MotoringFile Provides 7 Of 10 Reasons To Love The MINI


It wants readers to supply the other three. Here are MotoringFile's seven reasons:
  1. It will eat E46 M3s alive at track days if driven properly.
  2. It’s fun at low speeds in a way that almost no car (other than something vintage) can be.

  6. It doesn’t look like anything else on the road. In fact it’s weird (and that’s good).
  7. It exudes style in a British way that is totally unique in the current automotive market.
