Question 2009 Cars Spec

Hi there

Just joined as I'm looking at getting a new or nearly new MCS.

I was wondering if anybody knows if there will be any changes in spec or options available on a 2009 car?

I've heard that the 2009 production starts on 01/09/08 so would I have to wait until after this date to find out and order?

The MINI UK configurator should already reflect 2009 options.

There will be some color changes effective with Week 50 builds:
Code:
<del> Astro Black
<del> Lightning Blue
<add> Midnight Black
<add> Horizon Blue

i nearly went for laser blue but i loved the darker lightning blue after (fortunately) seeing one at another dealers before i placed my order - surprised it hasnt been popular enough to avoid being deleted, personally.

just glad ive got my mcs ordered for sept now ive found this out!

The answer is probably "Not yet." but I am wondering if anyone has actually seen the upcoming Horizon Blue - even in print?

No I haven't seen it yet but imagine it might be a dull dark blue - A darker version of space blue

That would be unfortunate, I'd agree. I was hoping for something light infused and airy - like the horizon.
