Speaking of small, fast nicely proportioned cars, I was talking to a Mini Cooper S owner yesterday. Loves his car (so do I) and, based in my test drive a few months ago, it's an absolute peach to drive. My expectation is that Bimmer will outdo the Cooper S with the new 1-series (no surprise there). So if the Mini Cooper S is a synonym for the absolute minimum expectation for the 1-series, yeeeehaaa!!!!!
As we've said many times on this site, if the competition (B200, A3, MCS, GTI) sets the minimum standard (and we can be confident that the 1-series will easily surpass it) the car pictured above, adn its siblings, will be revolutionary...
