to me. Seems like if you already have a pre '05 you like your front and if you get the '05 you like it. Not really a big deal to me either way. It's the car that counts for me and although it's made up of a bunch of little things I try really hard not to sweat the small stuff. It isn't easy though.Rennie said:I can't decide if I like the new 2005 front of the MC. I think it may have been "cuter" before (yeah, okay, I'm a girl ). What do you all think? Do you like the changes?
I do hope that they dun make radical changes to the car! I mean how do you re-invent the wheel? Such a great looking car - shld just leave it as it is, esp on the outside...Prowse said:I'm one for original designs, so yes, I prefer the first batch, but it's all personal taste.
I've seen some spy-shots of the MINI designs for the new turbo engines, and the design is, erm, challenging. Hopefully the finished product will be nice though.
The 2000-2004 MINI is a brilliant design because, whilst it shares little with the original, its like a brilliant characature of it. It's a bit like a cartoon of a politician where, although it may look like a rubbish drawing, the politician is immediately recognisable.cct1 said:I like the 2005 better. The grill is less busy; it just looks cleaner. The new mini IS modern, but with a retro look, so I have no problems with the changes from the "traditional" point of view. Besides, a 2005 Mini looks much more like a 2004 Mini than a 2004 Mini looks like a 1964 Mini, if that makes sense....
And I was all set to get the Aero Kit on my 05 MC until I saw the facelift and I really like the new bumpers so no Aero now , I think it really brings home how every MINI is something special to it's ownerBRMCooper said:i have a brand new cooper i like the new frount but not the rear so i got the full aero kit now it all looks the nuts problem solved
