For all the rumors of a DCT, power bump and the like, this isn't what I expected.

Not really surprising when you think about all the once "standard" options that are now extra cost options or part of a package if even available. I find the 3D printed options especially cheesy.

Going more British? Hmmm, will Lucas make a stuttering comeback?

This makes me happy that I have a F56.

Not much changes, and a solid platform.

Now, If I could just get the feel of the car dialed,
I'll be happier.

It's actually good for those of us that have F56 models ... a significant change would hurt resale even more. Not to mention, I can save my money for a while longer.

Plus we can wait for the LCI models to start showing up in junkyards after crashes and then swipe the Union Jack tail lights

“You like the new Mini, ja? Das ist ein kleiner Rennwagen, ja?”

The german engineers he has met, have been PRAC`s ( Promotion Practise Clowns), the man at the High Castle would have better ways, to make you love the LCI !

Yes the 3D individual programme is quite cheesy, its like on other projects MINI cooperates with 3rd parties.
