my mom has always wanted one so today she traded in her oldmobile bravada in and got a 04 Mini Cooper with only like 5000 miles on it took some quick photos maybe i will take more in the light and after the windows are tinted a little darker. so far im diggin the cooper alot. it isn't an S but it has some extras, like fogs, projectors, sun roof, 17's, and some other small stuff. o yea and it also has a "cold air intake" which i don't know if it is any good.

i love the look of the stripes and the checkered mirrors, seems to make it more euorpean looking for me...

the mini is awesome. my cousin had one when i went to visit her and the thing seemed like such a fun car. Pretty quick and I'm sure it handles well. Tell your mom I said congratulations and I hope you get to steal the keys often.

The Mini Cooper is a blast to drive, you'll have fun. A firend has a Cooper S with most of a Works package on it plus a 19% reduced pully. This is a rocket on roller skates! If you get the chance for a Cooper S - Drive it!
Now I want to hear that beautiful supercharger whine on my Z3!
