White Cooper Duh Mike.............

DON'T KNOW WHERE I HEARD THE COUNTRYMAN WAS BUILT IN OXFORD (WRONG). ALSO TOLD THEY GO FROM FACTORY ONTO A SHIP (WRONG).

THE CUNTRYMAN IS BUILT IN AUSTRIA, IS THEN TRUCKED TO THE PORT IN GERMANY. THE MINI'S GET ON THE SHIP AND GO TO THE UK, THEY PICK UP MORE MINI'S THEN THEY HEAD FOR US PORTS.

ALL THAT IS DONE IN THE REMAINIG 6-7 WEEKS AS THEY SAID?

THAT SOUND LEGIT TO YOU FOLKS????

Looks like the Mini Countryman and Mini Paceman may become British built soon....
BMW to End Mini Production at Magna Steyr | The Truth About Cars

"The Kleine Zeitung newspaper recently reported that the BMW Group will end contract production of Mini cars by Magna Steyr in 2016. The Austrian supplier currently builds the Mini Countryman and Mini Paceman. BMW will move production of the two models to BMW’s own Mini factory in Oxford, England, and to Mitsubishi’s former NedCar facility in the Netherlands, where the Dutch group VDL will start Mini production under contract later this year. Magna Steyr’s corporate parent, Magna International, said in a statement that its relationship with BMW will continue through a new vehicle manufacturing contract. “The new production program would start following the end of production of the current Mini models Mini Countryman and Mini Paceman being assembled by Magna Steyr in Graz.” No details were given on specific models that Magna Steyr will be assembling under the new contract.

According to the Kleine Zeitung, Magna Steyr’s role will not be to build particular BMW Group cars but rather it will hold capacity for a variety of models as demand dictates. Those would likely be high-volume models like the BMW 5 series and 3 Series cars. The newspaper says that the contract will probably cover a volume of over 100,000 vehicles over 6 to 7 years.

Neither Magna Steyr or BMW has commented on the report.

Magna Steyr currently also assembles vehicles for Mercedes-Benz and Peugeot."
