Hi, New Cooper in Spice Orange ordered today.

Just ordered my first Mini. A Spice Orange Cooper with TLC and Pepper pack. So excited, hope it arrives before Christmas. Got black roof, caps and stripes, and the star spoke alloys. Also added chromeline interior.

Sounds great Spicy. That was the colour that we nearly went for until we discovered the Highgate Iced Choate. Hope you get your pressie in time for Christmas!

Santa's off to the Arctic first and hopefully to my house with a Countryman S ALL4!

I am curious how the spicy orange will look in person ...

Nice purchase Miss Spicy!

I was unsure of the colour looking in the brochures but they had a Coupe in the showroom in the Spicy Orange with black stripes etc and I fell in love with the colour. I'll be sure to post pics when it arrives. My estimated delivery date is 10th Dec but I don't want to get too excited. It would certainly make my Christmas if it did come then

I'm sure it will Spicy. December is a slow month for car sales and I think you dealer will want as many to go through as possible to boost their figures!

Think it's finally sunk in that I'm actually getting a Mini I've been after one for so long but couldn't seem to get a good deal so after it went so smoothly yesterday it seemed a little surreal.

Been worrying all day today about finance and when they check it and if mine went through okay etc so I got in touch with the dealer just to put my mind at ease. So now I can really relax and get excited knowing that it's happening for sure. I'm like a little kid at the moment waiting for xmas. Can't wait!

Heard from the dealer today and apparently they have heard back from the plant already and it's looking like it's going to be the end of this month. Can't believe it. i'd love it if it arrived that early What a week! It's been the good, the bad and the ugly.

Nice bit of news to finish the wk for sure

That's brilliant news Spicy. Now you just have to get through the next three weeks. My wait is over at 11 tomorrow! Excitement increasing!

nice touch though just remember to take it off before you drive off, might be a problem getting it under the tree though!
