      Ok, first quality problems. On the outer door handle on the driver's side, there is a little chrome cover for the physical keyhole that basically hides it in the silhouette of the door handle form....

      It's a kamm tail (look it up) that was designed with over 500 hours in the wind tunnel to be as aerodynamic as possible. And it looks quite a bit different than the Prius.

      And yet no one brought this up in my thread about the MINI I bought, no one brought it up when I bought the Mustang, No one brings it up when people talk about the Abarths they bought, or... If you...

      Exactly. The Volt isn't made in enough numbers to be bought by everybody in the US. they can't MAKE it in those numbers. But for the majority of folks, who drive around with one or two people in...

      How does 400 MPGe sound to you? That's what we calculated mine got over the course of last year. I get almost 60 miles on a charge when the weather is above 45 degrees. It'll show an indicated 45...

      yeha, the one I posted is RHD. Most of them were, if you do a Google image search on it.

      You didn't get out of a previous gen Non-S Hardtop to drive them back to back. This one felt like the R53 S. It'd bark the tires into second and third pretty easily, and has noticeable thrust...

      As I said in the other thread, I'd have Foose and company work on my cars, not in the overhaulin' time frame, but his normal customer cars. He does exactly wht the customer wants/likes. Didn't you...

      The potatophone pictures really don't do it justice, as far as the nose is concerned. It's not as long as it looks in those pics, and is really barely longer than the old one, when sitting side by...

      It's a little less plastic, but the '11 model we had had the much improved interior anyhow:

      You can flick a switch to go "green mode" where it's all Prius like for the sake of fuel economy, but we drive it in Sport mode that tightens up the suspension, steering, and remaps the throttle...

      Spare goes under the car horizontally. Takes up no interior space, and you lower it by cranking down on it from under the lower cubby in the hatch.

      Not much to see:

      None taken. I dont' like it as much as the last one for proportions, but it's better as a car in every other area. And I don't think it looks that bad anyhow.

      Our last one has been flawless for...
    17. The MINI is gone, long live the MINI. Or, we got a new DD for the wife.

      Haven't driven the new S, but I did drive the new Cooper 1.5 turbo this past weekend at the local MINI event. Took our '11 there, so I can comment on them back to back.

      Power... The new Mini has...

      Aaand, they probably won't wear out during the time you have the car. Not like a 350Z or M3 that were eating their tires on a monthly basis. The tire compound is harder for low rolling resistance,...
