I love this board. I'm so used to being one of the "old farts" on the crx board (I turn 35 next month). Of course, I am also one of those aholes who has the ungodly exhaust and some silly mods, but life's too short to worry about what everyone else is driving.
I'm a tax accountant for a design house, though it's in New Jersey, so no glamour on this end.
From what I've read, the MINI is being marketed to 3 different demographics: young hatch buyers, 30-40 year olds who want something practical and fun, and old farts who remember the Mini's good old days. I'll leave it to each of you to determine where you fit in.
