New Car: Cooper v Cooper S
I'm new to the whole Mini thing and I've been doing my research, however, I wanted views from actual Mini drivers rather than an editorial in a magazine or online.
I'm due to be buying a Mini and I really can't decide whether to go for the standard Cooper or the Cooper S. I'm not a massive petrol head but I do like the body shape of the S rather than the standard hatch.
Apart from the obvious (S has higher insurance, tax, etc) what are the real differences. Specifically on cost? Is it really worth paying the extra for an S?
For example I was told the other day that the cost of replacing a tyre on the S was a lot more.
Any feedback would be great.
