I saw some guy driving a vintage Mini Cooper (right-hand drive, even) on Highway 1 out in Langley yesterday. It looked like a 3/5 scale model of the current Mini.

That's the way I feel, too. This car is the perfect daily driver for me. Perfect size, perfect interior, great gas mileage, great looks, excellent kit, and fun to drive while retaining commuter-mobile practicality. And I love the OEM 18" wheels. I even love the MyFord Touch system when it isn't acting up, and I can't wait for the update.

Got to drive an original spec MINI out at the airport I used to work at, torn up the taxiways, what a blast...10 inch race wheels...so go-cart, so sweet...right hand drive with 1965 no syncro trans was interesting, you have to be ONE with the car.

Some people have legitimate complaints. To be expected with an initial release. But, I think there are far more satisfied owners and I belive Ford has a made a fine car!

I love my Focus Titanium. Its a happy place to be driving in Alaska. Seat warmers that work great. Absolute neck breaker. So many compliments.

Tinted the windows Dark! makes it look so much better. Even installed a Alpine System. Car is a blast.

Absolutely loving my SEL so far!

1,500 km atm and each one as great as the next. :)

All my friends are jealous and fight over the ambient lighting! haha.

Can't wait to sport my 17" painted wheels in the summer and tint my windows.

The SGM shines best in the summer light.

Love my 2012 Tuxedo Black Titanium!

I just got this one Tuesday and love being in it. It's a fully loaded Titanium. Today was a lot of fun. Got the windows tinted and put an Injen short ram intake in it.
