"2011 MCS a great little car!"5.0 starson by Kev50027
Pros: Performance, styling, quality. Storage space is surprising for such a small car, as is headroom. Customizability is outstanding, with almost infinite factory options, and a ton of aftermarket options. The noises it makes are great, from the pop and burbl
Cons: Pricey options, even though it can be a very manly car, many people see it as "girly"--until you take them for a ride in it.
Summary: The 2011 MINI Cooper S is a blast to drive, and the "pop and burble" when you let up off the throttle is simply awesome. Sound quality with the Harmon Kardon system is top notch, and the quality of the interior has gotten a lot better in 2011 model year cars. The base radio controls (no nav) is great, easy to use and it fits well with the style of the car overall. Some may not like the quirky interior, but I like it, I'm tired of boring old BMW interiors. It's easy to park, you can pretty much fit it sideways into a spot, and it has a LOT more personality than most new cars. From the tone of the turning signal to the noise that the door makes as you shut it, this car does everything it can to make you smile, whether you're a girl buying it because it's "cute" or a guy buying it because it handles like a dream. Speaking of handling, it can out-handle anything on the road. 911 owners annoying you? Laugh at them as you carve corners quicker in a car costing less than half of theirs. I'm completely serious, this MINI may not be as quick to 60 as muscle cars or an M3, but when it comes to handling, it manages to get massive amounts of grip despite so little rubber. For the base price, you get a lot of performance and fun, but options are expensive, and I easily added over $10,000 to the price. That said, with all of the options the car is a lot nicer, and it's still a deal compared to even the cheapest 1 series BMW.
Thanks for your submission!
