I've just booked a factory tour for september - the week my mini is due to be built. So, I'll be keeping a close eye on things hehehe! Thought it would be cool to go and visit the week mini is being built - I'll be collecting it the week after!
Don't think you'll spot your MINI...a buddy of mine works in the factory and I asked him to drop down and see it, and he wasn't allowed on the floor (he's in IT). Especially bummed as I was hoping he could snap some photos, but even emps aren't allowed to take photos (if they're allowed on the line)...
Went on the tour at the end of May and part of our group was a MINI2 who's cabrio was being built whilst we were there. Whilst there was loads the same colour as the one he had ordered it was impossible to distinguish his MINI from the rest. But, he could have seen it and not known it was his.
Have a great time at Oxford it's a great day out.
Billy - I'm going on the 6th - hopefully getting my car the following week! Be cool if you see a car like the one you're getting :-) The build week for mine is the week I'm going on the tour - I've ordered a pepper white / black.
I'm booked on a factory tour the week mine is due to be built too, just in case I spot my baby!! Mine is due to be built w/c 31 July but my dealer said they'll have it in on 7th Sept - so how come my car takes so long........................?
