Just had a quick go in a Mini JCW. Late night quiet country roads I was astonished how quick it was. Long time since I have driven a hot hatch but it blew me away. Tyre noise and refinement were terrible though. I especially liked the F1 style lights on the dash showing the rev limit and flashing for change up.
Would lose my license if I had one.

Awesome cars to drive, I agree. But there are too many downsides for me to even think about one. Impractical, very hard ride, expensive to repair and reliability (from friends experience) is not good. It is a proper hot hatch though. Golf GTi, Focus ST etc are just too large and maybe even too fast to fall in that category for me now.
