Both are available in January, but I don't know which one to get? I was considering the Cooper with Chilli, Air con and 17" wheels. If you spec the S up and Chilli with the same options, the totals are £1700 difference
with Chilli £1300
Manual Air con £630
17" (upgrade) £370
Cooper S £17595
with Chilli £1500
IB Blue MINI Cooper, IB Blue MINI Cooper S, Hyper Blue/Blue MCSC
The problem with the Cooper Cab(according to the reviews so far) is that it lacks a wee bit of power to shift the extra 100kg Cabrio weight around. We won't know for sure untill the 26th when us mere mortals can have a go.
Funny this I had the same problem cooper or Cooper S - and the spec of your Cooper was the spit image of mine, but today I rang my dealer due to the fact I was becoming depressed that the electric blus s would be going soon and that I would not have the performance grin much longer and to my delight was told that i could convert my Cooper Conv delivery of August 2nd to a Cooper S delivery for the very same day (will defer to sept 1st) - 54 plate now thats amazing - due to a spare car being around!!! how lucky can you get. So I have speced Cool blue with Chille pack and am now over the moon, its worth the extra cash, I have come to the conclusion cooper is a bit girly and everyone will have one.
I agree with you, the cooper conv could be a bit girly, the blokes conv will be the S. You've made my mind up now, I'm cancelling my September cooper conv and going for an S - sometime next year. By the way when I mentioned to my delaer what I was thinking of doing he suggested getting into a MCS hardtop now, whilst waiting for the S CAB, but I'm a bit worried about the depreciation hit, anyone any adivce, trade in values after 1 year etc...?
There was an article in Yahoo yesterday about a lady who spent something like L10k to paint her MINI pink. Don't ask me why a paint job cost so much.
Anyway, my opinion is, if one drives a car that doesn't look like everything else on the road (at least not here in America) why not go loud? I don't think it's a gender thing. I think it's a personality thing. Personally, I don't see anything efeminate about electric blue. But, as I mentioned earlier, I have 4 kids. What the hell do I know
