The face lift is not excessive, which is good. The car is very tempting.

Do they really need to test such minor changes? Also, wouldn't it be more camouflaged if they didn't use that tape that draws attention to it? I guarantee that if they would have avoided the tape, no one would have noticed the difference between the current Mini and this one.

Changes that are so minor shouldn't count at all!

I wish they'd give these damn things a severe interior lift. Then I might consider buying one. *shrug*

Just sayin.

Agree....if it had been a more conventional interior, I probably would've bought one of these. (Then again, if it had a more conventional interior, it wouldn't be a "Mini"....so maybe I'm not the market they're looking for.)

I got used to the quirky interior/toggles etc in a week. I look at MPH on the digital readout above the steering wheel. Otherwise I only look at the monster center speedo to see my fuel level.

The fun factor and awesome gas mileage, 28.8 city avg with a heavy foot, far outweigh it's "unique" interior.

One year left on this lease and I will be looking for a deal on the new AWD S.

Best urban use car I have ever had. For my free oil changes are the only times it has been back to the dealer. Unlike my 335 which went to same dealer so many times I can't count them.
