Mini Cooper s JCW R56?

Hi,

I have test driven a JCW Roadster at dealership today, the little 1.6 turbo surprised me, pull pretty well. Of course not to comparing to the 335i that I have currently go.

I think its not bad for a small hatch, feedback from the steering is quite good, especially after activating Sport Mode.

I am thinking whether to sell my 06 plate 335i for a mini jcw 08+ or should keep the bmw.

Any opinions are welcome and much appreciated

Cheers
Sam

The camel is sweet. Although a camel should not be so thirsty, my camel is hyper thirsty and fun to drive around town
