 Pros John Cooper Works Hardtop has a distinct identity. It can help you to stay out of the image of an 'average' car owner.

 Pros Decent fuel economy and incredible power delivery bestow a fun to drive car that is affordable to run.

 Pros 'Youification' the customization service offered by Mini gives you an opportunity to keep your John Cooper Works Hardtop unique.

 Pros Heated front seats and power folding mirrors offer excellent driving comfort in the cold weather.

 Pros Anti theft alarm system protects your car from burglars

 Pros Auto dimming rearview mirror provides great comfort in night driving.

 Pros The color combination of black and red with red accents on disc brakes is just one of the color options you have but there are literally unlimited color choices for you to make.

 Cons The 205 tires are probably not the best for performance enthusiasts although they are really good on the fuel efficiency front.

 Cons The leather seats are offered as optional package. The leatherette/fabric seats that comes as standard somehow affect the branding of John Cooper Works Hardtop.

 Cons Metallic paint, again offered as an optional package, somehow makes the mini feel cheap as the upgrade is only $500.
