but in the VIN (vehicle identify number) the first letter is the W for germany, i want to know if i can find one made in US

The Mini Hatch/Hardtop, Clubman, Convertible, Coupe and Roadster are assembled at Plant Oxford in Cowley, United Kingdom, and the Countryman and Paceman are assembled by Magna Steyr in Austria. As Racer stated: NONE are made in USA

OP you might be confused, here is a Mini VIN decoder, the first number of the VIN is country of assembly.... http://www.northamericanmotoring.com/forums/vindecoder.php

WHY exactly do you have this special need/desire/wish for it to made in the USA, anyway?? Do you think if there WAS a Mini that was made in the USA, that parts/repair for it might be cheaper? LOL!
