Not in the magical cards for this year, but perhaps someday. I have, however, just been listening to the appropriate music.

All,

I just got word that my Mini Cooper S Clubman has just gone into production. No info yet on the Owner's Lounge, but hopefully, I'll have an update soon.

cheers,
albert

Albert, you know if you call MINIUSA, they can tell you what stage of production your car is in.

Hey man don't trust the web page. I have had my clubman for about 3 weeks now and it still shows it as at distribution center and that just updated last week . You have to do some rides with the club when you get yours. I have been on the last 2 rides and the only clubman so far.

I've heard that about the website tracking and its lack of updating. I'll probably have to make a couple of calls to MINIUSA too. I'll def look into the rides; they sound like fun.

Green Cooper Still "on order" but with a change

Greetings, all:

According to the Owners' Lounge as ASK-MINI, my BRG/BLK ClubbieS is still in the "on order" status. No production week has been established, but any day now!

I did make a rather large change to my order (getting it in right before production!). I placed the order on 14 Apr, when gas prices were floating around the $3.80 mark. Of course, gas is +$4.00 and heading up in the near future.

Given that, I decided to give the auto transmission and go with the manual transmission + limited slip differential. I'll sacrifice the in-car latte' drinking for the better fuel efficiency. Not to mention I save $750 with the transmission change.

I know the Mini is already pretty good on gas; I just think every little bit helps.

cheers,
albert

We did the same thing but for a different reason. Changed from the auto to the manual xmission at the last minute so we could flat tow the clubbie.

I didn't know towing was an issue with the auto Clubbie. I guess another good reason to change. Plus, the manual gives me a change to take advantage of the "mild hybrid" and "start/stop" technology (only available on the manual).

You can tow the auto with a tow dolly, but can only flat tow the manual. Mine is a towd behind our RV and flat towing is much more convenient.

Ah, ok. As long as the Clubbie gets to go on a trip, then everyone is a winner

Green Cooper ClubS in production!!

Greetings, all:

Just called the ASK-MINI line (plus checked the Owners' Lounge), and both confirmed that my ClubbieS is "officially" in production. According the helpful, disembodied voice on the ASK-MINI line, estimated date of completion is July 1. We'll see how the production processes proceeds.

It's very nice when the status has movement. I've been sitting at on order for about a month.

I've still yet to see any Clubbies on the road here in Colorado Springs. Perhaps (I'm thinking Aug with transport), I'll be the first.

cheerio!
albert
