Cincinnati MINI will start a fun new project with MY64 and Great Lifestyles. Great Lifestyles airs beginning October 3rd on Sunday Mornings at 11am. We will be traveling Cincinnati in the signature MINI on Saturdays beginning in August to help film “get out and go” segments on the surrounding cities! We will keep you updated where we will be in and when and maybe you can stop by!

And the winner is…

Robb Clifford won Cincinnati MINIs “I love my MINI” on line contest.  We had several great pictures and stories but Robb’s point about the MINI Community hit the nail on the head.  Thanks to everyone who entered and for sharing a little bit about yourself and your MINI.  Keep your eyes out because Cincinnati MINI WILL be doing contests like this in the future, and you too could be the winner of a prize valued at $50, just like Robb.  Check out Robb’s Picture and story below!

What I love most is the community of MINI Drivers. The way we can have a great conversation about anything under the sun and then go for a great motoring trip afterwards, even if you JUST met the person 5 mins before! I love the strange looks you get while driving, whether they are excited looks (often accompanied by a thumbsup), confused looks or just plain bewilderment (when they pass our driveway with 2 MINIs in the driveway)! Motor-On!

Yep – that’s right. Ann M. Job, for The Associated Press, says that the MINI is efficiently packaged. The Convertible “includes a little of this and a little of that, so drivers have ways to get the most from this little car”.  To see the whole story visit the KY Post’s edition here

Help me choose!

All right all you crazy MINI people out there, I’m going to turn the table on you. I am the new manager of the Cincinnati MINI sales department, but I want you to sell me on what MINI I should buy. With the crazy low payments on MINI Select and the 1.9%  on all models, I have decided to pull the trigger and buy a new MINI. So put on your plaid suits, slick back your hair and “persuade” me on what the perfect MINI would be.
