I knew the 2.0L would be very close to mini. So we take off on feeder(no other cars) and I slowly pull on him. It's clear he won't catch me but he refuses to let off. So after passing him I slow down and let him on his way. It was funny though an 40+K audi getting beat by a little mini.
One thing though the mini died at 6krpm's where you get used to the M3 just warming up at 6K.
Yeah it's funny to watch peoples reaction after getting busted up by a Cooper. I've had a few experiences in the past 4 years. I'm on my second Cooper S and I'm definitely hooked. The CEO is thinking Countryman S next. If you haven't driven one go drive one. I can't wait to see the roadster
