    Stating the obvious, things have changed since 2001. Back then the MINI was a “premium” small car with little competition. Now, there are many small cars that border on premium, usually for less money. Not to mention the redesigned F56’s awkward design. Woops, I mentioned it!

      “things have changed”

      In spades. I might sum it up by saying MINI’s moved from being different to saying they’re different.

      Chasing consumer surveys and automobile press affection like a single-minded dog going after a bone is leaving some of us behind. But, if the Countryman’s success is any indication of MINI’s future, the company’s going to be more than fine (F56’s botched-ish launch be damned).

    Well , Ken, Me thinks you’re spot on. What never gets said, though, is after 3 failed launches, oops, did I say that, The Mgr. gets a “promotion “. ( ” Maybe it wasn’t “) Corporate does take care of their own. Now, with no cars to sell for 2-3 months, The ” MOTORING ADVISORS ” ( thats what they like to call them ) will have a hard time feeding the family and paying the bills, so probably a lot of MINI sales talent are looking elsewhere for employment. Motor On !
