Angry Why does everyone (well most) people here dislike Mini's so much? :RANT:

I'd really like to know. I have one and I love it. I just see a lot of "they are shitty cars" and stuff like that. All coming from BMW owners. If you don't like our cars then stay the fuck out of the Mini Cooper section and keep your opinions to yourselves./end rant

Mark, I don't know about others here, but I dig those little guys... Seeing them sold by ALOT of BMW dealers - they just seem like "adopted baby brothers" to me. They only time they bug me is when I pull into a parking space only to find one there - you guys need flags or something

Yea, I have to agree with C1apton, my mom has a normal Cooper (no s ) and I really love driving it. Its a lot of fun and it is nimble as hell. The only problems I have with her car are 1. its an auto and 2. its not an S

Anyway have fun motoring.

I have nothing but love for the little guys. I even considered getting a used Cooper S - then I realized that i'm 6 foot 5. Still, I gring every time I pass one.

I guess I was referring to the "Anyone have one" thread a few down from this one...Sorry I have been really stressed out and having a pretty crappy life lately and a lot of little things have been getting to me.

I heard from Hoppy on the Thorums (link in sig) when I made a thread on there about getting my Mini. Again, sorry for generalizing based on a couple members.
