My parents are looking for a mini and are considering an automatic - does anyone own this or has driven one?

How does it compare to the manual?

I recently bought a Mini One auto for the wife.
I have been suitably impressed. it's a very drivable car both in Auto and
Semi auto its very responsive.
The only negative point is there seems to be a slight delay in pulling away, this is in bothforward and reverse, this leads to some hairy moments manoeuvring.

Just given back a One CVT 'courtesy' car, back into our BBR'd Cooper S. Thank god!!! Sorry, but I think the CVT box is woeful and ruins a perfectly decent car. www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?t=262010&f=164&h=0
