It's funny that when you bought your Mini you chose the Cooper S and not the plain Jane Cooper. Would you have been as happy with the base model and its 121hp vs. the upgraded S model with half again more hp at 181? Would you have been as happy with the base suspension, smaller wheels, etc.? It's all about the "build" choices you make....
