    Just got one for my wife. I find myself wanting a clubman everytime I drive her car. Very fun and perfect for taking our bikes to the trailhead.

    An update...

    We ended up getting her a BMW 135i, and I sold my Tacoma. I am driving the Cooper S, and we bought an older F150 to handle truck duties when needed.

    That is a sweet looking ride.

    Here are pictures of 2009 JCW with the MINI Fini sport link and a Kuat NV rack. Cost a small fortune but I have gotten a lot of good use out of it. I carry one or two bikes 2 to 3 times a week. Recently painted the wheels black. I had to break up all the pepper white.

    Can you visit with me about having a hitch rack on here? I've got a friend with a Clubman currently running a roof rack but she would sure prefer the hitch setup. Thanks in advance.

    Hi reed523, I keep replying to this thread and appears to not be working? Anyway, I still use this rack a couple times a week no problems or complaints. Any questions I might be able to help you with let me know.

    Looks like it's working fine Buster. Thanks. No specific questions just wanted to make sure there wasn't a problem running the rack on that car i.e. handling surprises, structural weaknesses, etc.

    No problems at all, if for not seeing it in the rear view mirror I would not notice it is there. I usually carry my full suspension 29er so that is close to 30 pounds. Sometimes I take a second bike a hard tail maybe closer to 25 pounds. No problems holds very secure. The Kuat NV bike rack has a anti rattle feature that really secures the rack into the hitch good. The MINI FINI portion is probably over engineered. It is a hunk of quality metal that looks good and no rust or faded paint yet. The part that sandwiches between the number and frame probably stiffens the car some but I do not notice in my day to day driving. Highly recomend.

    Cooper Folk,

    We've transplanted to snow country, and my 4WD Tundra will do most heavy duty hauling/transport, but can our 06 Cooper handle the snow OK? I would like to keep it as it's been problem free and I will admit, I actually like driving the thing.

    I don't see why not seeing as this gentleman at our local rallyX ran one:

    He did break it, but to be fair this was under pounding use, you'll never see that kind of punishment.
    If you got proper snow tires I'm sure it would be great in the snow!
