Anyone know when & where we will see the first actual report of an actual test drive of an actual Cooper S in the motoring press???

I'm getting bored of the same old same old, no new news...:(

The U.S. Press Event for the Cooper S is not till May or June (TBD). The press event for the U.S. spec standard Cooper model is coming up in March.

S review

I can't understand why no specialised mags like EVO haven't yet been allowed to (if not fully test) at least drive the Cooper S. Think of the pre-orders that would have followed! Many people are still not aware of the S's existance.

Does this point to teething problems that are taking a long time to solve ??? :confused:

I'm sure the U.K.'s and Germany's media (automotive magazines) will get to test the Cooper S' a little earlier than the rest of the world's.

The US press launch (drive and intro) is March 8-10th, right between the MINI sales and parts training. I'll be there the 5-13th, and all of the US Motoring Advisors will go through the training around that time. We should have a lot of new info after that, I hope;) :D

Thanks for replies to my opening question:)

Paul, what day, exactly, in March - I need to make a note to check MINI2 for your full debrief, photos, etc.;)

Presumably, monthly car mags won't get it to press until April issue at earliest...?
