Mein Auto: 00 M Coupe, 08 135i
I must be an exception, but I really want one. I already have one ugly BMW product, a second would make a nice garage mate. For me, it's enough added utility to make it worthwhile, something the mini Mini doesn't quite offer for my needs. As a bike carrier and reasonably efficient daily driver, the Clubman fits my needs. The two tone works for me too, I'd take the blue one pretty much as is.

Extra door on wrong side

Looks cool - one thing though, obviously BMW not too concerned about safety in RHD countries, the rear door is on the wrong side and I hear they are too tight fisted to do it on both sides - wouldn't want to cut into the huge profits to cater for the country that started the original mini now eh (or any other RHD buyers)

i dunno in pics its not impressive, perjaps its better in real life, the car was limited in terms of space in the rear, but this takes away from the sportyness in my mind...

I heard the handling is almost the exact same as the coupe. Weight is a little more which becomes a slight factor, but not a major one.

I assume the Clubman is for some who likes/wants/adores the MINI, but needs/wants a little more room.

It also has an increased wheelbase that should do wonders for the ride quality on highways.
