do you mean the armrest is useless because it doesn't store anything under it or do you mean it's flimsy and cheap and doesn't hold your arm well?
#14 of 22 diesel or hybrid either way

just a clean diesel or a hybrid version set to 60+ MPG on the USA scale.

I have a 2007 Mini and I wish the speedometer was accurate. It is off 5mph at 75 mph.
Mini says that this is as designed and can't be fixed. Poor engineering

How do you know this?
Did you change tires at all?

Most speedos get fairly inaccurate as the speed climbs up. Did you have the car tested? Did you get a ticket? I hope you didn't just ask what your friends speedo next to you said when you were both driving at the same speed.

pickup truck? Any talk of this happening? It would be kinda like the old Volkswagen pickup. What do others think about this?

1. The sun shade for the moon roof is too transparent.
2. Need an armrest with counsil-like stroage in it.
3. The pockets in the door are too short. There is room to make them 60% longer.
4. Should be able to buy options ala-carte. Example, the garage door opener.

I have a 2009 Mini S hardtop. Did not buy the expensive package that includes bluetooth. Are you aware of an aftermarket bluetooth cell phone package that I can use with the Mini?

Parrot should make one that is not incredibly expensive.

Can you replace those nets on the back of the seats with proper leather or any other structurally solid material. The ability to stretch should be preserved but the holes covered.
