It would be nice if we had on-line tracking in the UK but the dealers & MINI wouldnt like it It means we're not going in every other week to change our spec & but MINI stuff Imagine all the agro MINI dealers would get when we track our cars & keep findng out they've been delayed

This sounds like bad news (especially as I've booked three days leave to drive our MCS from September 1!) I also suspect this is dealer whimp! Yes, that's expicit...after all, it is my birthday today! I don't know about you Huey, but I will go in "all guns blazing" if Snow's give me this line. My conclusion is ... if you are a "soft touch" you "will be taken advantage of".
We have already sold are second car ...so there had bettter be a damned good reason (& I'm VERY cynical) and "externally verifiable" justification for delay...or a "lose/lose" confrontation/publicity debit.. Hope Snow's are reading this. I am FULLY aware of current U.S. [reasonable] production...and given my delivery was against a VERY relaxed delivery schedule... I won't let things SLIDE lightly. I hope we can have a very united front on this, Huey, et al?
Thanks Huey....me and mine have chomped lobster, crab, prawns ...all afternoon ... with copious amounts of GOOD white wine. (after photoing Aida for our US cousins this morning) BUT...I might take a visit to Snow's tomorrow morning to get some "clarification"
Looking grim...still no production date...accept X-Lites "will be quicker"...but not original date. Think it is MINI being a shambles, rather than dealer. Sold car, money in bank (and costing me first month loan interest), extra holiday booked.... Urghghhhh!!!!
The famous BMW "just in time" ordering philosophy has once again turned into "far to late"
