Yeah, $47k for a MINI is definitely a hefty chunk of change, but it's still $9k less than the 1er.
I honestly can't believe that no magazines have done a comparison between the MINI JCW and 135i. They are both in the same price segment and both small cars so it's pretty surprising. Obviously, would love to see a 2013 Boxster vs. 2013 135i Convertible vs. 2013 MINI JCW Roadster comparison!!
