There was one spotted in Cali a couple of days ago being driven by one of the Ford Engineers. I will see if I can get the pictures from my buddy.

I think they've had one out here for a while now. I got to check it out at Adam Corolla's shop during a private event a few months back. It looks incredible in person.

MINI has some serious work to do if they ever plan on being taken seriously in the performance FWD market. The GP just doesn't even come close.

I have a buddy with cash in hand and the dealers are really jerking people around. You put down a 5,000 deposit , to get on a list and they will not tell you the final price or if you are sure to get a car. They do admit that there will be a " market adjustment " over retail but will not say how much.

We got one in at work a few weeks ago, unfortunately it was right after work when I was leaving...literally driving by it...

Saw one in the parking garage at work this week, not sure if a co-worker or patient - so it may not be back. :-(

If it reappears I may see about getting a ride (or drive if possible)...
