iits not 210, its 200 hp, and i duno, if you have that money and like th emini its worth it, but you get an S, you can add s/c pulleys with 15% reduction thatll give you 15 hp for 300 dollars, so not really that worth it except warranty is untouched

If I bought the Mini I'd buy a Cooper S and upgrade just the engine to the John Cooper Works.

It's a lot of $ for an extra 20hp - 30hp or whatever it is.

you still don't have an LSD so even with the extra power you can't put it down ... so don't. just get the regular one buy the fogs; get the union jack on the top and get a plate that says gr8shag (austin powers:gold member)

the new MCS Works kit is 210bhp. the 200bhp version you are referring to is the old kit.

ya the new S with john cooper works has 210hp and it's about $37K, i think it has a very good power to weight ratio, which makes it very fast and agile!! and it's only 1.6L, the package includes an upgraded supercharger kit, rims, sport springs/shocks, exhust system, bigger brakes , comparing to a Z4, which has 240hp and goes for about $50-60K ...i dunno... i might go for a test drive!!!

You need to test drive the MCS and the MCS w/ the works package. Then you can decide if its worth the extra $. the MCS is awesome to drive, and IMO it has enough grunt considering the car is someone light.

BMW/Mini is having a promotion i believe which expires the end of March that includes the Works Package for 5k. instead of the usual $7500. if you were to get that pkg. after you purchase your MCS, it will cost alot more than 5k.
