There are many differences..........for a start the 2007 Convertible was still based on the 1st Gen/Mk1 R50 Mini whlie the 2011 model is based on the 2nd Gen/Mk2 R56 Mini.

This is because the hatchback upgrade to a Mk2 model happened a year or so before the Convertible got similar updates.

Which is best, base model new or older MCS?.........best to drive them both first, the earlier MCS will of course give more performance but use more fuel in the process!

huge differences . The 07 is a R52 and was released just before the model was revamped so there are a laundry list of things that were changed making the 08 a R53 which is far easier to upgrade/repair. At least that is what I have found being an owner of a 07 S convert. But do love my Cab.
