Thoughts From A 2,500 Kilometer Road Trip In A MCS

Deartháir over at Hooniverse took a MINI Cooper S on a 2,500 kilometer road trip with friend "CaffieneFuelled" and provides his insights and conclusions about travel with the car. He concludes:
There are a number of vehicles you can buy brand new for less than $20,000. Some of them are even pretty decent buys. But I will go on the record and state that there is not a single one of them that can hold any kind of a candle to a lightly-used Cooper S. The “S” will have its way with those competitors so thoroughly they’ll be left wondering what happened to them. And you’ll be left smiling from ear to ear.

And if that doesn’t explain the pleasure/pain paradox, I don’t know what will.
