Claud, I noticed in your sig that you traded the '08 335 in for the Mini. Any regrets so far in doing so? I am currently considering trading my 335 in as well and picking up a Mini. I have yet to take one for a test drive but plan to do so very soon.

Is there anything that you miss about the 335? Thanks for your input.

I can actually see trading a 335 for a CooperS. At speeds legal in the US, the CooperS is a phenomenally fun drive. I owned a 2006 CooperS convertible and loved it! It was simply fun, light, responsive, and quick! I also did European Delivery of a good friend's 2007 BMW 335Xi coupe. That was an altogether different experience. The acceleration from 95-125 was intoxicating! But, here in the US, we just don't get much chance to drive like that. For US roads and US speed limits, the Cooper is a great choice! Enjoy.

What other options/packages did you get?

Since I bought it, I have installed H-Sport adjustable 19mm rear sway bar, EBC Red Stuff pads and SS brake lines, NM short shift kit and cat back exhaust (ain't it purdy?) Sounds nice too.
