There's a MINI discussion going on over at the US-centric (and usually quite good) MetaFilter.com. Thread here.

Be warned that it doesn't make for very encouraging reading. Apparently, it's tiny ('hey, it's just as small as a new Beetle!'), looks less-than-macho, will kill you if you so much as look at a wall, is slow, and costs a small fortune. And that's the good stuff.

Not all Americans are as enlightened as our friends and colleagues here, it seems.

Interesting reading. They are kind of lost without a compass, aren't they? :p

Almost as many....ummm.... ahhh......uninformed posters :rolleyes: as on the Roadfly board.

It's amazing that these posters can have such an opinion regarding a car that most have not seen in person and probably none have driven one. Most of the comments are positive but a few people seem relatively clueless. A few people mention the WRX. Nice engine and drive train, hideous styling (mostly). Even if I could get over the styling I just can't bring myself to buy a Subaru.:eek:

I'm waiting for the MINI. 7 days to my dealer's launch.
Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!
