2003 Mini Cooper S Start Up, Exhaust, In Depth Tour, and Short Drive
This car used to be owned by a real good friend of mine, literally sold 30 min after making this video haha, check out the video I responded or click the annotation to see more driving than I was able to to, plus it's a pretty funny video hahaha. In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 2003 Mini Cooper S. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

This or That? Audi A1 Vs MINI Cooper S - Head to Head - NRMA DriverSeat
We already know, from numerous press reports, just how much fun the MINI is. That said, the MINI has never really been, in this country at least, directly comparable to anything else, and that's given it plenty of room to breathe. Until now, that is. Enter the Audi A1 Sport.
The A1, since its launch late last year, has gouged sales out of the MINI virtually level pegging it in sales YTD. Obviously the Audi lacks the retro-chic looks of the MINI, but in Sport guise its smaller capacity turbocharged and supercharged engine outguns the MINI Cooper S.
In terms of pricing, the MINI Cooper S, thanks to a price cut, now undercuts the Audi A1 Sport (40,700 Vs 42,500, respectively), but to get the MINI up to the same spec level as the Audi will see that price rise. For instance, our test car was fitted with: Racing Stripes $146; Carbon Rear Spoiler $1702; Carbon Bonnet Insert $470; Carbon Tailgate Handle $697; Sports Aerial $59. All of this stuff does help you personalise your MINI in a way that you can't with the Audi, but every little cosmetic option costs...

Retro cars are popular, but we have yet to find a "new" vehicle that satisfies our yearning for the "old." Can you remember your first vehicle? Didn't you love it because it was yours? If you had to drive that first car today, you'd probably say it was junk. You can't reinvent the toothbrush, any more than you can reinvent a Mini or a Beetle or a T-Bird. New cars certainly have advantages in build quality and technologies, and they generally garner better performance numbers, but the character and charisma of the original are often gone.
So, what's the point? Let's check out 14 months of "life with Mini" and find out.
A British Racing Green Mini Cooper arrived in our parking lot in March 2003. We had chosen the supercharged and intercooled S model, with a base price of $19,975 ($3000 more than the base Cooper). Standard equipment included a six-speed Getrag manual transmission, a flat-tire monitor (the Mini comes with 16-inch run-flats and no spare), traction control, electronic brake-force distribution, and ABS.
We added the Cold Weather package (heated washer jets, mirrors, and front seats for $300), a leather interior ($1250), the Premium package (multifunction steering wheel, sunroof, automatic climate control, and onboard computer for $1250), fog lights ($140), xenon headlights ($500), and metallic paint ($400), topping us out at $23,815.
The Cooper had a computerized service program that told us when to take our Mini in for maintenance. That was a very good thing, because there's only one authorized Mini dealer in Michigan: Motor City Mini, 57 miles away in Shelby Township north of Detroit.
Even with our propensity for severe driving, the Cooper prompted us only twice for service. In July 2003, we had the oil and filter changed at 12,951 miles. We weren't charged. Factory-recommended maintenance is covered for three years or 36,000 miles. The dealer dunned us $25 for a tire rotation (not a bad idea, in fact), which was not recommended, so it's not figured in our service cost.
Eight months later, the "go directly to service" indicator showed up again at 30,717 miles. The Mini got another oil and filter change (an astonishing 18K since the first one) and numerous inspections, and again, there was no charge. A few items were dealt with under warranty: A cracked trim piece on the driver's-side A-pillar was replaced. An extremely annoying rattle in the dash was quelled. The noise was traced to a faulty locating pin that had to be reglued and insulated. The front washer jets were reaimed, as they were squirting Kansas and Canada, but never the windshield. The wipers were replaced; they had been streaking, not wiping.
Our Cooper S's performance improved with age in all categories but braking: When new, the S stopped from 70 to 0 mph in 175 feet, and that lengthened eight feet to 183 at 40,000 miles. But the 0-to-60 time was 0.5 second better at 40K, finishing at 6.9, which was 0.1 second better than a Cooper S we tested in July 2002. Zero to 100 went from 20.2 new to 18.6, and roadholding improved from 0.83 g to 0.84. Among $20,000 cars, the Cooper S is quite quick.
The Mini arrived with Dunlop SP Sport 5000 DSST run-flats. Staffers liked the Mini's responsive handling but not so much its ride. The combination of a firm suspension and short 97.1-inch wheelbase did little to smooth out local roads.
