Greetings from St. Louis. We bought our '09 S Clubman 3 weeks ago after about a year of research and shopping. We drove BMWs a long time then went to Cadillac (Yes --we,re boomers). What a great and fun drive! Wife was skeptical at first, now can't get her out of the MINI. Looking forward to a great summer of Motoring. Hope to meet many of you. stevzoe.
