How long before Mini and Fiat 500 follow?
I want a 5.0 equipped Focus

I think Mini sticks around for a while. They sell enough to justify their existence and have an insanely loyal following.

Fiat is the $500 question

The 2nd generation was actually kinda cool looking.  The first gen was just silly looking.

My wife had a turbo beetle convertible. It was actually a fun car to drive. Transmission started to go at 80k miles and they wanted $6500 to fix.

Yeah I really dig the refresh they did on the Beetle, made it look less feminine

 

But I barely see them on the roads too vs the first gen

Semantics-If I wanted one, I'd get new gen model vs the old one.

 

Plus these wheels are really cool

As a meat-eating hairy member of the human species, I would not drive a first gen.

 

However, I'd rock a second gen.
