New 2011 Countryman here!!
Well I traded my 2005 X3. Got a 2011 Countryman S last Saturday. Got it with the manual, sunroof, HK sound, ipod/bluetooth, rear bathtub cover for the dogs, and split center rail. I bought it at the dealer because the one I wanted was the one on the lot. Got it for 1000 less than msrp, 28700, and good trade. If you go in pre approved for your loan, they will hit 3.9% on the countryman, I just had to haggle for an hour or so. Took it to San Diego over the weekend and hit 1200 miles just before we split off of the 15 towards big bear lake. The MOST fun I have ever had on a mountian road. Just forgot to engage sport drive. Oh well, next time. Love the Countryman, would buy another in a heartbeat. Two things I miss about the X3 are the auto wipers, and the xenon headlights.
31 mpg? Sweet!
