    I’m pleased as punch to be 1 of 196 ;-)

    Looks like the Hardtop is reestablishing its dominance over the CM, particularly in light of the upcoming winter which should have upped the attractiveness of the All4. Could folks already be waiting on the sidelines for the PM?

      I don’t see how an increase in Countryman November sales of 13.9% and 27.8% YTD, compared to an inrease of only 4.5% and 3.8% respectively for the Hardtop, equate to the, “Hardtop re-establishing its dominance over the CM”?

      • Gary

        Unless I’m recalling incorrectly, I believe there were selected months this past year where the CM sales numbers in the U.S. were comparable to (or even exceeding) those of the Hardtop for that particular month.

          Correct. The Countryman surpassed or rivaled the Hardtop Hatch several months this year.

    What do people think the (relatively) low numbers for the Coupe and Roadster will do to their resale values? Planning my next build (for March 2013) and always thinking of the future.

    • Kurtster

      I thought about resale value for about 10 seconds. I don’t want the person who buys it after me to dictate what I drive today. I expect to lose a lot of money on it and hopefully drive it for a very long time. Then again, if they discontinue them, ten years later they might become one of the most sought-after Mini models among enthusiasts of this brand.

      • http://www.nathanielsalzman.com/ Nathaniel Salzman

        The way I look at it, all new cars are a bad investment, so I might as well drive something I love. I figure I can either afford something or I can’t, and so the resale value doesn’t really play into it for me. Then again, I plan to simply keep my MINI for as long as I can keep it going.

          Or buy it CPO.

        Kurtster, for my next Mini next year, I am thinking like you, who cares about resale, although Mini’s all hold up rather well in that department. As for an answer to some about the low sales of coupes and roadsters, I say good, that just makes it worth more to me in the future, as going to Mini events, or just driving around, you don’t see your car meeting you. Kind of nice to drive something unique, as a Mini is, and as the roadsters and coupes even more so. Have they built your coupe yet?

        • Kurtster

          Should be done tomorrow according to my MA and the 866 number. Fingers crossed that it’ll be here by Christmas or my birthday (which is the 29th).
