LOL....weren't you gonna get an Abarth because you didn't think the 128 wasn't fun enough? so how does the Countryman fix that problem? by getting something so boring that you won't remember shit?

I was but we already have an Arbath...don't need two. My lease is ending in next month or so and I'm trying to be sure I want to make the commitment to keep it. The 128 is a fun car, longest I ever kept one, but is it practical for the next few years, I suppose only I can answer that. But I would like to get general thoughts on the Countryman from other 1 series owners.

How about the Cooper S or Cooper JCW? They are probably much more fun than the Countryman and closer to your original choice of another Abarth. Unless of course you need the practicality of the four doors of the Countryman, but if that's the case you probably wouldn't have originally thought of the Abarth as another car.

All I have to say is I went to test drive a cuntyman S about a year ago with a female friend and I never even got to drive it because she hated it so much, she literally drove around the block and just pulled back into the dealership and we left.

If you want cars that may share similar traits as our cars or an abarth with a little more room though, at reasonable prices, I think the cars to check out are the fiesta ST, focus ST, or what many people really rave about and seemingly like more than M235i - the new WRX.
