The 2014 MINI F56 Launch Live

    huge tail lamps and long noses – still the main impression. hopefully will get over it…

      Yes. Lots to like about the F56, but that remains my impression too (having only seen it online). I still can’t help but wonder if a more upright windshield would deemphasize the longer bonnet.

    Only Coopers present?

    • Chris Samyn

      you have the 2 valancia orange in one of the last picture and the one in the water is a white silver COOPER S

    Boy the Cooper is a good buy now. If the MPG is as high as I imagine it will be it will be an excellent car for the money.

    Interesting. Now that the car is bigger it seems it needs the 18″ wheels to look “right”. At least to my eyes.

      Not as much in person.

    • Andrej Tsukamoto

      I was thinking the same, on pics it looks like 16″ wheels on a R50/56.
