Welcome to the ' Club'.
Enjoy the 'Pick up day' By Jingo you will.
I assume that by 'run flat wheels' you mean whatever wheel's you have selected on all four corner's 16" or 17".
Certainly not the 'Spare' which is a 'Noddy' car wheel.
The standard wheel's , Whatever size you have selected
should take any range of tyres available from current supplier's.
A feel that I should tell you about a phone call from my dealer that I received while I was awating delivery !.
I was a little bit concerned about having NO SPARE WHEEL in my order as I kept thinking , what happen's if the 'RUN FLAT SYSTEM ' fail's when i'm in the middle of nowhere ?.
Strangely as it migh't seem while deliberating about this problem I got a call from my dealer advising me to purchase the 'DUMMY' spare wheel as they had hear'd of a customer who's run flat tyre had not only 'GONE DOWN' after a puncture but 'Disintegrated' and the alloy wheel was destroyed as the poor person attempted to return to a garage !!.
Buy the 'Spare' it's not expensive and whatever size of wheel you have chosen for your 'Babe' you shoul'd find no problem getting new rubber as required .
I saw it and I took a picture. I will post it this evening when I will be at home. There was not a lot of light, so I don't know if the quality of the pic is good.
I talk with the dealer a lot about the mini. I asked him about his experience about the mini (he drives one since the beginning) and the faults. He told me about the windshield and others faults that now are corrected.
I asked him about the phantom aux input. He said that they looked too and that doesn't exist.
I live in Lausanne and I work in Geneva. So I bought it at Emil Frey in Geneva. It was easier to go there for all the paper since it at a 10 minutes walk from my work.
For the price of the 15" wheels and the snow tyres, I think that I paid a bit more than you. I remember that I paid the regular price for the wheels (in the accessories paper)and that I had a discount on the tires. As you know they always give you a dicount on tyres. So, I don't think that I got a good price. I will check for exact price this evening.
For the spare I think it was if you take it when you order the car something like 40fr.- (not sure, will check)
Cool...I live and work in Lausanne, just moved here from London. Will be glad to hear your views about your dealer. I went to Fribourg and, very nice sales guy but useless at fixing the niggles. Do they have anyone who speaks English down there?
If you ever see a Silver and black Cooper with non standard 15", flashing its lights at a BRG Cooper with with everything.... that's me!
Thx for info on wheels/tyres. There is a whole brochure here in Swiss for Mini for winter wheels/tyres combo. Starting from 323SFR to something like 580SFr each for 16" beauties.
Sorry you have to wait till Friday! I know the feeling... but all good things comes to those who wait!
The only thing prettier I can imagine than a BRG/W is a BRG/W in Switzerland. You live in the most beautiful country! I burnied up more film in two days in the Lauterburnen (I know I spelled that wrong) than in most of the rest of my trip to Europe put together!
Can't wait to see pictures!
