    MINI has released 131 Official Spy Shots of the new 2012 Coupé. I have to wonder, are they really spy shots when they are from MINI?

    Me thinks that the "toupee" roof is so universally disliked that they've decided to keep the cladding on the production models with the hope that no one will notice it. :ihih:

    That looks like it might be the JCW variant. Does that mean the Cooper S model will sit 10mm higher?

    Kinda like the debates on the Countryman, they sure seem to sell all they have at our dealerships. :)

    I'm sure it will grow on us or you. I'm looking at this for 2012 or the next year. Depends on what happens with the Alfa Romeo 4c. :drool
