    Well I read it and all I could think was that a first year journalism major wrote it.

    How long do you think it will take some drunk college kids to rip off those fender extensions or whatever they call them.?

    That has to literally the definition of Lipstick on a Pig.

    Not the one above but the New GP 3.

    The new GP is being trashed on FB and other social media sites.

    It looks like MINI laid another egg.

    I just heard an interview with the new CEO or President (or whatever) of MINI and he did touch on getting back to what makes a MINI a MINI and he referred to the early years, 02' and 03', and what they're trying to get back to. He also expressed an interest in making new classics. Next MINI body style will tell how serious they are about getting back to early MINI years. Haven't seen any leaks yet though, but I'm hopeful. I'd love an R53 with a 2 litre! Or a classic with a 2 litre!

    I wish them success. Once the magic is out of the bottle it's hard to recapture it. Finger crossed......

    It is heavily... But, as we live in a Society of "Consumerism", half of them [USA] are already pre-sold. Only "because"... It could have been the ugliest and worse car ever, the result would have been the same...

    I read comments from the buyers and they don't care. To them it is "status", it is "look at me" I have the latest and baddest... You get the picture.

    Just as consumers camping on the sidewalk the night before when a new phone comes out for $1000+ while their present phone is perfectly sane!...

    Oh! well...

    I will be keeping my 18 JCW with its humble mods! I really don't want to stare at a digital dashboard and love my heads up display.

    That will be interesting to see. I think if they can do that well, there could be renewed interest from the long term MINI fans. When is the Gen 4 expected to come out? Anyone know?

    Well If I'm not mistaken they release the new body style after the GP is released, so next year?
