I’m not saying that I’ve made up my mind, but if I were going to order another Cooper S it’d probably look like this. It’s what I think is the perfect blend of nice options and economical restraint. It’s also a spec aimed more at comfort than performance.

  • Pepper White w/Black roof and bonnet stripes
  • 16″ wheels / all-season tires
  • Premium / Cold packages
  • LSD
  • Cloth seats, cream interior accents, piano black dash, interior chrome package
  • Sat Nav (pricy, but it cleans up the center stack very nicely)
  • Driving lights, rear fogs

See the full spec in the MINI Configurator (note: won’t work in Safari)
