nice cars

robertdevald says:

@Taylor40667 I can’t really believe that… :-D

Sazzist says:

Still its mechanics get kicket by the fiat punto from 1900

hejhoppification says:

@ 2:45 lucky that you have a popped collar that will protect you if you get
hit in the back then.

DaBossFan says:

Stupid fat guy… continue driving your horrible renault megane if you
don’t want to buy AUDI A1

MRRRKOOLLL says:

Rather buy the new Lancia Ypsilon it’s much more exclusive and classy!

allroadca says:

the backseat is quite an issue…

posro1988 says:

it’s not a “BMW MINI” it’s a “BMW’s MINI”, there is a difference, subtle
one but there it is!

EasternBlocCars says:

the 2010-present Audi A1 is assembled in Brussels, Belgium

benanderson89 says:

The Nissan Micra is a tiny car, yet two adults can fit in the back of one
of those just fine – the same with the Fiat 500 and the Kia Picanto. The
armrest getting in the way of the handbreak is a genuine design flaw as
well; especially since it doesn’t appear to fold out of the way. They’re
legitimate complaints and something I wouldn’t expect from a premium car
like Audi.

randombloke10 says:

@jamesysam002 most of the room will be bias to the front though with the
rear seats i do believe that its designed to force you more into the centre
rather than so far to the sides. how tall is your mate? and other than
those minor flaws still interested in buying?

mtksbctk says:

you mean a series of shunts?

spy8951 says:

I would prefer my b7 rs4 quattro (sprint blue pearl). The ride is so much
better, i have test drived one of these and all i can say is sh*t. Very
jerky, hardly any headroom, trunk (boot) space is tiny, the only thing on
this car that is probably the best is the engine. It’s tuned and has a
wonderful high pitched (rs4 sounding) note to it.

Chiponator says:

seems like a decent car but i still think the mini is better just because
of its heritage, the only competition i think the mini can really worry
about now is the citroen ds.

emrebozkurt800 says:

fat boy is fat. He should go buy an American car.

minibus1351 says:

@dunti21 I thought it was widely known that they are fun-to-drive,
exceptionally nimble cars. I guess not everyone knows.

Samuel James says:

@TheLoneJester I think the point is that its a pain in the arse. Why
couldn’t they have made it electronic?

Taylor40667 says:

There making an rs1!

Sunny says:

I’m not a fan of that contrasting pillar colour either; I’d get it in one
solid colour. Audi really should address that handbrake design issue;
perhaps make the lip of that compartment lid a little less protruding.
Other than that I think it’s a good car; but it also depends on the price.
Here in Australia its not out yet, but I doubt it’ll do well if its priced
more than $30k. I’s rather get an A3 for a couple of grand extra.

Samuel James says:

@hejhoppification You might find that more than 1 person commented on it,
so the ‘Popped Collar’ guy, aka, Me, isn’t the only person who spotted it.

flylxy says:

The guy at 2:44 looks like he would enjoy a shunt from the back…

Samuel James says:

@ferguswong77 But in that category, Citroen DS, Fiat 500, Mini even, your
head doesn’t touch the roof? I happen to be that ‘Fat guy’ so why don’t you
think about how you come across before you decide to shun whoever is there,
delivering their own opinions.

dunti21 says:

@minibus1351 not very quickly seeing as though it’s brand new and mini has
been around for like 10 years. u can’t catch up 10 years of sales

LS R says:

@flylxy Why, are you willing to give it to him? lol…

derbigpr500 says:

The handbrake / hand-rest problem is present in Audi A3 too.

dunti21 says:

@minibus1351 that doesn’t mean the Audi can’t be…

dunti21 says:

@minibus1351 the mini is “probably” better to drive… on what grounds?

MrLondinese says:

A1=Polo!

Lakhvir Chopra says:

@R774r I love this car also, it would be a great first car, however being
an Audi it would be very expensive. I am nearly 19 and insurance in my own
name for this car is nearly £3500 so for a 17 year old it would be
considerbally more, the insurance in this country is stupid is stops us
younger drivers to drive cars, it should be like america where it is on the
car not on the person.

malonefan says:

I freaking lol’ed!!

Zwai Dyasi says:

@ferguswong77 what’s stupid about his comment? the fact that there is no
headroom at the back? or the fact that armrest impedes the handbrake
operation? He seem to have substantiated all his gripes with the car and
quite conincingly. It’s probably one of the very few yet legitimate
complaints about the car and you call it stupid.

ferguswong77 says:

that fat guy, will he just shut up? of course the back is small.. its a
small car -_-

minibus1351 says:

I still don’t understand why people would choose this from a Mini Cooper S.
I mean Mini is probably better to drive and it has the history. I guess
it’s new so It will sell well. Especially people who would want to get into
a luxury brand. I’ve heard next gen Mini comes out in 2012.

pescalante2 says:

@Legendzzz007 well as far as I know, in Mexico the price range will be
between $19k and $24k, so that cheers me up

Taylor40667 says:

@robertdevald Honestly was in autocar back in January. Set to include
180bhp and Dsg, so should be pritty quick for this type of car. Same engine
as polo gti. Type audi s1 auto car in google, first link.!

celt67 says:

@Chipslice What ‘heritage’. The modern Mini owes nothing to the original.
It’s a BMW with a fancy badge.

The Lone Jester says:

The arm rest can go up before you pull the handbrake up…

Zwai Dyasi says:

minibus1351 says:

@dunti21 yeah you’re right. A1 can be sensational; however, do you really
think it will outsell the Mini?

congopete says:

Yes, you can actually call it BMW Mini. Mini belongs to BMW.

JN DNT says:

I want one!!!
