Hey, so has anyone else heard about '08 MINI shortage?

Sounds like with gas prices increasing, more people are looking to buying/ordering MINIs.

Case in point, I went to MOP last week and they barely had any MINIs there (new or used). It is quite interesting!

Hard to find, and ordering new in the US is likely to be a long wait :cool:

I also read the other day that there is a waiting list of 30,000 - thirty thousand!!!!! - for the SMART Fortwo. They say more than 9 months wait.
It is amazing what $4.20 per gallon will do.
And MINIs were already the second best car for resale value - the Mercedes S-Calss was top but you won't see many people buying them to save gas ;)
