Personal preference mate, i'd leave that choice to you. Its your money at the end of the day and you'll be the only one driving it.

TBH, neither of the above. Even though I work at BMW/MINI my personal opinions of the MINI are quite negative, mainly because I see what goes wrong with them everyday.

All i can suggest is look at how much money you can afford to spend on a car, then look at the possiblities. MINI isn't the be-all and end-all of hatchbacks. there are a lot of other good cars out there. I would suggest find out what comes into the same price bracket with similar options. Then make a decision. Worst thing to do is get a car that everybody else likes, you might hate it.

Well if thats the one your after then go for it.

Don't forget, the MG is expensive to insure because its classed as the sports alternative to the rover 25, even though the ZR is in effect its own car. The cooper is a much heavier car so the performance isn't that far away from the ZR105.

But if you like the MINI and its the best deal in your area then go buy it.

Understood but at the end of the day it is personal preference. newbz said he'd looked around and is interested in the MINI so be it. Those clios can shift something else but they are french. Once again thats my opinion but if you like them go for it.
