    Never seen a 4 door on a mini. Pretty pricey don't you think?

    The S AWD base is 27k. If you check off every option and package and get the Works body kit then it's 39-40k. That doesn't seem pricey to me. Seems like a cool car.

    40k seems like a lot for a Mini, even if it does have every option. I think it is a cool car though.

    Its a cool car but at $40k I'd get something else.

    I have a clubman S right now and I love it. In fact, I was supposed to pass it along to the ol lady this summer and get back into a cadillac but it never happened. The countryman is bigger than i would want in a mini but I dont have kids or anything like that so I have no need for it. If I had kids and the need for something a little larger than th clubman I'd be all over it.

    40k is pricey but with all the BMW masturbation around this place, I'm surprised to see the mini being picked on for being expensive. Hell, at least the minis are unique looking! if you try getting into a bimmer with that propeller on it for 40k you're not gonna get far.

    You can get a new VW GTI fully loaded for just over 30. I'd take that over a mini.

    It's like a Touareg that came out of the Wonkavision.

    ugly and defeats the purpose of the original 'mini'

    Not for me, but looks like a cool little car. Most people I know that own minis are absolute fanatics and love them. My sister in law has one a raves about it. They just don't strike me as a very robust car to be freeway driving in though. BMW did a great job with this brand.
