weekends, it is so chuckable....

Cdheaven, spec looks nice, power outputs on the new models, which will be launched , and this is definite, in September 2006, as 07 models , aren't confirmed as yet.

On MINI2, we have doubts that the Cooper will be 150bhp as the S is 170 - Cooper output at the mo is 115 bhp, can't see they will boost it this far.

If she can go for a cabrio, and has to have a car now, I suggest plumping for it, as the new shap cabrio probably won't be launched till September 2007, at the VERY earliest, so will retain more value.

Read MINI2 for info.....
