Can you tell me the reason you got this instead of the R56? I can't see why MINI even offers this. I am not trolling as I am sincerely interested in the why's.

Sure...

First, I wanted a bigger MINI, as this is now our only car (sold the mini van last week, thank God!). And we will try to be a single car family for some time. And then, I wanted to get rid of my previous "garage queen" as it became more as obsession rather then fun... R56 I would take any time if I can have another car for family. R61, I liked since concept. Everything I had issue with on R60, is "fixed" as far as I am concerned.
I also wanted ALL4. A crossover. A higher MINI (never lowering again, at least as long as I am living in downtown Toronto).

As I already wrote an answer to similar question somewhere else, since there is no "original size" MINI that I can buy new (wait till you see even bigger F series...), I might as well get a bigger MINI that I like.

I went crazy with modding my R55... I realized that when I started taking crap off the car for trade in. Hanging out too much on forums was to "blame" in part... Again, became sickness sort of speak, more then fun. I had to have all mods...

With R61, it will be a few "basics" (summer wheels, cheap exhaust and short shift adapter. Basically my favorite mods). But, not before I sell ALL I accumulated for R55...

Hope I explained it well?

Nice buy. I like the Paceman. I'd never buy one but I like that they exist if that makes sense. Like a BMW X6 really.

Glad to see you finally introduce it here. I've been seeing it over on Instagram for a little while now. Out of curiosity, what were the issues you had with the Countryman that the Paceman fixed in your mind?

Main issue with Countryman was 4 doors. Don't like that. Especially, front doors and position of the pillars on that car: front door are too small, and pillar is in the way. I am not a basketball player, but few times I got in and out of the CM I got "stuck"...
Second was the design or rear bucket seats with "holes" to the back. Paceman rear buckets were redesigned for 2013 (my car).
Paceman is a bit lower by design and suspension.
Paceman has no Mini Mouse on the front (although they changed it on CM as well)

It think that's it. Not much in total, but just enough
