I've got a new Gears up at Metro Weekly on the 2008 Mini Cooper S. In short, there's a lot to love about the Mini, and the new enhancements, mostly stylistic, don't do anything to change that. The new Mini Clubman -- a larger version of the car that should address some of the Cooper's problems with storage area and back seat passengers (it doesn't have any and it doesn't hold any) -- is out soon and I'm awaiting my chance at the wheel. Given the interest in the car, though, I don't expect to get a crack at it until mid-summer at the earliest.
Because I'm slacking, I've neither noted the earlier review of the Lexus IS 350 nor finished the logo for this embryonic site. Soon, soon, I promise.
