Best of the Mini Coopers?

I just drove four Mini Cooper S models: Roadster, Convertible, Clubman and Hardtop. Of course all have a family resemblance when behind the wheel. My observations from a quick drive were that the Hardtop and the Clubman were more responsive but almost twitchy. The soft tops seem essentially as fun (especially compared to other cars). I also thought the ride quality on the soft tops was better. The Convertible doesn't have the stiffest chassis, though, so there is some vibration on bumps (not uncomfortable, but noticeable). So, I actually liked the Roadster the best. But that is from very limited driving. Your thoughts?
