    Not as loud as the one Alan S will make when he reads that.

    Perhaps Minis do fit in here though? Coz the original models had hydraulic sort of suspension and it was innovative and front wheel drive?

    yeah my brother has a cooper S.... the Mini's steering makes a really high pitched buzzing sound. Cant hear it inside but noisy as hell outside!

    i am not a big fan of how you sit in the car! but it gets moving very smartly, gives the Audi TT a bit of a run for its money( 0-100 mid 7's).... build quality is definatly BMW... and gear box is super tight, gives of a real nice short shift.... if you like that!
