nope, made by BMW. its got all the BMW "this should help you not kill yourself" electronic controlls. its got one of the most advanced abs systsems, dsc, and god knows what else. plus its got that re-enforced frame and probably hundreds of pounds of electrical mumbo jumbo under the dash.

I wanted to get a Mini Cooper S for like a beating around car but then I realized they were CRAZY expensive. Still look like the most fun you can have with a FWD car.
