While the Mini Cooper coupe got a redesign for 2007 — and remains the same for 2008 – the convertible hasn’t gotten such treatment. That means the 2008s don’t get the new body, turbo engine and other tweaks; they’re similar to the models that debuted in 2002.

The convertible prices remain unchanged for 2008, starting at $21,950 for the Cooper and $25,400 for the Cooper S, not including a $650 destination charge.  A John Cooper Motor Works kit is a factory option for the 2008 Cooper S at $6,000, and the Sidewalk edition returns on both the Cooper and the Cooper S for $4,000. 

Prices for the 2008 Mini Cooper and Cooper S coupes also remain unchanged at $18,050 and $21,200, respectively. The 2008 convertibles are now on sale, the coupes go on sale in December and the all-new 2008 Clubman goes on sale in February 2008.
