Having cynically disparaged the mini wave in a previous blog I have to say something I rarely say. I was wrong. It's a little less about the car than it is about a chance to smile and wave at someone. Sometimes it's a pretty woman, I'm happily married, but it still really brightens a middle aged man's day.
There's still a little factioning between the Mini, Mini S and the Clubman but for the most part it's all good. Any excuse to smile and wave to someone has to be a good thing.
