It was put together by the newest friend to MF/WRR, Oliver Seebach. Also happens that he was about the hardest working man at MINI United 2007. He did so much to help us out, we thought we would, again, return the favor.
We know there are about 10K – 15K of you reading this right now. We’re only looking for about 600 of you to help our friend Oliver out by taking this MINI related poll. Besides, US responses are outnumbered by just about every other country 2:1!
It only takes about 15 minutes. Follow the link below.
