Mini drivers who want to go fast will appreciate the tuner package on the 2006 Mini Cooper S Convertible with the John Cooper Works Kit, but they will have to be really dedicated to stomach the price tag. Beyond some extra horses and torque, driving with the top down on this convertible Mini can make for a particularly exhilarating ride.
Other than the engine kit and the powered convertible top, this car isn't much different from the 2006 Mini Cooper S we reviewed earlier this year. This one also has a premium Harman Kardon audio system, but it lacks navigation, which is available as an option. There is also a nice array of dealer-installed options available, which weren't on our test car, including an auxiliary audio jack, iPod integration, a six-CD changer, and Bluetooth cell phone integration.
