Do it !

We just got our Sparkling silver/Black Mini Cooper S on Friday evening, with 17" wheels (web spoke) and Sports suspension. (It did take a few test drives and much thought to do this)

Its NOTHING like the previous generation with SS, and the ride is miles better than our previous Cooper on 17" wheels which didn't have SS.

I cant recommend highly enough going for it, it helps keep the car stable at higher speeds, but still seems wonderfully damped and comfortable.

Hope this helps someone Mini Speccin !

I have the same car without the SS. I found that the SS basically adds a 2mm thicker antiswaybar front/rear. I added a 19mm rear bar (SS is 18mm) for $300 usd and like it better than the SS that I drove. The front bar probably doesn't do much (you can't even get one aftermarket). But to each his own. If it works for you that's great. In the US the SS is a $500 option.

The dampers are also different with the Sport Suspension.
