I had Sunroof & Auto AC on my old MCS , & now Sunroof & Manual AC on the New MCS .
Given the choice I`d go for Sunroof everytime particulary in the UK where its only really stuffy a couple of days of the year.
I only got AC this time as it came inc` with the MCS`s Chilli Pack, how much extra is it on the Cooper ??
:)

... Been Driving around today with the Roof open Again ... ITS GREAT :D

I've got both and i'm well pleased with it.

The a/c is probably worth it for the extra resale value if nothing else.

Sunroof is just awesome, probably the best option i've got on the car :cool:

I stopped using my AC all together once I realize how much it slowed the car down.. can't imagine NOT having it though.. need it for those muggy, rainy days. I love the sunroof!

AC is a must for resale. I didn't order a sunroof as I never used it in my old car, and also it spoils the look of the white contrast roof.

It's a very personal thing really. Resale / chances of selling compared to the next car would dictate getting aircon (if that's a concern) and sunroof, well, just depends if you like it or not.

I've gone for manual A/C only as I really like the cool comfort you get on hot or even warm days, especially if I ever have to wear a suit in the car... sticky....

Sunroof......I got sunroof and dont really see point of AC if you have it as it defeats the object.....open roof = pants AC. However if your going to be stuck in traffic a lot get AC too as if it warm not much air gets in roof!

Hope this helps but defo sunroof! Never be without one again!

Both!!!

Sunroof is fabulous, best option I ever got.
A/c is very good for very hot days and winters when the inside gets all steamed up :)

I had to make the same choice on both my MINIs,I chose the sunroof on my 03 and when ordering my 05 i initially decided to go with aircon instead,but then we had a few nice sunny days and with the sunroof open on my 03 i realised that i'd miss the sunroof so i swapped the spec.The other thing that changed my mind was that i had a MINI ONE courtesy car without the sunroof and it seemed alot smaller inside without the extra light from the sunroof.I couldn't afford to have both along with everything else i wanted so i had to choose ,i haven't regretted it although on the odd occasion we have a really hot day and even with the windows down and roof open its not getting any cooler i'll be thinking 'aircon would be nice'.

From a re-sale POV get A/C. More prospective buyers will go for this than just a sunroof.
Used buyers expect/prefer as a minimum A/C, CD player/changer & alloys. Anything else is bonus.

I've gone for both... in my (soon to be ex) Audi I have aircon and now I wouldn't be without it, for my MCS (arriving friday) getting aircon was therefore a Definite must-have.. and i decided to get for the sunroof as well as it makes the car feel bigger/lighter inside.... mind you now I've read these posts about how wonderful it is to drive around with the sunroof open I'm even more glad i went for BOTH...

Its alright everybody saying both but not everybody has limitless funds available,wasn't the question air con or sunroof?
edit note: i'll get my coat,i've just read the question again.

Both, but I'm probably in the minority here as I'd lose the sunroof first ...

My journey is mainly in traffic until I hit the motorway, sunroof not good in traffic and too blustery on the motorway.

A/C solves both in my mind

I went for aircon.

Don't like sunroofs - you hear horror stories of leaks, and they must soften the shell a bit.

I rarely have the aircon on apart from clearing the screen these days as I usually have the window down to listen to the exhaust burble.
