I don't think I would have a problem with that if Opel had done all the design and engineering work on the Corvette.

Well, Opel is just a part of GM, as is MINI within the BMW group.

Or would you slap Audi rings on a Bug just because they come from the same group of companies and share platforms?

9 of 10 voices inside my head say I'm crazy. One is whistling...

I agree with BJ and Scotty. BMW does own MINI, but a roundel has no place on a MINI. I know that most people I sell MINIs to can afford any BMW they want and I'm sure you guys can too, but when I see a BMW anything on a MINI, it screams "I couldn't swing the BMW, so this is my poor man's BMW".
MINI is it's own brand, just because BMW owns it doesn't mean that there should be a roundel on it. Be proud of your MINI, or go buy a 3 series, just my 2 cents. (No offense intended)

That'ss giving up to early, might as well slap a raging bull on it and call it a Lam-bug-ini.

I stuck the Mini roundel to my computer and put a skull and crossbones in.
Bend over and prepare to be boarded
