    My wife bought a R56 Diesel clubman Cooper with nearly all the toys about 5 years ago and what a brilliant wee car
    Excellent on fuel excellent to drive and what a workhorse, even I was sad to see it go but she replaced it with the newer f54 sd 190 JCW spec with literally all the toys apart from a heated screen and wow absolutely awesome car I canít fault it and what a sound system Harmon kardon wow
    My own car is now parked up in the garage and not really drove it for ages now since her swapping

    Depends on what mileage your doing I think but the torque of those engines are pretty impressive in all gears

    Good luck
    One think to check and I was none the wiser 5 year ago is

    The blood bag (adblue) will need changed at or around 80,000 miles
    Bit of a cost at the stealers or do it yourself like I did, only problem I had was one securing nut on the blood bag housing

    Only thing I paid out on that wee car in 5 years was

    Blood bag, full set discs pads and tyres

    Got mini service package thrown in so no cost there

    Good luck whatever you decide

    But me personally Iíd stick with diesel

    All the best
