    Bar the alloys, that was the car I learnt (and passed first time :D) to drive in... LJ Small in Wolverhampton have a troupe of Yellow new minis, yeah so there not as cool as the old mini (want one when I have the money to fully do one up) but damn, the new mini are amazing to drive (lifestyle/comfort wise)...seriously don't slate them as a rip-off mini till you've driven one, imho the best small car/hatchback to drive excluding the price (driven: polo golf corsa micra 206 clio saxo (all mates seem to have a diff make hatchback..)

    I wouldn't call them a rip-off...bar the basic shape I'd call them a completely different car :p. From what I've heard they're rather snoreworthy to drive in comparison to a real mini.... and they're ugly... and fat...:p hehehe

    the new cooper S is an amazing car. It keeps the original go-kartiness (made up word there) that the original Mini's had.

    The A Series isn't a bad engine considering that it's 50+ years old now.

    Micra's will never be cool, whereas a mini is beyond cool :p

    (I have experience of driving both and micra = snooooore)

    And to quote some person off some driving show (forget which) when speaking on the BMW mini 'A better car than the original, but nowhere near as important.' hah.

    (I've probably said that allready in this thread, i use it alot :p)
