2008 MINI Clubman S Stick Shift, Dual Sunroof, Alloys, Comfortably Equipped, AffordableReview from Edmunds.com:The 2008 Mini Cooper is often a “but?” car. It’s tremendously fun they are driving, nevertheless its taut suspension may be jarring on a daily basis. Its compact dimensions make parking and maneuvering through traffic a breeze, but transporting four people along with their stuff is an iffy proposition. The modernistic interior is a design student’s dream, but an ergonomic specialist’s nightmare. The convertible is very much fun in the sun, but rear visibility is poor regardless of whether the top is up or down.Many of these “but” scenarios would seem to indicate an automobile filled up with compromises.

However, like a good marriage, those compromises bring beautiful rewards. Since its American reintroduction for 2002, the Mini brand has been around constant demand by the growing, loyal client base. It can be simultaneously a cultural icon, a revenue achievement plus a car enthusiast’s plaything.Despite this success, parent company BMW didn’t rest on its laurels, completely redesigning the Cooper hatchback recently to cope with parts of weakness reducing build costs. It’s wise a vehicle that rides more comfortably, has better performance and it has a friendlier driving position, all without losing the friendly and frisky nature which makes a Mini a Mini. The Cooper convertible maintains its previous-generation architecture for 2008, nonetheless its overall goodness goes to show that BMW probably could’ve waited other years before it conducted its redesign in the coupe.

The alterations made on the new-generation Mini coupe (they’ll eventually appear within a redesigned convertible) are best seen in the engine bay. Some new engines will be more refined, more robust and substantially more fuel-efficient. The base hatchback engine is a very impressive improvement and therefore, most buyers should now obtain the regular Cooper to be a lot more than adequate for their daily driving needs. The excellent turbocharged engine in the Cooper S virtually overkill. The convertible is often a different story, current drop top we’d stick to the supercharged Cooper S.Regardless of the generational differences between body styles, we wholeheartedly recommend the 2008 Mini Cooper. Even though Saturn Astra, Volvo C30 and VW Eos and GTI can be worth a look, the Cooper oftentimes defies rationality and is a car almost without equal. There are many “but” compromises around the 2008 Mini however, there’s one attribute that’s undeniable: It is a blast. No ifs, ands or especially buts over it.
