Hah!

I just couldn't stop myself, I just kept ticking the boxes and going through the options again and again.
Current Mini is specced pretty high, but always wished I had gone for the Cooper S for that bit more power - particularly for safe overtaking (not for the whizzing around fun bit you understand).
Took a Roadster S out, but decided to wait for the new Mini.
Went to the dealers on launch day and new I had to have one....

Mac, you thought about adding variable damper control with those 17" wheels ? People say it is brilliant if you want a more comfortable ride form time to time.

Well I asked about it at the time, and the guys at the dealers couldn't really give me a definite answer about the technical details so I decided to leave it off the list.
I elected not to spec run flats so the ride should be ok.
The test car I drove had the same wheels but with run flats fitted, and it thought the ride was pretty good. So hopefully mine should ride better....
