supercharged excellent. Do love Mini's on 10's. I went through a phase of thinking sports pack wheels were the be all and end all but now 10's are best!

Continuation of the classic mini legend, go kart handling as standard

Rover launched the new MINI as we know it today back in 1997.

See youtube link

It was when Rover was sold by BMW that the MINI production line was moved from Longbridge to Oxford and the Rover 75 production line from Oxford (cowley) to Longbridge.

BMW refined the work already carried out by Rover but some of their weaknesses still existed. i.e. the Midlands gearbox in the 2001 - 2004 MINI One & Cooper Models.

Unfortunately there is a lot of new MINI hatred still out there, most of them have never driven them to be honest or are just following the trend from their other classic counterparts. There was the same problem when Rover introduced the new Rover Mini Cooper back in the early 90's from the original Cooper owners. Also if it wasn't for BMW the classic Mini wouldn't of lasted as long, the mpi models would never of happened if it hadn't of been for their extensive redesigning to meet safety standards
