If ever I was forced to get a smaller more economical car (NEVER ! ) then I would go for something like the 500.

Very very tight for space Dave, A mind boggling range of accessories and add ons.

Punto would be just as economical to run tho with a lot more space, far more practical.

Mini is another that comes with a host of extras, Diesel is awful, not keen on the convertible.

I think it all depends on the colour if it's girly looking or not, I like them with big wheels fill the arches.

Yep I agree I'm not so keen on the face lifted version.

But good cars to drive . and at the moment very good residuals, To many about now, tho it is hard to find 2 the same

I had a lot of minis in the past, all types and configurations, My fave was a mini pick up Great fun with a 1310 engine

As I said before not sure I would want to revisit them now best left in the past or for very occasional use.

Nostalgia is best left in the past sometimes
