Having owned a Saab 9-3 for a bit, I'm curious how bad the 'torque steer' is in the Cooper S. Since I won't be able to test drive one of these badboys for a LONG long time, any comments much appreciated.

Original Austin Morris Cooper S? Pretty darned bad - I reckon on a two-foot jump sideways every time I scream away from traffic lights on the redline.

The new MINI? (Which is what I reckon you're on about) - should be nil - at least according to BMW. The equal-length drive shafts and ASC-T ought to see to that.

I agree, equal length shafts should do the trick!:D

heys amigos!! there should be NO torque steer since BMW made both shafts the same length and they state that there is none?!! We'll see when it arrives here.
