Hi, I am a big MINI fan and new member to MINI2, and need your help for my product study report on the MINI, that I need to complete as part of my A-level Product Design coursework. I have produced a questionnaire, which I would really appreciate responses to, in order to help me to get a quality result. It shouldn’t take long and would be a big help to me.

If you contact me by e-mail at [email protected] I’ll send you an Excel attachment that you can easily fill in.

As an alternative, I have put a copy of it in a slightly different format below, so that you can reply answering in the forum as described.

To do it this way:
·Put the question number followed by the letter of the answer that you want to give for each question, eg. 1a 2c…
·Where there are two answers, just put the two letters after the question number in the correct order, eg. 4gb.
·Where there are written answers, please type them after the relevant question.
·For question 7, where a score out of ten for each factor is given, can you put the question number, followed by each letter with a score number after it, eg. 7a7 b9 c10…

I think that covers everything, and thank you very much in anticipation.
