    First pictures of all-new New Mini

    The all-new New Mini will be introduced in September at the Frankfurt Auto Show. It will feature 3-cylinder engines and a platform it shares with the new 1 Series GT. Confused? That's BMW's FWD platform. It will be built at the Oxford (UK) and the NedCar (Netherlands) factory.

    I have never warmed to the headlights on these new Mini's. Surely they could have done better.

    Really? I always thought they were pretty cool. Fun to drive, too.

    I found the Mini Cooper s lacking in power for the cost of the vehicle. I also was no5 impressed with the ridiculous sized speedometer....or the cost to repair.

    Just not a fan.

    I guess the whole Mini thing is more to Europeans' taste. I do like the first one that was introduced in 2000. The Mini II design became too cluttered. As usual, base versions will show cleaner designs than the sportier, more expensive versions. I hope they will leave out the extra lights thingy below the front bumper. Rumor has it that they will tone down the big dial dashboard.

    I'm looking forward to the Kia Provo. I mean, while driving you get to feel like a StarWars stormtrooper -and- give the bird to Mini owners... What do you want more?

    That's the appeal. They're like RC cars that you get to drive.

    The last few weeks I've been driving a 2008 Clubman S. A hoot to zip around town in, competent on road trips, and roomy enough to occasionally put people in the back seat thanks to the third door and longer wheelbase.

    Yeah only the original Mini deserves to be called that. A Cooper was a delight to fang around too.
