It's strange car. I had a just a cooper (guess they don't loan out S's) with and auto trans. The trans sucks. It's better in sport mode, lousy in manumatic mode. The car was very twitchy. I got it sliding off the road at least twice. It only got 30.4 MPG; I get 27.5 in my E90. It was fast on the highway though. Nice college kids car.
