Mini Cooper T vs BMW e60 OFF TOPIC
Europe EMOFTW 
Hello guys, i know this site aint about cars and theres really small about car guys out there but i wanna hear your opinion as im going to buy myself my 2nd car. My 1st car was Mini One (2005). In about 1 year ive driven a lot of other cars as: Audi a6 3.0TDi-2004 Audi a3 2.0TDi-2004 Mercedes-Benz CLS350-2012 and other cars. All the cars were amazing, but the Mini had the best joy of riding: cornering with high speed is so easy with this car as it doesnt slide and you feel the road at max. Main purpose of this car will be to tune it a little- suspension, rims, etc. so i can take it to some car shows n stuff. I want the car to be economic(as i drinve about 500 km/week, good looking, sporty and in price range of about 4000-6000euros. Mini Cooper S r56(2008) 1.6Turbo 170hp- easy to tune with little efforts ~210hp Kinda fast and steady on the road. Bmw 525i/530i e60 N/A engine 215/255hp-hard to tune need expensive kits. Not as fast as the MCS but looks and fits me better as other ppl around me say im 1.90cm tall. Can you guys give me your opinion if you have free time and want to help me decide. Thanks :)

I have a mini cooper S but 2018 version. good karting I dont understand because both cars are diffrent you cant decide betwenn a city car and family car ? ofc mini best for sensation (imo r56 is good version because in new generation there less feeling of the road) it depends also if you need space in the car, if you travel a lot, if you need a big car trunk (bmw 5 > mini) ...
2019-05-20 10:14
exactly bro! i dont really know which type i want because i dont want to change it for atleast 5 years!) Im going to college, my parking is bad and theres little parking spots, i think MCs is better for my needs but all the people around me saying go for the bmw...
2019-05-20 10:26
lol all ppl here are young kids from russia wearing addidas & for them best car are bmw don't listen to them, you will have more fun with mini + bmw5 will cost you more than Mini in assurance, repair, garage, tires, ... + if you are young and still to college mini is for young and easier to park than bmw
2019-05-20 11:30
thanks i think mini will suit me better but my parents also telling me to get something different, guess they dont know how fun it is ^^
2019-05-20 13:03
Minis are BMWs, what the fuck are you talking about?
2019-05-20 13:08
i know its same brand but not same spirit & driving experience =)

Go with bmw. Minis are the worst.
2019-05-20 13:05
It is the same company... Even parts are the same
2019-05-20 13:09
lol u cant be more wrong. which parts are the same? they use Bosch-for injectors and other stuff as german company like audi etc uses. none of older minis use bmw engines or trans, they use getrag trans(some) which aint bmw. MInis have toyota, peugeot engines but newer ones are by bmw:))

hltv fucks up links but check out second generation.
2019-05-20 14:16
yeah bro but i dont understand what you mean by the "same" minis are much different than any other cars even bmw 1/2 series arent similar to mini..
2019-05-20 14:22
Especialy newest Minis are almost 1:1 BMWs. They are tuned diffirently but it is the same car. They are using BMW X1/X2 platform to build Minis. Since 2006 Minis are made entirely by BMW. Even the engine made in cooperation with PSA was produced at BMW Factory. I'm not saying BMWs or Minis are bad, i like them both, but saying that they are completely different is so naive.

They are now pretty similar yes, but old minis used the worst bmw motors and I don't believe they have changed much.
2019-05-20 15:17
yeah in terms of working on them they are real paiin in the ... but on the other hand if u driven one you can see how fun they are

For me, they are ugly and they don't deliver. Bmw is a much safer bet on reliability also.

how u can compare 2 different cars? e60 all the way
2019-05-20 14:10
thanks for the advice

PLS Don't buy the R56 it is known for its engine problems. It's timing chain gets longer and you will eventually have to fill up oil every 500-1000km. Go for the R53 even if it's not as easy to tune because it has a supercharger or just get the newer one.
2019-05-20 14:17
i have r50 which is same platform as r53 and its little oldish like theres rattles and sounds from everywhere :D need something a little different and by the way i love supercharger sound but it also consumes more fuel than turbo'd
2019-05-20 14:21
bmw 😎 or mini
