Yes, It is true, I am still missing my Mini Cooper! It was a great conversation starter. Everyone loved it from 4 year olds to 84 year olds. I leased this beauty for 45,000 miles and I turned it in with 10 miles to spare! If only the Mini came in a four wheel drive, I would have gotten a new one, but unfortunately they haven't come out with that option yet. I love my new car (with all wheel drive), but I will always miss this Mini!
