You wouldn't say that if you came into contact with some of the 1 series drivers around here!

:D

I like this concept though, considering the elements that tend to actually "make it", it seems pretty promising I think.
Ba-da-bing, ba-da-BOOM!

Not sure I like it. Now might be a good time to order a 2006, and start buying up some used 2002-2005 Coopers and Esses--just so I have a stockpile.

I realize that there are new European Pedestrian Target Practice regulations (how many Europeans get knocked over each year?), but I don't like the Chrysler Hemi style raised hood (shades of The Untouchables), and the retro gimcrackery.

My humble opinion--why mess with a good thing?

Not that many if they learnt to cross the road properly, unlike the "nails" Chav's in this country who think it is clever to do it :mad: (At this point I drop the clutch and blip the engine, just to test how "nails" they are, quite funny to see fear on their faces :D :D )

Its an interesting concept, the seatbelt arrangement is nice and easy to use, not sure about the front end treatment though :(

Isn't the front how the new Mini is going to look? Seems a lot like the spy shots I've seen.
