Looks mighty fine! Have you tried the USA configurator? You can get some more angles for the photo album!

I did a tour of the MINI factory last night (didn't spot mine on the production line tho - apparently that has only happened twice in 9 years). You should have a fairly unique colour with the Spice Orange, it seemed 9 out of 10 were Midnight Black!

Am I seeing things, or does the top color match the body?

Week 18 is w/c 30th April - sounds like it's bang on schedule or early if they told you mid-May.

I think it will take thema week to PDI the thing. They said they would let me know when they got the chassy number, I can then get insurance etc sorted.

Should turn it around in a day or two tops! You know MINI Insurance will do a free 7 day cover note and only takes a day to sort out once you have the reg. Only downside is a sizeable excess.
