Congratulations, Lordy. The clear lenses/silver bulbs really compliment PS/B well - maybe the best of all the colors. It gives it a really clean, classy look. Love it!

Thanks for the pics. We Yanks are having to live vicariously through you lucky Brits so the more pictures and reviews the better!

So for all the New R56 owners I just wondered if there is any thing that bothers you about your new cars for me it has to be:

When it has been driving the plastic gullies around the roof fill up with water and as u open the door as the water rolls of the roof over the plastic gullies and because its full drips all over my new interior happened twice now was very unimpressed.

Second problem is the awful sun visors theres a huge gap in the corner and it seems like thats the only place the sun ever is. I am sure the gap is worse than on the old minis.

Thats the only things I have really picked up on at the moment but apart from those minor things what a car just look forward to what ever journey i can make in it

I'm used to those things from previous MINIs, so far nothing to grumble about.

Just got ours today... MCS in laser blue....

The only things I don't like ( Besides the dealer ) are ; ( some maybe fixed when I read the manual )

Radio volume knob
Auto lights come on too soon
Sports option won't stay on
The fact we didn't order the chrome interior
Auto-wipers need to reset each time

But am happy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Got mine on Thursday.

32 mpg so far from 150 miles, a mixture of countryside and round town.

Go on then! These are the last though, it's got brass monkey freezing out there now!

So far I've got about 28mpg from ~50 miles. It was about 17mpg (!) but I took a spin out to Westerham last night and now it's getting better.
