Hi, had my 2002 Mini One for 1 month now. Love it to bits.
2 very obvious design points though.
1. Although mine has the SALT pack and other goodies there is no glove box. Why does the centre consol that comes down to the floor not have end pieces either side to stop anything you have put there from falling out? I have made end pieces from Depron foam and sprayed it silver. Neat job, esp as i added some black carbon fibre rod for an extra snazzy look.
2. Boot space; half of it is taken up with my toothbrush. Why, as i guess, Mini's rarely carry full sized adults in the rear, didn't Mini make the seat cushions shorter, move the rear seats up and create more boot space? Alternatively, transfer this idea onto a roller mechanism allowing flexibility of boot space vs rear seat space.
Anybody else though this or other, "why did they do that?" things?
