I'm the proud owner (since yesterday night) of a 2008 MCS
Clubman with the six speed manual transmission. It's my first Mini and, so far, I'm loving it. It's just the right size for my family. (wife and 2 kids) It's almost fully equipped with 36,250 miles. (58,000 kms) As far as I know, I'm missing the GPS, the backup sensors and maybe the LSD....I still have to check if I have it. Either way, I still can't believe I'm owning it. It was so fast. Here's a picture of it. I will have more coming soon.
