I see some others have gotten some swag from their US dealers. So far the only thing I've gotten is that crummy "Book of Motoring". Who's doing better? Worse? Where are the generous dealers? The cheapskates?
Is the stuff sent from dealers something provided to all dealers as promo items by MINIUSA or do the dealers have to order (and pay for) the items?
I expect this thread to change as we approach and pass Launch Day.

Paid deposit Jan 2002. Nothing received from dealer but my cancelled check. No brochure.I did get"Book of motoring" from MINIUSA. What fun NOT!! Bought myself 4 Coopers in 4 colors ! Models 1:18 at Bargain closeout. I like lookin'at 'em. Lemooz in Tenn.
Silly book from MINIUSA, poster from dealer and a gorgeous 1/18 model in the colors I plan on buying from British friends who I was staying with at Christmas. (I was looking for my first glimpse of a MINI and hadn't seen one after a few days so they got me the model)
We in the UK had the best deal.
MINI kindly let us beta-test the cars to sort out all the problems before they were sold to other countries!
We had to give up the freebies though, or at least I seemed to.
