Thought I'd revive this thread and see what others are driving in 2011.

Two weeks after alnding in the good ols US of A, we have purchased our first car....

A '11 Mini Cooper S Countryman. I've yet to see another one here yet. Plenty of Cooper S, and a few clubmans but that's it.
Glad to see you are settling in.
Love that you have a uk car in the us, but had a us car here.

Wife has a white and black one here. She loves it. Not a pretty car, but great fun to drive and is excactly what we needed - 4wd, smallish car, but highish seating position.

And of course i have the Exige, so we have gone all British :-)

Good score. 4x4 version? The car's look is an acquired taste. Looks like the original Mini injected with cortisone.

On topic: 2008 Fiat 500 Sport.
I refer to it as the mini which ate all the pies...

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

An update for the family fleet here, we sold the Multipla when we left CH, a brilliant car, fugly but brilliant. Then we had (for a very short while) a Hyundai Trajet which I referred to as the Tragedy. Then we bought a Range Rover 4.6, when it works its fantastic. Unfortunately, it's not reliable yet, it will be once I've finished giving it a full restoration.
I still have my BMW 850Ci fun car :-)

Probably not often people p/x an Hyundai tragedy to a range rover. Good on you

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

Porsche Carrera 2003 Competition Edition. I drive in it as my hubby is not eager to let me drive it after a few minor accidents I had in the previous one

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

Just gotta say, as a car enthusiast, I love CH also because there are so many cool cars to be admired daily, even if I don't drive one myself.

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

I drive a Honda CVR (old model) and I love it. Not too big, not too small; never breaks down; and the floor of the boot doubles as a camping table. WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT?
