Countryman Discussions

With the Clubman now having an All4 Model, what are your thoughts on placing the Countryman sections within their specific Generation's? For those that may say the Countryman is not a MINI it is suggested that one do a search on a MINI Countryman WRC, or do a group twistie run and see how well they handle.

Would think that if the move takes place that the R60/61 have their own Stock Problems/Issues section in Gen2 and the F60 have the similar section in Gen3.

As with the impromptu "political survey", please be sure to give us a Yes or No. Also ask that if your signature does not state, please note what model MINI you have.

I vote, it doesn't make much difference. Wherever it is I'll find it.

Not as exciting as the Political yes/no topic.

You know already I'm for it. Appeals to my sense of logic and good order OCD, OCD.

Yes. I think every R of F # designation should have its own, separate areas for problems/issues if possible.

yes, to a point.
I dont know the secific difference between the F and R (will be doing my research on it today) but unless they are vastly different they can be IMO in the same section
until there is a vast design/engine/chassis change to truly designate a different generation, I think keeping it as simple and clean as possible is best.

adding categories like WRC or twistie/track can get messy as well- most of that can fall into performance, or suspension modification categories

Yes good idea.

The Countryfied MINI is no longer in the WRC. That's a shame.
