Re: overheating

Great commuter car in my opinion. Comfortable, fun to drive, decent mileage. You can even tune the "S" models to be fairly quick. A coworker of mine lives 3 hours away from the shop has an "S" with a few mods and drives it everyday. He loves it. His mods were simple and didn't noticably affect his mileage, but it is much quicker than stock.

Glad my post was helpful to you. I wouldn't be too worried about head gaskets being problematic on these cars just yet. I work on a lot of minis and have only had to do 2 head jobs. They are also a quick job, which translates to cheap (compared to a head job on most cars).
