    Saw this today...

    They still have parts for Classic Minis. Just no more BMW MINI stuff.

    That's sucks but then again they were way over priced.

    Guess with mini/bmw fragmenting the market with so MANY different models, they decided the AVERAGE END USER is more likely a soccer mom/i-phone toting hipster ( the NON-MODDING...NEVER CHECK YOUR OIL TYPE)than an accessory buying enthusiast who spends $$ on their car....
    Their recent deals did look pretty good, but their pricing was always just slightly lower than mini mania....meaning, imo, far to high to do more than a small volume of sales from folks who didn't/couldn't look elsewhere......
    Still sad to see one less company selling stuff for a brand that is SELLING MORE VOLUME.....just tells you something about the current MINI buyer.....

    Sorry to see any business (or portion thereof) go, but this was coming for a long time.

    The only thing Barry should worry about is outliving his rag of a magazine.

    I'm glad for Aaron down in Knoxville. I hope he gets a bump in sales from this.
