Mini Cooper windscreen replacement and automotive glass repair
Mini Cooper windscreen replacement
The quintessentially British Mini Cooper remains one of, if not the most popular cars in the UK over its long history dating back to 1959. The classic Mini Cooper has won numerous awards in the UK and abroad over the decades, but it has also drawn some criticisms as well.
There are two main halves to the story of the Mini Cooper: those that were built from 1959-2000 and those built from 2001 to today. The former Mini line was variously manufactured by British Motor Corporation, British Leyland, and ultimately by the Rover Group, whereas the latter Mini Coopers are manufactured by BMW. The signature design of the Mini Cooper hatch has largely retained many of the original Mini Cooper’s design principles, but the older models are now referred to as Classic Mini Coopers.
Interesting facts about the Mini Cooper
First and foremost, the naming convention of Mini’s recent lines can appear confusing. The 2022 BMW Mini line includes six models, each with various types of performance. The 3-door and 5-door hatch can be either Cooper or Cooper S in performance, as can the Clubman and Convertible models. The Countryman can be equipped with either Cooper, Cooper S, Cooper All4, or as John Cooper Works (JCW). The new Mini Electric is equipped with Cooper SE (electric) performance.
In essence, Cooper denotes the performance of the line and takes its name from legendary racing driver John Cooper and his father Charles Cooper.
Colloquially, most people recognise the early (pre-2000) Mark I-VII Minis as the classic Mini Cooper, although over a dozen other nicknames existed for the same line of cars. Today, the 3-door and 5-door hatch models are the successors and known as Mini Coopers.
The Mini Cooper, in all of its current variants, ranked second in February 2022 for new vehicle registrations in the UK and third place over the year to date.
