This showed up at work today. I'm really impressed with what they did with these cars.

because only 'merica wanted numbers and the only thing more important to 'mericans than limited production numbers is the 'merican flag.

Yep. I think it's kind of weird for all but this one car that the logo on the inside says "1 of 2000" and isn't numbered for the car. Either way, I don't know how much the 0001 number adds to the value of the car since it's only 'Merica that gets the numbers, but it's cool that we got this one.

I agree that the American flag is kind of an odd thing to have behind the number. I'd peel every sticker off and get black/body color/silver accents to replace all of the red if it were mine.

I've got nothing against the American flag, so lets be clear on that, but wow that's gaudy. GP graphics extra extra

I'd like it if all GPs got a number and the country's they went to each had a corresponding flag...that would be cool. But only in The US is kinda lame

I know that quite a few people here in Aus put together a petition of sorts saying that we should get numbers for the GPs that land here. MINI Aus said they were not doing it for various reasons...

GP owners here are now having to write to MINI asking for the build numbers / number they came off the production line so they can work out what number GP they have.

Really is a pitty.

I think you'd be surprised. It's not like other states' roads are any better.

Not much lower than the height it was shipped.

One good thing about the wheels is they are 7.5" wide.
