[OT] I want a Mini!

So I was just over at pricing out my dream Mini Cooper S. What a little rocket that thing is gonna be. 0-60 in 6.9, 170hp of blown 4-cylinder power mated to a 6spd Getrag... gorgeous interior! My fully-loaded Mini-S was just under $26k, which I think is a steal for the car that you're getting.

Anyone else think this is a sweet little ride?

mini will set a benchmark for FWD handling.

probably on the same plateua as the new focus SVT.

it's amazing what shorter wheelbase cars can do in terms of FWD handling.

i would really love to have one, too! three dogs just don't fit into that picture, though.

damn you.

my labradors are probably the equivalent of the 5 series.

they're agile enough, but not as fast as those little frasier eddie dogs.

but if i wanted the fastest dogs like i want the fastest car, i would adopt greyhounds.


i REALLY want a mini. too bad my wife is happy with the wagon. rats.

um, this is a drool-esque writeup.

ps. TD: i'd take a nice "used" F355 over that Z8 anyday (since we're talking hypothetical money to burn).
