Doesnt make that much of a difference. Would have been a copmplete no-no anyways. It would be too expensive for india.

If the fiat500 gets some success, i hope bmw learn from it and get the mini in as it has a much larger appeal and fan following.
Producing the mini in India maybe wishful thinking for now as bmw has its capacity tied up with the 3 & 5 series.
The mini can come in as a lifestyle vehicle via the CBU route.
