    Today's QOTD on Jalopnik is "What's The Most Outrageous New Car MSRP?" Just for fun, I loaded a JCW Convertible to the gills. Total Price was a hair over $60k. :eek:

    MINI has been steadily raising the prices of their cars since they hit these shores and to me they've already passed the price/value point of no return. I bought a brand new Clubman S in '09, (ordered, with very little equipment to keep the cost down, plus I got a decent discount) but either I'll be keeping it "forever" or my next MINI purchase will be used. They've priced me out of their new car market I'm afraid....

    I was hoping that the introduction of several new competitors in the tiny car field would make them compete a little harder, but it looks like the others are going to try and follow MINI's marketing strategy and price themselves in the so-called premium small car bracket too.

    I like the Clubby so I'm just planning to keep it very long term now.
