My Mini Cooper is in gettin a service an i was told i would get a car to use as it would be in all day. Anyway i got to the BMW/Mini garage at 10:15 to be told that all the cars had been issued out. I thought great, the service guy was like hang on, all double check again, so 20mins later he comes back an says right we have a brand new 5 series, my eyes lite up thinkin oooh cool. Then someone else walked upto the guy an said blah blah we have a Mini available. I was like damn, bet i get the Mini.
Anyway the guy showed me out to the Mini an i was like wohoo. He had to show me the whole key fob an push start button job.
Heres some pics of the car
Sorry got a bit carried away taking pics of it since its a gorg day.
Its quite quick an has a fair amount of torque steer even with the traction control. Feels very solid, nice drive. Copes well in town/city traffic but on back roads i think its a bit to twitchy, tbh i prefere my N/A Cooper for back roads as i think the Cooper S jumps about to much on little bumps on road etc.
I love the interior an like the layout, its a bit diffrent to my Mini. Also noticed that when i got home that before i went to turn it off it sounded a bit on the tickety side if you know what i mean. Kinda reminded me of my old Fiesta but not as bad lol.
Overall i think its a fab car
