  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    A modified design for the characteristic circular headlights make the hallmark front view of the new MINI 3 door, the new MINI 5 door and the new MINI Convertible even more powerfully expressive.

    Taillights are still too big and the Union Jack is ugly. The front of the car is still too long and flat, looks like a duck bill. Oh and that lower front bumper is still a fish but is looking a little better.

    Need normal smaller taillights, and the front still needs the flat bull dog face not the duck / platapus look. :lol:

    I wish the europeans would get rid of that silly pedestrian law!

    Yea the law is severely limiting design IMO.. understand why it’s there but basically all cars look the same from the front..

    This is the downside of having done it right the 1st time.

    There are many other cars that come here with pedestrian friendly faces that don't look like the New New MINI. I think they have improved it some, but they still have work to do. Justa one old farts opinion.

    The MX5 ND passed everything & still managed to look like a well-evolved Miata.
