Swarms everywhere.. it's because we are the enlightened ones who know how good they are!
Seriously though, as all MINIs are born here then that extra affinity obviously helps sales with the locals. I know I always love to see a transporter full of them on the Ring Road.
I'd have thought the high proportion of students also give it ideal demographics for ownership around here as well. A lot of students seem to have seriously more wealth than when I had my time! I had to make do with a pushbike and Young Persons Railcard! And we lived in a septic tank and would eat cold gravel. Tell that to students today, and they don't believe you!
