    What's the sticker price on one?
    I heard they they won some design award...they're damn nice cars too, probably great gas wise, and Tiny Cars>Big Cars in any city.

    VW Golfs are still nicer. :p

    I've never even seen one.... but I know I'll be sold with the BMW handling and the super small design on the corners. Thats if I can get my hands on one.

    I think this is a different thing than the new beetle, just feels better inside my heart. Got that "I don't look like anything but wait till you drive me feel"

    the type S has 163 hp - more than my friends bottom of the line camero, but like 1/10 th the size. It would smoke his car :)

    Don't know if I like the centre speedometer though

    P.S. Base Sticker Price is around 25 G's - not all that cheap I'm afraid

    there's a really neat showroom for the Mini on King just west of Spadina. There are about 8 cars inside on the hard wood floor showroom -- you can test drive them on the mini race track upstairs.

    I saw 2 back2back on wednesday night, they looked pretty night, they're also not as small as the original, I didn't know they were 2tone the roofs are a differnet colour. I saw a baby blue one with a white roof and a grey one with a black roof... For the money why not just settle for a VW or Honda,

    *note to buyer. Never buy the first year of a new model. think of it as beta testing.

    Anyone who likes it a whole lot and has a marketing/communications background - they're looking for someone.
    Saw it at marketingmag.com/careers and workopolis too - and i'm sure it's at the mini site too
