I did this when I was a moderator on MINI2.com and the result of the poll was amazing. :shock:

That BMW was spot on in the way they marketed the New MINI towards the younger generation as the bulk of the membership to MINI2 was below 25 at one stage.

And NO fibbing. :wink:


Now been MINIless for sometime due to the amount of problems we had with the 4 MINIs we owned...Cooper,Coopers x2,Cooper Convertable. :cry:

So far the complete opposite to MINI2.com as 40% of the members who owned a MINI were under 20. :shock: :shock:

I would like to thank those 64 members that made the effort to vote COME on the rest of you. :twisted:

I think oyu will find that the average age of Z owners is a little higher than it is for Mini's, from memory the last time this was done here the average came out about 35 ish.
I'm 47 but feel a lot younger when in the drivers seat.
