Mini Cooper * >>>>> Cobalt SS.

I have tons of respect for the cobalt, but it doesn't even have true IRS.

There'* a store in a local mall in the twin cities, that has hopped up ones, up past 40k..

I'm only going to go for it if I can still keep the Bonnie. If I can't then I'll have to wait 4 years

A guy at my work has one, parks beside my car, because its looks funny to see a go-kart parked beside a land yacht

His front end aligns with the midline of my front door when were both backed into a parking space.

Cool little car though.

Hmmm.......While having my BMW 745i serviced last week I test drove a Mini Cooper * in the hopes I could get my girlfriend to buy one. It was a nice little car but not enough room in back.

I guess it depends on what you are used to driving
