But the below vs Range Rover Evoque is insane.....



The Gen 2 MINI was produced from 2006-2013. The Gen 3 MINIs, even the base coupe, got ginormous. The best of the bunch in my mind were the 2005 Gen 1 cars. As with all of the ‘02-‘05s,they were small, spritely and handled like go-carts, but the 2005 also had a close-ratio gear box. I Updated my ‘02 with the LSD version of the 05 tranny.

Thanks. We're a Gen 2, and I guess I unconsciously realized that. I knew we weren't 1, but better than 3. It's time to update soon! =)

The new seats since the facelift are great, I'm 6'4" and now I actually can sit pretty comfortably in it, doesn't really feel that much different from the XE too be honest. So it's still not the car with the greatest room but it's pretty decent even for long drives.

Not a problem on my commutes but it gets old on cross country trips of more than 2 hours.
Interesting observation on the Elise. I haven't driven one, but remember taking my shoes off for the Europa - one foot could hit the clutch, brake, and accelerator at the same time, and I had to point my left foot to fully depress the clutch around the wheel well.

Meanwhile, if anyone finds the F-Type too tight on head or leg room, check out the new Vantage.

I had a chance to drive merc s65 over the weekend. A lot of resorts offer it as a perk to stay. BMW and Lexus also does it. But holy crap that car marries luxury and sporty with enough leg room for any height. The interiors, tech, everything shames my kitty. On winding Napa back country roads, I even noted the side lumbar would auto inflate to cushion/stabilize your left or right side going into turns. I was floored. I need to drive more cars. So cozy. Stunning and great exhaust note to boot.
