Mini's are great, I am looking at a Convertible S for the wife.

The new Italian Job is crap compared to the real Italian Job. Cars are better though.

I did that today at school today. It was hidden behind a big SUV and I started to pull into the "spot" only to find a Mini there I was like "damn mini's" and drove off to another spot.

i've driven around 50-60 different mini's this is my opinion, 5-speeds = not so good, auto = ok, and 6 speed = i like
