I have the same issue you do, I love the MINI, but the new GTI is gorgeous!! I personally think you should drive both and if money isn't an issue, go with your instinct! The cooper has amazing handling, but if you are looking for a better everyday car, the GTI would be your best bet. The JCW mini is very torquey and not as smooth as the GTI. Decide for yourself!!

The company who will add the 50-odd HP and similar torque numbers to the 2.0l VW/Audi turbo motor is APR: http://www.goapr.com/Audi/whyapr/index.html
It is a software change only to the engine control unit.
