I'm new to this forum.. I live in South Africa.. Thinking about getting an ST..

Just wanted to know if anybody had taken on a Cooper S yet..?? And the result??

I live in Johannesburg which is at high altitude so the ST is going to lose 18% of its power so the Cooper S should really whoop the ST up here at Joburg coz it has the supercharger.. Just interested to know how bad I might get hurt..??

Despite having a supercharger the Cooper has a very dissapointing power output. Also, the high altitude will effect the cooper probably more than the ST.

well depends on what cooper s u get, bwn/mini do different types, like u can buy and upgrade for 360 to move it from 160bhp to 200-220 bhp and this is all out of a 1.6

on paper the copper s will beat the ST ahnd down, but its not the car it how u drive it

It's always worth a go, just for the fun

Very impressed with how the ST goes on the twisty roads, think it would give a few things a good run.

My sister has just bought a Cooper S. The power is actually 170bhp not 160bhp. Thought about having the Cooper works kit put on it but decided that the petrol consumption would be scary enough as it is. Nice looking cars I think but I still wouldnt pay over 17K for a car the size of a Mini.

I couldnt believe it when I saw how expensive the Minis were! I was at my local BMW dealership with my mum's 316 getting bits replaced and I nearly died!! Its bad enough my ST is costing me nearly 14K My dealership guy has told me he's taken the demo ST they have and said it has excellent cornering ability. A billboard ad I saw had a teeny pic of the ST in the corner with the logo "Loves corners"

The Cooper S would probably give the ST a run for its money on the bends as well although i think it would be close.
