I think Josh feels the same way about the new mini as I do about dropping a 327 into an E type.

How do you really feel? Seriously, some people are gonna love the "BMW" version and some are going to hate it and some are going to no care one way or the other.

You British car folks are CRAZY! graemlins/crazy.gif

The new Mini is quite nice with BMWbuild quality and safety. I would not buy a "British Mini" but I would buy the BMW Mini and I'm not a BMW fan. I've taken a good look at the new Mini and it's a nice little go cart in the same tradition as the original Mini S.
