Of course if the race was over 350 miles or more, then a Type S 2.2 would beat both a Type R or a Cooper S, since they would have to refuel.

Of course my 192 SGT would leave the Cooper in the dust, and surprise the Type R I think on most normal roads.[smilie=cheeky-grin:

the cooper s has less understeer, the tail "lives" -> cornering is more fun... (dunno what the time says if it's really faster)

cooper s (tgdi) has more tourq also wich presses you in the seats ;-)

Hello there everyone.
I hope Christmas was good with lots of presents.
Silly question for you.
Mini Cooper S verses a Type R:
Who is going to win and for what reason?
Cornering maybe?
Performance maybe?
What's your verdict?
Speak to you all later guys
Chris
I think this is the translation.
Ive not found 'Chav' in any translation software...Yet ;)
BTW lad.......We dont post 'text speak' on here.

chav

Hey what is it with people today ?
Why not just reply to the thread or just ignore it if its to CHAVVY 4 YA .
For petes sake the little things that get under peoples bonnets.
Was there any reason other than putting me off civic info and BASIC snobbery. And the fine art of being judgmental .
Forums are for me fun ?
I am not a snob/nor a chav/ just a normal married man 4 kids & a honda civic.
Sorry ?

Hi Chris,

Sorry, no insult intended. Please don´t be put off.
Yes, forums are for fun (and other things too)!

But please note that the forum rules do ask us all not to use text speak.

Well you’re going to get a biased view asking for views on a civic forum. I have tried both the Type R and the Cooper S and I get occasional use of my mum’s mini one. I think the main differences are:

The Type R is better than the mini in these areas:
- Engine / gearbox is much more fun to use
- Practicality - true 4 seater and a boot that is 4 times as big
- Hondas reputation for reliability is much better than the mini

Mini Is better in these areas:
- Easier to park
- Engine has more torque at low revs if you prefer this (I don't)
- Some may prefer the styling

The Mini is good as a second car, but if you need practicality as well as fun the Type R wins.

Hey Chris we were only joking!!! If you stick around you'll find we really are a friendly bunch and will appreciate your input. Sorry if you were offended.

It is however very hard to read posts in capitals expecially if they are long ones and some folk won't bother, which is a shame especially if it's something worth reading. :(
