As you're new to the forum you won't know my story regarding the previous F56 Cooper D I owned, however long story short I rejected that car as it kept breaking... Petty little things but was holy annoying!

Anyway, after MINI FS had decided they would take it back I went to test drive the Audi A1 Facelift (1.4TFSI and 1.6 TDI)... Immediately felt like I'd lost all quirky character and cool factor. The Audi's steering was numb and lifeless and changing gear was just boring, it didn't entice me to drive it fast or show its playful side.

I did own an A1 S-Line 1.2 TFSI when the original was launched which I loved as it was my first car, although after having three MINI's since then... I don't think I could go back to an A1. The power just isn't there in the engine options and well I don't think Drive Select is as effective as the MINI Excitement Package.

I'd be lost without my Sport mode, the steering just isn't heavy enough without it.
