Mini or MINI: What’s the Difference?

Recently it was brought to my attention that I have not been properly noting MINIs or Minis (thanks Corey Brown!)


This classic Mini is not a MINI. Now you know. You’re welcome. I hope we see some in the #epicMINIrally in June.


For those of you who, like me, are new to the M(ini)INI community allow me to break it down for you! The British Minis were definitely considered Minis. Sadly, they stopped making Minis and eventually were bought out by BMW. Everyone needed a way to differentiate the British manufactured cars from the BMW manufactured cars and thus the  MINI was born.

Henceforth, I will be referring to MINIs as MINIs unless I am specifically talking about a Classic Mini, in which case I will respect their tradition!

  1. Thumbs up! Little pet peeve of mine to see our MINIs written as Mini, but I usually keep it to myself. Thanks for sharing this information.

    • Haha, I’m glad that Corey clued me in! I promise to try to keep it straight in the future, though if I make occasional slips know that it is completely unintentional!
