Question Dummy here.....

Some where, some time i was told the countryman was built in oxford (wrong) also told it left port from there (wrong) for the countryman anyway.

It's built in austria, then trucked to germany's port. Loaded up the boat leaves and heads for the uk (probably to pick up what oxford plant built)

then it heads for us shores.

My countryman is now on the truck headn for germany, between getting on the ship there the stop at the uk then crossing the ocean to us ports, do you folks think it will make it here in 6-7 weeks? Im not so sure

the dealer said 2 months, 2 weeks have passed.

I know thats alot of building, shipping and recieving for 2 months.
Whatya think ladies & gents???

Looks like Mini Countryman and Mini Paceman may be built in Oxford soon....
BMW to End Mini Production at Magna Steyr | The Truth About Cars

"The Kleine Zeitung newspaper reported on recently 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."
