    Very nice indeed. You do not notice the odd roof shape (which I don't care for) in that set up. :Thumbsup:

    Nice! Kinda defeats the purpose with the lowering, but it looks sweet! :Thumbsup:

    I'm due an oil change tomorrow, so I will get a chance to see my first Countryman up close. Looking forward to it, as my wife really wants one. Of course her getting an "S" will be hard to swallow. Funny how that works. :Thumbsup:

    Oh I have to have it lowered! Still haven't made up my mind on all4 or fwd. I've wanted a MINI for years but it was not practical. I needed the 4 doors so now it's here. I want it as close to MCS stance as possible.

    The S is like a necessity. I couldn't imagine pulling a 2700 lb vehicle with 120hp... I can never go back to a NA vehicle, it has to be boosted! I sat in them and I think you'll like em. They retain the same feel as ur Cooper now just bloated a little. I'm 6'6 and 320lb so I was shocked at the amount of room my friends had sitting behind me after I was comfortable. Take some pics!:) lol

    From Motoring file the weight of the Countryman is 2937 and I think that was just after a trip to the bathroom and standing naked on the scales .....

    S would be the only way to motor in this one... ;)

    I found it to be 3100 for an S all4.. Still that's lighter than what I have now with relatively similar power outage.
