I am not saying SWB is better, but it's definitely different - that's why I never got on with the Clubbie and why I am noticing a big change with the Countryman. SWB just feels tighter and more go-kart and sometimes a bit scary. LWB feels more controlled.

That's why I got my first MINI - having come from RWD little MX-5s I loved that the MINI still felt it was 'turning on a dime'.
Why should a car's size determine its handling?

I will be taken to task and shot at dawn for this no doubt but I test drove the new ST Fiesta a few months ago which is nothing like a Mini to look at but......and it's a big but..............the handling on that car is nothing short of superb!!!
