Purely for design...... difficult to believe the shape of the mini would cause any aerodynamic problems at terminal velocity. From this angle the spoiler looks great. This was the shot that sold me on the car. Boot's (spoiler) and all.
Yes! This picture that OnlyS4me took shows exactly why the angle is different.Red & White Cooper 2 said:The roof spoiler was one factor which put me off the Chili pack, but it seems appropriate on the S. Is this spoiler the reason why the radio aerial is now more upright than before?
Let's hope it won't be many, but I've all ready seen a Cooper S look-alike body kit.smiffy said:My sister has the problem with the aerial & spolier on her Peugoet 206, & some owners have said the aerial is damaging the paintwork. I prefer the Chili spolier my self. i wonder how many Cooper S 'wannabe's' will have the S spolier fitted to the MINI

As Kraftwork saidMINIAC said:should be deletable for those of us who don't like it.
The 125 mph Cooper doesn't need a spoiler, so if it's a safety feature on the 'S' you only need it going faster than this. If you drive at these speeds on US roads you're nuts, and if you get caught you're most likely going directly to jail.
Just like the Audi TT, another car's looks "spoiled".
Good photo.BruceK said:

I second that idea as there is an option on the M3 and M5 to remove the rear spoilers, and those two cars can go much faster than the SMINIAC said:should be deletable for those of us who don't like it.
