Lookin for a MINI site like this

Anyone got links to a MINI sites like the D-90 source?
Pretty much a done deal that my wife gets a Mini, I get to keep the D90. The Honda becomes the 3rd car.
Just got to try to price one accordingly - what an extras list those things have! Before you know it, $5000 added on. And around me, no one bought a simple stick convertable. Even a 4yr old hard top is selling for more that the base of the redesigned '07.

Guess I'll factor in that expense as an add on to owning the Defender

We traded our 06 in last year and got, on trade, $1K less than we paid for it new -- defender level resell levels! Granted, ours was a massive POS and the service experience sucked. A Lot. As I drove off the audi lot I gave the mini the finger. Ensure that you have a dealer nearby (remember you can't take them to any BMW dealer), make sure all TSBs have been checked and hope for the best.

2008 Mini release date - anyone found an article / reference for the US release date of the 2008 models?
I will be buying a MINI in late July but have started to see other manufacturer ads for the '08s.
Most likely I will lease and the info helps a bundle on negotiations for lease terms.

The good news is you will save tons of space. She can park the Mini underneath the Defender in the driveway, and put it in her purse when she goes shopping, saving you from paying parking. See, it's already paying for itself!

Paul,

I have owned 2 MINIs. I had one of the first MINIs in the states, and now a 2003 BRG Cooper S. They are really nice cars. I have had very little problems with my S. It has been almost 5 years now.........

Try this site out. It is pretty active:
http://www.roadfly.com/mini/forums/

Roadfly covers other cars as well if you go to the home...........
