Leaks oil and breaks a lot - just like the original

Uneven front tyre wear
Stereo stopped working
Passenger seat broke.
Fun car. Direct steering, pointy handling, torquey little engine and gorgeous to look at! Just like the original. Unfortunately, they took the whole "original Mini" experience too far and included the pools of oil appearing underneath, as well as countless other silly problems. No wonder BMW don't badge it directly as a BMW, it would kill their reputation overnight. A corker of a car in terms of what it does, but seriously disappointing to own. Don't think I'd buy another.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
