MINIs of Munich: Touring the City and MINI Showroom

MotoringFile Sections: MF Feature Aug 11th, 2014 3 Comments

MarienplatzMunich is a breathtaking city. Munich’s beauty and charm are matched only by its rich history. The fact that BMW is headquartered here lends greatly to the number of vehicles on the streets from the storied car maker. I recently took a trip to the BMW World museum and while I was in Munich I discovered that MINIs were everywhere so I took a few snapshots. continued →

For those that have been on the two week trek the finish line is both welcome and a little bittersweet. For those of us (me) who have just joined, it feels like a party. Either way there have been thousands of interesting MINIs and MINI owners to see and meet along the way.

Follow along with us as we post to Instagram and MF the sights of the final day of MTTS 2014. continued →

MotorTrend’s Top 16 Hottest New Coupes: MINI Cooper S Coupe

2013 MINI Cooper Coupe S

The longterm MotoringFile JCW Roadster won the hearts of all who drove it until it recently left the MotoringFile Garage to make way for its new big brother, the 2014 Cooper S hardtop. As much adoration as has been heaped onto the niche Roadster/Coupe pair, sales have waned slightly in 2014 with the pair being down 52.9%/54.4% YTD compared to 2013. But yet even in the shadow of the F56 launch, there is still much to love about of the Roadster and Coupe to the point that MotorTrend just named the Coupe one of the “Top 16 Hottest New Coupes on the Market”. continued →

Update – Thanks to all you who’ve entered our MotoringTern contest thus far. Given that creativity on Instagram goes up during the weekend, we’re extending the contest through Sunday night.

So if you love MINIs, can write well, navigate technology and social media with your eyes closed than this gig is for you.
