Europe Newbie, buying a Mini this month!

Hi all,

Been visiting this forum on and off for a long time now. Thought I'd finally register and introduce myself. I'm a 23 year old entrepreneur based in the Netherlands and I will be buying my first ever brand new car this month.

The Mini's been an obsession of mine since I was 10, and over the years I've watched the BMW line evolve and diversify (from the R50, to the JCW, to the Clubman, to the Countryman and now to the Coupe) - and my fondness for it has only grown stronger.

I would love it if some people could share their experiences and thoughts in relation to their Minis. I know I want it to be my first car, but the possibilities are limitless!!

I love the Cooper JCW. But I also personally really love the look of the Countryman. I love the idea of it being an all-wheeler, and the idea of it having more rear space. I also really love the Coupe, and although that would have probably been my first choice at this point, I have to realise that even though I have no family expansion plans (i.e, kids) anytime soon, since this would be my only car it could be awfully impractical to not be able to accommodate more than one passenger along with me.

So for all sorts of reasons, I'm currently torn between the Cooper JCW, the Countryman, and the Coupe JCW.

Would really appreciate just some general wisdom from people who've actually owned these cars and their experiences with them.

Lots of love
