Who makes the best 2002-later mini Cooper kit? Fujimi or Revell?

It's all in the title. I'm looking for the best looking Mini Cooper kit.

I've only built the Revell:

It's a decent kit of the base Mini, nothing special, but it goes together fine. The toughest part as I recall is getting the black window surrounds to look right.

I've got an unbuilt Fujimi Cooper S on the shelf, so I looked it over last night. The basic idea is the same as the Revell, but I'd agree the Fujimi is better - more detail, crisper engraving - but it's also at least twice the price, so I think it depends on your intentions and budget.

Fujimi is better. I find some of the details on Revell's molding quite soft. The dashboard, the head lights and the tail lights in particular don't look quite right.
