    In England, a “windscreen” is that big glass in front of the driver & passenger ;)

    How do they get to show the convert off before the launch ? what pull do they have over the other dealers .

    Ummm… I think that’s supposed to be Friday the 6th and Saturday the 7th… not the 5th & 6th. :)

    Pardon me if I appear to be underwhelmed.

    Sorry, but the Wind Deflector should be included with the car as a standard, not an expensive option! I don’t understand why MINI insist on charging extra for this essential piece of kit…..

    Oh, and I had my sneak peek preview last Saturday – Horizon Blue Cooper with Hot Chocolate roof and brown leather interior – a bit of an acquired taste! At least the Horizon Blue looks interesting (like a deeper Cool Blue maybe…)
