With all the recent R56 reviews coming in across the automotive landscape, I wanted mention our plans for reviewing the new 2007 MINI. I will be taking part in the first US launch event for the 2007 MINI this February in Arizona. I’ll be publishing photos to the site throughout the day and writing some quick reviews throughout the event. I’ll give my overall impressions of the new car in one (hopefully not too long) review that will be on the site within a day or two.

My overriding goal will be to focus on the enthusiast aspects of the car and how it compares with what we’ve all come to know and love about the R50 and R53 MINIs. As always, if you have any specific questions and concerns you’d like to see covered, let us know in the comment section below.
