Just watched that clip. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy about buying my MINI (Heck, even my SAAB didn't come close to having that many problems...) in spite of any oddities/problems its produced over the past three years. The MINI is almost 100% reliable...

Are the GT's having problems here also? Or just the ones they altered for the UK market?

I personally love the Ford GT, I'd rather have one over a Lambo or a Ferrari.

Not one full day of function the entire time he's had it. Yup its a FORD.

And it appears I've found a picture of Clarkson

RFI I like the looks but it has to be driveable, personal tastes makes me prefer the F430 over the GT, which was only desgined to out due the 360.

A local buddy of mine has both the Gt and a new Exige for canyon fun. He had a fully set up Mini for awhile. He has put a pulley, chip and exhaust on the GT already and it was fast enough stock to leave one of Steve's 11 sec cameros in the dust a couple of months ago. He has had no issues with is so far , if i hear of any I will post them up.
