M3............. has sat the last few years. It's kinda done, but not the way I want it. Last year I had it out on the road. This year I didn't register the plates as I need emissions.

I really don't get you people liking these "things"

Oh come on, they're so tiny and compact. you don't even have to park them. You can just throw them in your purse and walk into La Senza.


I actually like these things. But I've heard the earlier ones had some issues.

I've had a few cars in the days including a well modified 2000 328i 4 door.......... the E30 M3, etc. And hands down, this thing is the most fun DD I've ever owned.

The modifications are crazy easy and widely available. It gets decent gas mileage, is way bigger inside then one would expect and is an absolute blast to drive. Personally, I really don't care what anyone says about them.......... if you've driven a Mini Cooper S and don't get it, you must be an '89 Taurus wagon luv-er.

This spring, suspension mods coming, some new audio.......... bunch more exterior and interior cosmetic changes.

I'm 6'4", in every car my seat is at the extreme rear most position, except the original Mini. I had to pull up to reach the wheel. I was impressed with interior room!

that actually looks pretty cool! congrats! make sure you post pics after the upgrades, really curious to see how it turns out

Steph............ one of the girls on SOMC had a mini all decked out in pink trim ........... she's a serious enthusiast regarding Mini Coppers !!


She just sold this for a Clubman JCW all decked out........... that will likely get the same pink work applied.


I've driven the 335i........ it's also really nice, but it's a completely different world of driving versus a Mini. Both are awesome in their own ways........... but vastly different experiences. Mini's as DD's are like driving a go-cart every day........ no truer a description can be used !!!*th-up*

02-09-2010, 07:23 PM
Well at least it's not a bug!! Welcome to the wonderful world of understeer!

Guess as a daily it's acceptable as the e30 m3 is still in possesion :)

Many, happy km to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
