Ok so who has ordered an F56 MCS?

Just wondered if anyone on here has ordered an F56 as it seems very quiet

I have taken the plunge (actually Mrs W has) and am looking forward to it arriving in March.

Do you have any idea of how many MPG you can expect?

Surely it can't be anywhere near the 40 my 60 plate S is getting with that 2 litre engine??

Are there no other orders on the forum? I used to use this site years ago and am gobsmacked that there appears to be so little interest in the F56!

What have I I missed?

Anyway thought I'd have a look here as we're thinking about a new F56 for my wife.

Any in showrooms yet?

Official figures suggest 50 mpg so fully expect to get 45mpg out of it.

In the showrooms on March 15th. Not sure why there is a lack of interest. I know there has been some debate about the look of the car so perhaps people are reserving judgement until it is out and about.

Good to see a few more orders going in

I got a quick drive earlier and have to say it is most impressive.

I went to have a look at one today.

To put this into perspective, we sold our R53 Cooper S back in 2010, after which I moved on to a Mk 2 Focus RS and then a Land Rover Freelander 2. Consequently, my expectations of space are a little compromised.

However, when I got in, my head was resting simultanously on the head restraint, the roof lining and the section of the roof where the sideways sun visor fits. When I got out of the car, I had to bend my neck to get under the top of the door aperture. When I closed the door from the inside, I had to put my elbow into the oval door cut out, or wind the window down and leave my elbow sticking out of the window, Land Rover Defender style!

I had heard big things about the increase in boot volume, but I couldn't really tell any difference

Genuine question: Have my expectations changed, or is it a bit tighter inside than it used to be?

May '04-Feb '07 R50, Feb '07-May '10 R53. Outgrown! Then Focus RS Mk2.
Now Land Rover Freelander 2 (No.3!), Triumph Tiger 1200 & Triumph Daytona 1200SE powered

Must admit I am 6ft and had no problems. I will say it did feel small inside,but I haven't been in a mimi myself for a couple of years and am used to something bigger.

4000 Advance Orders - MINI success story worth celebrating - From Oxford Mail
Thursday 13th March 2014

"THERE is a stand-out figure that truly shows the quality of the motor vehicles produced in this city: 4,000 advance orders for the third generation Mini have been made before anyone has seen the car.
Today our Motoring Editor, David Duffy, gives his verdict on the latest version of the Oxford Mini.
It goes on sale on Saturday and he is mightily impressed.
The Mini plant is a core part of this city and is rightly valued.
But sometimes local pride can blind us a little over how the Mini is viewed further afield.
There are 900 a day rolling off the production line, but even the most ardent critic of the little motor cannot quibble with that queue of 4,000 waiting to get behind the wheel of the new generation."
Mini success story worth celebrating (From Oxford Mail)

I was due to pick up a Cooper S on the 15 March, but has been put back to 19 March
at the last minute so suspect it may have failed the PDI check.
