Just picked up my 2014 Roadster

Hello all. Just picked up my new Roadster from the dealer last week. I haven't had this much fun since the Triumph Spitfire I had in college! I'm praying it turns out to be much more reliable than that.
I'm paranoid about reliability though. I've heard some horror stories, and was wondering if anyone has had any problems with the roadster.
I've just hit 325 miles, and finally put gas into my baby!

Cool, I'm also waiting for my Roadster. Ordered about 6 weeks ago. I'm halfway to getting my new baby.

I got a new 2014 S Roadster off the lot on 5/16/2014, the same day MINI USA told me that they couldn't figure out what was wrong with the engine on my 2010 S 'Vert, and were probably going to drop a new motor into the car. Fortunately, I was able to convince the dealership to give me a decent trade-in, and I drove off the lot much happier.

That said... after 3 weeks and 700 miles, the housing for the driver's side turn signal indicator popped out at 80 mph and scratched the daylights out of the left side of the car. The dealership repaired and repainted the damaged part of the car, but it still doesn't exactly bode well.

You had a Spitfire in the US? I thought a 10 litre Trans Am where you can spin the wheels on tickover would be more the rule there?
