Another newbie introducing themselves. Just picked up a 05 plate Cooper S. Pictures to follow. Sold my motorbike (Triumph Speed Triple) but still feel the need for speed hence the Mini. Looked at various other options like the Honda type R (old shape), TT, S3 etc but the Cooper S just has something about it. Owned 4 mini's in the past (old ones). Had a good squirt about this afternoon and I am very, very impressed. The King is dead, long live the King.
