    And boom. It has a spare tire that the BMW MINIs don’t have. XD

      Easy, now. R50’s are quite sensible in this way.

      A spare that I always took out or left upright. I got tail-ended many years ago whilst waiting in a queue. The impact blew both fuel caps off (I never found them!) but the spare tyre pushed the back seat bulkhead forwards a foot, which would have killed anyone in the back.

      Nowadays I’m glad not to have a spare that transfers the impact forwards.

      Then just stay away if everything you read is old news.

    Kind of a tie between this and the ecto 1 from Ghostbusters. Its kind of a fun year for Lego Fanatics.

      And the Time Machine DeLorean from Back to the Future!

  • warrencheswick

    $100 seems like a lot. The Delorean is $35

    • Scott Eaves

      Delorean has 401 pieces. Mini Cooper has 1077 pieces. That accounts for at least part of the price difference.
