I bought Bean because of my impending 124 mile a day trek to and from work and wanted something that got good gas mileage, had some personality and was fun to drive and the Mini ticked all those boxes.

I bought my first Mini back in '04 for one simple reason: my parents never allowed me to have a go-kart.

Cheers,

Charlie

It was the mileage. I bought my 2005 MINI R52 S in 2015 with 3,648 original miles.

I have always been a V8 guy. In my garage is a 91 Corvette, 87 Monte SS, and a 65 Malibu SS. At the time I bought this mini I was driving an 04 Caddy CTS-V and a supercharged 06 Saturn Ion Redline. I got T-boned with the Saturn and I needed to find a replacement. My wife could not drive stick, so I needed to find something automatic, good on gas, and something I would even want to drive. In came the thought for a Mini. Found this one and discovered that I loved driving it. Sold the Caddy, and began my modifications and personalized touches. I bought this with 37000 miles and I hit 209000 miles yesterday. I simply love this car and will keep it as long as I can!
