It's still too early in the life cycle of the latest MINI Cooper for BMW to make any major changes to the car's basic design, so our interest is naturally piqued by these spy photos of some interesting MINIs caught on German streets, since they appear to sport a mildly-revised front bumper that incorporates restyled air intakes and fog lights.
Since BMW first revived the MINI brand in 2001, the little Cooper has seen just one complete refresh, which took place in 2006 and was followed a year later by the stretched Clubman model. The latest convertible version was just released a few months ago, and all three models were met with mostly positive reactions. So, what's the deal?

According to Global Motors, these changes may make it into production for a new edition from MINI that celebrates the brand's 50th anniversary. It's certainly possible; after all, there's still plenty of life left in the 2009 auto show circuit. Stay tuned.
