Yeah, the components are indeed expensive as fuck and it's average when it comes to reliability but it's a really fun car to drive.

Dealer wanted $300 ausbux for a water coolant hose so I said fuck that and bought a wrecker part for half the price, I'm replacing it myself, god knows how much if I took it to a shop
>>
>>24201660
It's none of those things.

>>24201697
The problem isn't that it isn't fun.
It's that a Miata is more fun without the problems.

I'm not the one driving a large FWD BMW.
>>
>>24201721
If I was a mechanic and someone brought me this I’d tell them to fuck off.

I think that’s basically what your dealer was telling you. That fucking engine bay is the tightest engine bay I have ever seen.

?? Is this straight up bait????

>>24201818
The first and second gen MINI's were still worthy of the name but the current gen MINI has grown almost 200mm in length compared to the earlier ones. It's pretty much just as big as any other small hatchback.

You must've not worked on the 1st gen mini Tritec engjne, it makes this look tighter than a jewish banker with his money

>>24201208
The mini has a great chassis but is absolutely plagued by it’s horrendously trash engine.
>>
>>24202197
Have you tried the new ones? Besides the timing chains are a common issue but other than that I can't recall any other problem I had with mine. (130k kms)
>>
>>24201741
Literally this. I just bought a Miata and am selling my mini. Mini is fun, but fuck the parts prices and fuck trying to do the work yourself. It’s like it was designed to be frustrating to work on. Only kept it this long since it was grandmas car that I inherited and had to keep it around while she was still alive.
>>
>>24202427
I mean...I know there were a few Miata shills on this board but this is already annoying. Enjoy your new car, stop shitting on Mini.

I can kinda of understand him, I don't like miatafags, but I had a R53 which was a joy to drive - had a few problems which could've been avoided with preemptive service but my broke college ass didn't. I have a R60 S now and it's a bit heavier but has more power. Unfortunately it's just as complicated when something does go wrong. Every modern MINI as essentially a FWD BMW, and at that point I'd rather get an actual BMW where I'll have problems and shit but at least with a 130i/135i I'll have an inline 6 with rwd to appreciate.

>timing chains
Son that’s a major issue not something that can be ignored. And yes I have, theyre shit. Shoulda used honda engines instead of Bmw, they’d be faster too. Especially since no stock mini is as fast as a civic R
>>
>>24201208
A Mini is decidedly not fun.
A Miata is fun.
I own both.
The Miata -- cheap thrills.
The Mini -- expensive bills.

should have been drive train replacements under 80k miles edition

>>24204348
I bought a mini solely for city driving, it's nimble and easy to use in heavy traffic. Still don't think it's as bad as people make it look like.
>>
>>24201208
the electric mini is one of the best city electrics you can buy nowadays, but it should have been RWD
>>
Mine comes in July. Can't wait to drive it bros.

I dont understand why people would buy a Mini. Youre better off buying a 1 series BMW or X1/X2 and getting the same platform with a better interior and drivetrain (RWD or AWD)

Kekd at the gif. I like Minis because I enjoyed driving them the most.
