Pssh, the Mini will retain its value alot more, I don't know about power mods though. I will say the Mini will run circles around in any autocross. Besides the mini is more of a luxury vehicle, while the MS3 is more of a hotrod....
good luck

I don't like the Mini's dashboard. Plus it seems like a ton of posers drive those cars, and guys who are going through mid-life crises.

MS3 FTW!!

I like small cars, but the Mini is just too small for me. MS3 is my vote

The 2007 Mini is turbocharged.

Per Schroeder of Grassroots Motorsports Magazine says that the Mini is the easiest car to drive fast he has ever driven.

Also- A local autocrosser, who has trophied several times at Nationals but has never won the whole enchilada, brought his new 07 Mini S to the autocross a couple of weeks ago. He was the fastest car with fenders (he beat Corvettes, Porsches, Modified Subarus...). If I could afford it there is no question which one I'd buy.
