I love this color in person. It is beautiful. And this is one of the cars that was at MTTS in Denver. They even left the sin city mini clubs logo on there that they put on it.

Illinois tags. May have to roll by BMW/Mini NA headquarters on the way to work and see if they have the cars in the lot.

I think I saw one of these last night on my way home. It was at Union Station in DC, where I catch my commuter train, and there was some sort of Mini event/banquet/etc. There were several Minis, and a brown one of these SUV-looking ones.

It's so much better in real life..

And, as any MINI, needs the right wheels and colors to look great..
