After buying Rover and its associated brands in 1994 BMW set out to modernize the iconic Mini, introducing the Cooper 3-door hatchback in 2001 that included three variants: the base Cooper, the sporty Cooper S and the range topping John Cooper Works. The result was a thoroughly hip interpretation of the "Hot Hatch" segment with a style that while true to the Classic British Mini benefited mightily from the best that German engineering had to offer. Gen One Minis received a facelift and mechanical improvements in 2005. All Gen One Cooper S models were performance enhanced with a supercharger and when combined with the 6-speed manual transmission are proper sports cars and became instant classics. This 2005 Cooper S is rolling on just 75,000 miles, and although not perfect is in great running condition. These three pedal 6-speed cars are easy to drive and are a blast to romp around in. Despite their diminutive proportions they are surprisingly roomy and comfortable, not to mention well equipped. The Mini Cooper S 6-speed is a great option for young car enthusiasts who want to operate a car with a manual transmission and for parents who want to indulge that young car person without breaking the bank or putting them behind the wheel of an impractical Miata or a 400 horsepower Mustang. Its hard not to like a Mini. Some people think they are cute, others see them as economical. They are great commuter cars that fit in tight places. There is also an appreciation among car enthusiasts for the highly engaging driving experience they deliver. This Mini Cooper S is located in Rowlett, Texas and is offered for sale as is where is with a clean Texas title and accident free Carfax.
