Hi. I am considering trading in or selling my 04 Mini CVT for an 05 Mini S. I know I have to test drive one but am wondering how I will adust to the stiffer suspension. Is there really that much of a difference? Thanks.

Having owned both a Cooper (16" performance runflats, standard suspension) and now a Cooper S (16" all-season runflats), in my opinion there is very little difference in the ride. Maybe just a hair more firm in the S but not enough to care about however the ride with the 17s is more punishing. If you're concerned about the ride, I'd go with the 16s.

If you are worried about the stiffness of the ride, stay away from the 17"wheels.
