    Had the honor of taking my first ride in a Mini Cooper..... And it happened to be a Cooper S!

    All I have to say is..... WOW!!!! Those things go like a bat out of hell!!! 170 Hp and 6 speed! They sound fuckin mint and come with factory 17's.

    I didn't get to drive it, :pissed: , I got to copilot for the out of towner, but It was awesome!. I would totally consider buying one, I'm 6'3", 240 lbs and I fit no problem! If only I had $35,000.....

    Anyone else ever drive in one before???

    They handle great, one of the best stock cornering cars I've ever driven. As far as fast, well theyr'e kinda quick but not fast, and the brakes are terrible, I'd have them fading on a road test. Another 50-60hp and bigger brakes would make it a killer car. And they are winning fairly regularly in showroom stock racing classes in the States.
