    It's Dave.O depressing the market with all his cynicism. Otherwise everyone would think they were beautiful. Way to destroy capitalism and a cherished brand, Dave.

    Take a closer look folks, the new F56 Hardtop is the only MINI product where the June sales aren't in the tank*.

    They are all - how can they not be in the tank. Oh maybe because they sold them to dealers to test drive but not sell to customers because of "issues".

    Sales are down for every model. MINI had been making the excuse about F56 production still ramping up, but they can't say that about other models.

    Meanwhile, the auto industry as a whole is doing well: June 2014 Car Sales Still Simmering -- Yahoo! Autos

    Are GM's #'s being adjusted due to almost every car sold since 2008 being recalled?

    If the Federal Government investigates General Motors for all the recalls and finds GM is at fault will they fine themselves since they bailed them out and OWENED GM stock?

    Over the last year I have been by the MINI dealer twice, all of there inventory has been Countrymen and Pacemen they have around 40 of those and one coupe or s on their lot. And they wonder why sales are down. :rolleyes:

    MINI is marketing to hipsters..... But the thing is.... Hipsters don't use cars.... Their ride is the fixie.... MINI never should have abandoned their work with the MINI scooter... That would have been the perfect move to lure hipsters to the marque...

    Most of those MINI's are owned by the dealers for loaner use. Yep that must be it. The coupe & roadster really tanked.
