I am hoping you can help me with some information about model configuration as sold in Canada.
I see you are one of few Maritimers on the forum. I am looking at a 2007 Mini Cooper and was hoping a fellow Canadian could clear up some confusion.
From my reading the distinction between the Cooper and the Cooper S for 2007 models is as follows:
The Cooper S has a supercharger, battery in the rear and is equipped with run flats and has no spare tire
The Cooper has 118hp/1.6L, battery under the hood (close to the firewall), has a spare (either inside or underneath the car) and is equipped with conventional tires.
For the car I am looking at, the seller says there is no spare, but the battery is in the front--is this possible or have they just not found the spare tire?
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.
