I was looking at the MINI Cooper website, and that is one interesting car. A little clown-car-ish, but I kind of like it. Now for the reason I pose this question...Seems that the doors are advertised as opening a full 80 degrees. I would think that would make getting into one really easy as you can get your chair right in line with the seat. I remember seeing one at the auto show when they first came out and thinking, wow, this car is pretty roomy inside. This car might be something to look into as well as your standard big ass 2 door coupe. Only thing that I dont like about it is the S model with the higher performing engine is only available with a manual transmission, so the car wouldnt be a good pocket rocket for a wheelchair user, but still an interesting ride nonetheless. Anyone check one of these out in person yet?
