God, when that computer goes kaput, it's going to be fucking horrifying. ENGINE WHAT IS YOUR STATUS? ENGINE WHAT IS YOUR STATUS? ENGINE WHAT IS YOUR STATUS?
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Yes, the engine is made in Germany as well as the car. This idea, on the other hand, is painfully and transparently British. I've seen my share of CBBC and Superted growing up, and I know how they think.
MINI manufacturing is in Oxford.
All I can find about the move to Germany is filled with the words "might" and "long term".
For people that need their social interactions force fed to them.
Oh god, I wanted to test drive a manual and they gave me one of these. It was chiding me about acceleration by the first stop light.
I can't imagine what kind of person would pay $5k for the embarrassment package.
I have never wanted a talking car.
I have never wanted to know what a car is thinking. Surely, I am not alone in this
Just wait till the driver asks for a cup of tea
Driver? Are you kidding? The fucking cupholders are demanding you have a nice hot cup of Darjeeling on hand.

A Kitt emulator would have been cool for about 5 minutes, but that shit would make me yank my hair out strand by strand.

OH GOD MAKE THE VOICES STOP!
"I just wanted to tell you that your mother loves your brother more than you and that your seatbelt is unbuckled."
Help Ticket 088251: Please help, Coach has stopped talking to Engine, Climate not coming around much anymore since all the fighting started. Engine now idles at slow sob. Just wanted to grab chips at the corner shop. Assistance needed.

The first car I want to kill.
Would be worth it if there was a GlaDOS mod.
When playing video games, I usually turn the sound off partway through because I'm tired of hearing the same things. In one short trip, that thing shouted "Let's Mini!" a good four or five times. I would veer it towards a fucking cliff.

I was hoping this was going to be the Mad-Maxified Camden NJ package.
I was so down for this until the car actually started talking. I wonder where the decision to not have the car talk to the driver, but to itself, came from?
I would still want this, but only if the computer voices were replaced by the characters from Titan Maximum.
"Like a greased lightning we will motor forward!"
I would assume an ostensibly British car would have at least some idea how to speak English.
Mini, remember the pregnant spider that hung out outside your window one summer? Eventually the egg sack hatched and...
I can't wait for Top Gear to get a hold of this.
Yeah, nobody's getting laid in this thing.
And just when you least expect it, all the voices join in a deep, slow chorus and start singing "daaissyy, daaaiiiisssssyyyyyy...."
Lets SHUT THE FUCK UP!
