found out today that this car is about 50 lbs HEAVIER than the regular mini due to the fact that this one is built on the cabrio chassis. BLAH.

I have had two R53's and a R56. Great cars and very good on the track with some negative camber up front and a nice big rear sway bar.

Had a lot of hope for the Coupe being able to shed some major weight and be MINI's light weight fighter...but doesn't look so promising now. It is a bold look for sure, too bad it is not coupled with bold "lightness". :(

Guess that's why I have the 2006 Elise though:)

My wife and I used to both have modded R53s... That's how we met actually. Now I have the Exige, and she has a Cayman S... She wants to add one of these MINI coupes to our stable.

I think we will all get used to the look. It's different for sure. But odds are we will get one to re-live our R53s and the fun of front wheel drive...

I may start "adding lightness" to it though.... Heh...
Cheers,
Skottoman
