2003 Cooper vs Cooper D
I have owned a 2003 Cooper for the last 2 and a half years and absolutely love it.
However, decided that the running costs were getting higher and things started to go wrong, but hey it was 9 and a half years old. I decided to splash out on a 2007 Cooper D. I read all the reviews that it lacks sportyness and was a bit gruff, however decided the mpgs and low tax was worth it.
Well, after 2 days I absolutely love it. The high torque gives effortless mid range power and it is so smooth. I drove a facelift Cooper before driving this and I much preferred the D.
For me it is better than the petrol, as a whole package. Just thought I would post to let anyone know who is thinking about going for a D.
