Its hard to say from that photo as the second one is a bit blurred. It does look like it might have changed design somehow... Anyone got a recent model that can take a photo? Or perhaps it is something just for the S?

Thats not the only difference either........how old is the bottom picture above ?. Have a close look at the center console.....behind the gearstick.

I have a thread on this subject somewhere. I think BruceK told me the twin knob version was pre-production and got changed to the single slide knob for the rear view mirrors ....

That is the same as my Cooper, I think the S might have additional knobs and switches there.. Perhaps that explains it :confused:

Hmmm.......heres a recent shot from one of the shows, and there's those knobs again. The person in the shot is even helpfully pointing at them. Other recent internal S shots show the same mirror controls as the Cooper......odd

That picture is brandnew, it's taken at the NAIAS by MiniMoke. The panel is different only in the fact that it's black. And those buttons on the left and right are the ones from the heated seats option.

Notice this: not only the outside lever is different, but the inside as well. From all I've seen so far is that those two are the same model. Does this means it's a real update, or is this USA only?

I believe the pre-production design is below. The knobs seem to be for the electric mirrors and for the headlight height adjustment(?) (later made automatic?)
