How many times do you see a glowing review of what is essentially a five year old car? If you’re reading MINI reviews lately, you’ve probably seen your fair share. Here’s the latest from Cnet:

>Rather than suffering the common fate of being a retro flash in the pan, BMW’s new Mini Coopers hold their looks well, even after five years on the road. With body styling virtually unchanged from the original 2001 launch model, the 2006 Mini Cooper S still evokes a happy feeling each time it passes. Even when inside the car, there is an urge to shout “Look at me, I’m in a Mini” to other drivers. And of course, they are all jealous of the pseudo-’60s lines and German engineering.
