Default Roadster road noise - 27th May 2014, 09:55 AM

My mrs has to travel once a week to here head office instead of when she could be bothered,she has a mini one now which she loves but the 400 mile round trip will kill it eventually,I was wondering what the road noise was like in a roadster sd, when I had my coupe I traveled back up north from London once a month and the travel wasn't that bad part from the run flats,any help would be good thanks

only dead fish go with the flow

It's the runflats that will be noisy. Swap them out and the road noise will half.

But a Roadster is still significantly more noisy than other types of Mini, hood up or hood down - indeed the extra noise hood up over my previous Convertible is noticeable. Quiet and peaceful, it ain't, if you have a high cruising speed.
