Smile 2009 cooper base vs 2011 cooper S


I currently looking to buy a car from 2 private sellers, 2009 cooper base_30,000 miles vs. 2011 cooper S_63,000 miles. They are both white with brown leather seats which I specifically adore. They are asking similar price range, though the cooper base is asking too much based on KBB standard. I prefer the classic look of the cooper base than the sporty look of cooper S. The Turbo speed isnít an important factor for me.
Could you pls share your insight about these two cars and despite my personal preference what would be a better purchase between them?

Thank you

Without wishing to offend, neither, the generation 2 petrol's are piles of shyte. If you want a strong car then your best bet is a facelift Cooper or S from 2004-2006 (Generation 1) or if you prefer the shape and looks of the Generation 2 then I'd be looking at a diesel if you don't mind paying the £20 road tax (if your in the UK)
