My thoughts exactly. To think that the Mini may finally make a return to
our shores only to be sold at BMW dealerships is disgusting. Goes against
everything the car stands and stood for. I'm sure an Dinan "M" edition is
next; the Mini M4 with the optional German tri-color roof.
The same can be said of the new bug. VW can't even build a "true to
tradtion" Beatle rather a front engined, Jetta powered Seinfield-mobile.
What's next Triumphs at Merc dealers? :^)
