| | confused about January builds
Okay, here's the deal. I wanted to get my first Cooper in Hyper Blue - I read this was only for January builds and onward, at least for the non-S models. So, I went to my local dealer earlier this month to see about ordering one. They told me I could probably *have* the car (in Hyper Blue) in November. Needless to say, I was a tad surprised since all the info I've seen so far indicated January - but I placed my deposit anyway.
Now they're saying that I won't be able to get the car until January - which *still* bugs me because the FAQs here say it takes at least 4 weeks to get from factory to dealer, and that means the earliest a January-built car would make it over would be 4 weeks, which is the next month, February.
I'm getting a bit tired of this, and was wondering if anybody knew the deal on this stuff. I told them to go ahead and add the Convenience Package with the Hyper Blue color, as I had always thought these things to be in the January revision.
So, bottom line, am I being fed a line of crap or what? When can one *really* expect to receive a car with the January options on it?
