    Not sure if the OP has bought anything yet... or how close you are, but if you are traveling in the city a small/small car is fine. If you are commuting on the highway with it, go with something a bit bigger like a Golf. Safety should be a big factor in your decision.

    Second hand is also better IMO. My last few cars have been dealer certified used cars. A good place to get a Mini or Golf with a 2 year warranty.

    Hey everyone, yeah I finally decided to go for a Mini (new from 2019), and I had it for a few days now. I don't know if it was the right choice or not but damn I would lie if I said I wasn't enjoying it until now! This car is so much fun to drive :)

    Thanks to everyone for the tips and discussions we've been able to have here.

    Mini Coopers are where it's at. I bought a 2012 Countryman S used a few years ago. I love that car to death, it's fast and practical. Plan on driving that puppy to the ground. Congrats on yours!

    Congrats on the car!
