I'm quite the opposite, I had an R56 S and my '08 135i at the same time and after a week of straight driving the Mini, then getting back behind the wheel of the 1, the 1 felt like a big luxo coupe. The mini driving dynamics is amazing: go-kart like handling, good acceleration (mine was chipped with full dps/catless exhaust) and it was a hoot to drive everywhere.

I'd only consider giving up my 1 for a JCW Mini hatch not convertible.
