It’s time for the launch parties and test drives. In fact dealers on the east side of North America have had several F56 delivered and we’ve heard more than a few readers have already gotten behind the wheel.


Here’s a quick sample of MF reader Sal and his first drive:

>I got to test drive my F56 Cooper S, last night. It arrived at the dealership early. It is unbelievably improved. It is a tighter more comfortable ride than the R56 S yet the engine is a revelation of refinement and power. I have owned two R56’s, an S hatch and a Clubman S. This is definitely a totally different car.

What about you? If you’ve driven or seen the F56 in person let us know your thoughts in the comment section below and don’t forget the photos.
