Ask It: 2009 MINI Cooper S John Cooper Works Convertible

Mother Nature has just blessed us with 60 degree weather and sunny skies in southeastern Michigan, and right in time for that, we have just taken delivery of a 2009 MINI Cooper S John Cooper Works Convertible.

Our Interchange Yellow droptop is equipped with a 1.6-liter, turbocharged I-4 and produces 208 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. A sport button allows the engine to go into an overboost mode, allowing 207 pound-feet of torque for short bursts.

We will have it for about a week, so there will be plenty of oppurtunities to rack up hours on the Openometer. Let's hear your questions.
