Ouch! Please Google "3 second rule" and follow it religiously going forward. It is a simple rule that can save your life.

Good luck with the Mini S!

In this I would totally agree with Rehaan.
Im just back from a holiday in Mauritius where my wife and I had rented a Mitsu Lancer Cedia petrol and boy, what a blaaaast that vehicle is on the twisty roads!
There were a fair smattering of Euro/UK folks who were driving Mini Cooper S's and BMW 118's and they were literally throwing those cars around the twisty A and B roads to Chamarel, Bel Ombre and Camp Diable etc.
I can only imagine how lovely it would be to drive a Mini on those roads.
I am 100% definitely renting Mini Cooper for a weekend next time I go to England, just to fly about on those yummy A and B twisty countryside roads...

Default Re: Hot Hatch Wanted - 40 Lakh Budget. UPDATE: Mini Cooper S booked!


You're not far from the truth.

Minis are known to feel a bit skittish and twitchy when the conditions aren't perfect. It does feel unsettled when driven hard on uneven roads. And it does tramline a bit too. It may have only 185 horsepower, but it is a frisky little number. A firm hand on the steering wheel is the way to go!
