The November issue features the new M5 (if only I had $100k burning a hole in my pocket;) )...but also has a fun article called New Britannia...What has foreign ownership done for the great British marques? A lot, it turns out.

The article features the MINI Convertible, the Land Rover LR3, Aston Martin DB9, Bently Continental GT, Jaguar XJ8L, and Rolls Royce Phantom.

Conclusion: "The MINI (sic), meanwhile, looks and goes like an idealized version of the very British original, except for the fact that it is dramatically more reliable. Carry on, BMW."

Hear hear!

Check the article out, it's a good read, especially the M5 review. If I ever win the lottery, I'm gonna become an automotive journalist...

P.S. a good interview w/ Frank Stephenson (Mr. MINI designer) -- The Best Car Design Job in the World
P.P.S. a short review of the BMW and Alpine iPod solutions...the Alpine wins (barely)
