2008 MINI Cooper Clubman S 3dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Picked this up in Kansas city and drove it home 7 hours. It has amazing torque and cornering. Very comfortable for road trips, with firm seats and real lumbar support with the upgraded upholstery. It does have a very firm ride, and the sport package is only for masochists. I plan on switching out the run flats when they wear out with regular tires to ease the bumpiness. The roads here in Minnesota are bad. If you can find a twisty road it is sublime. I test drove all the varieties, and I think the Auto base is a bit underpowered. The Manual base is ok. Obviously the S in either version rocks. But switch the MPH over to the RPM gauge, as I hit 100 when passing without noticing.

Best Features

The look and feel of the car. It is a little rally car. The torgue boost is quite impressive. The cloth/leather seating is a great deal if you are building your own, as it includes color line and interior surface choice, usually running $500, so it is $500 over that. And it has Lumbar support.

Worst Features

Choice of run flats or performance tires on S to smooth out the ride. Put HiFi stereo back in performance package. Put On/Volume button on the stereo instead of down below. Make the controls a bit more intuitive. It needs more storage in center console. None of these are deal breakers. Love it.
