    Mini copper vs Mini copper S

    I also ordered a new Mini copper (non S version). I choose the base model not because of money issue, But call me crazy, I find the non S version more fun to drive.

    I driven both the S and the non S, The first and most noticable difference is the staight line performance, well thats quite obvious espeically one is supercharged Until I really push to the limit in a tight twisty roads, I find the 'softer suspension' of the base model make the car more enjoyable to toss around, I really didn't like the supercharged engine and even though the N.A. engine is abit lack of power, it is much more reponsive than the S.. another word I find the non-sport version sportier in my opinon.. hahaha.. I guess I can still have some fun with the base model mini when I drive around town..

    Re: Mini copper vs Mini copper S

    Ciao William,
    I too have a Mini on order and due to arrive in 3 weeks, mine is a Cooper S, and strangely I felt that its handling was more responsive than the std. cooper that I previously tested.It's wonderful how lively the tail becomes once DSC is turned off, a really accomplished car!


    Hi Luigi...

    Good choice on getting the new mini Yeah, I agree the stiffer suspension do make cornering more responsive and 'much higher limit'... But I really like about the base model is the N.A. engine... I like the N.A. instant response on throttle and violent weight transfer with the softer suspension and smaller wheel will be my choice. I think the S model should be better for you in Italy, wider and longer twisty roads, but for hong kong is not Roads are small, narrow and twisty and to fully utilize the S model is almost impossible and not to mention those people with Porsche and Ferrari..

    I am sure both the S and non S have their plus and minus, who knows.. I might change my mind later on I am getting my Mini in Hong Kong by the way... if you had driven in hong kong roads, you will understand why I choose the base model instead of the S.. When will you mini be here?

    How about this one?

    A Cooper S with 195 HP.

    Re: How about this one?

    That's a cool S, too low for street driving in many areas, but I'd trade my Cooper for it. I have the optional Sport Plus suspension, which is standard on the S, it really gives excellent handling but a firm ride.

    Looks lower than my GT2!

    It would be great as a city car here in Milan.
    The added horses though could be tempting...

    Re: How about this one?

    I really like these tuned you bring me back my Idea to tune a Honda s2000 with a's for my wife you know.!
