    I’m finding that I’m in the minority of MINI fans in my general dislike for the Countryman. More or less, I’m OK with the four doors, the idea of a MINI sport activity vehicle, but it’s the size that I’m not happy with. I also loathe the headlight shape; I’m worried it signals a continue and gradual move away from MINI’s original inspiration.

    But it’s not the end of the wold, of course. It appears that the Countryman is being well received world wide, so Hat Off, MINI 🙂
