Mini wanted more male buyers. They then took a car predominately purchased by females and cut some trunk space. How is that an effective strategy?

So yes Im of the opinion that this car is pretty silly.

Can't believe someone in my family (my mom) is making me go negotiate the price AND PICK UP one of these ugly cars tomorrow morning!

She thinks so. I'm actually liking them the more I look at them. With just two of us at home now that trunk will be more than adequate for our needs. And with gas going up by the minute, we may be parking the 128i until after the electiosn when whoever wins re-manipulates gas prices back down.

I've never seen one on the road, but one was parked next to the Cooper S I bought last week.
