Hello

Hi

I have been lurking around here for a while now so I thought it about time to pop in and introduce myself.
Ordered a new mini last month with delivery expected in November. Just counting down the days to it's arrival now!

Congrats and welcome! I especially love the interior on the Highgate, and the car should look brilliant with the brown roof.

Just spoke to my dealer for my weekly update. Car is currently being made (in bodyshop) and he expects it to be finished in a few days. If everything goes to plan I should get it sometime next week. Not long to go now!

Thanks. It's called truffle but it's a dark chocolate colour, more so than toffee.
