bmw mini countryman and scooter

Oh my, isn't he so cute. I call him "he" because he's the Mini Countryman. So it's a Mini but bigger, which to me is just right. Introduced in Europe last year, due to come to the US in late 2011, I can't find any word on when he'll come to Canada. I think I should start saving now. Meanwhile, maybe one of these little pretties would be a tad more affordable:

 I pretty much let out a squeal of delight when I first laid my eyes on these scoots. And yes, they too are from the BMW Mini family. They are enviro-loving zero-emission e-scoots. Plug in and go. Now, the real question is: go Paul Weller modster with the top one or play it super cool and go for British Racing Green. Hmmm, I think my age and my wardrobe are a better match for the latter but my oh my, the former is deelish!
