Good news Heartbeat and make sure you don't skip tooo many beats on the collection day
make sure you take a good look over the car, even for alignments on the body work. Also do a search on say collection or some sort and sure you'll get plenty of ideas.
There is also a build date tag on the car so have a quick check on that.
I can't see you having any problems, just the you'll have when you are driving offfffff.
All the best and keep us posted with pics
Does my @rse look big in this broom broom www.totalMINI.com will be right back
Congratulation!!!! I will check the car body for any scratches and dings. You can't really tell the inside until you drive it for couple weeks, so the most important thing is outside, once you take the car home, the dealer will not repair any body damge for you, do be careful to check
Take your time and enjoy picking up the car. You've waited long enough for it. Don't rush. The car will most likely be parked outside the showroom. Have a good look at it before you complete the paperwork. When the sales person shows yu the controls, look at everything on the car again. Ask if you are not sure. It's your cash. Enjoy the experience. It's great.
picking up a new car for me has always been like collecting a rental car for a short hire.... be very vigilant when looking round to make sure there are no dings, i.e. looking down each side from front to back and back to front makes it easier to spot small imperfections and creases... lets be honest it is very hard to keep it perfect for long, so you may as well make sure its perfect to start with... then collect your freebies, and prepare to smile !!!
Thats a coincidence! My S is also at the garage. I collect it on Friday! I've had a look at it and given it the once over- Looks great! Can't wait!
Incidentally the tyres on it are Dunlops, yet the equally new car next to it has Good Years. Which are the best? Should I swap them over!!? Any opinions?
