I also found out that at the smaller local auto shows, BMW dealers around town get together and share the cost of the booth space. Since very few dealers were awarded the Mini dealership, they can't in good conscience bring the Mini in and flaunt it when the people they're sharing with can't sell it. My dealer also said he's got twice the people on his list as he has cars so there's no need to advertise. I did want to see it again though. Guess we'll have to wait until March 22 when they're in the showrooms.
