That's weird, I didn't realize me wanting a car to haul my kids around in affects the construction of the car you've presently own. My mistake. Sorry, it won't happen again.

I don't even have kids and I want it. I just love wagons.

I never said I wanted the MINI to be bigger ... not the core car anyway. I just merely pointed out why I had to buy something else.

I would prefer they build a larger Clubman (if that's what they need to do to keep buyers like me with growing families) and leave the 2-door car alone.

I'm reminded of this everyday when I try to turn right at a stop sign, but have to wait for the giant SUV behemoth beside me to move because I can't see the oncoming traffic. I almost ran over a couple in a parking lot last weekend while I was trying to back out of my space. A giant truck parked beside me and I had to clear it before I could see them. They couldn't see me backing out because of the truck either.

With all these new larger models, I can't wait for all of the forum threads about the trips to pre-school or the exciting drives to the park for some swinging

This looks promising

DuelL have stepped up to the plate with the F56 already

I wish it wasn't so aggressively styled, but then again it's Duell. On the whole that's definitely an improvement over the S bumper. I like the lip and the grill area.

I think they are making several options - but the aggressive front end suits the S, no?

Certainly looks promising, and can't wait to see it with some paint on!!

Glad someone is working on a fix for the S...
Hope they come out with a version that's less JDM....

Personally I think that bumper is god awful and I would rather just put the Cooper bumper on an S and call it a day...
