I have owned a Mini for 2 years and owned and driven BMWs for 20 years, including the 335i. A Mini does not handle like a 335i or any other BMW above 30 mph and around any corner above 40 mph. It is a very good handling car for FWD, and might be the best handling FWD, but I can tell the difference blindfolded between the handling feel of the two cars and the RWD is a better handling and better feeling car, in my opinion. They are both fun to drive, as you say, but I prefer RWD.
