United-States Soon to be new Mini Cooper S Clubman Owner

Hi all! New to the forum and new to Mini.

I ordered my 2011 Mini Cooper S Clubman yesterday with expected delivery 6-8 weeks! I am ecstatic about this car! I can not think of one thing that I do not like about this car. THe style is awesome and the drive is even better.

My previous car was a 2004 Scion xB which I loved. This is clearly a huge step up.

My color choice for the mini was Chili Red with Black Roof and C-Pillars. I am getting jet black wheels. I had a few extras put on (iPod/bluetooth, Piano Black dash, checkered cloth, and the cold weather package, and maybe some more that I have forgotten about), but nothing too fancy.

Upon delivery I will post pics!

I look forward to thoroughly enjoying my new Mini once it arrives!

If anyone has any suggestions or advice for new Mini owners please let me know.

Thanks,
Drew

Seriously! It is killing me having to wait... I read an article from car & driver which tells the details of the 2011 model and I have to say it sounds like all they have done is make a great thing better.

I am super excited about this car and cannot wait to get my hands on it.

Yes I love it! I already have an on going list of mods that i am interested in doing... starting off with performance stuff like changing out the exhaust.

Mods won't happen for a while because the car set me back quite a bit but once i regain some of my funds it will be enjoyable to work on this car, I am sure.

My Mini has officially been produced and is now waiting at the docks to be shipped to the US.

Pretty excited. So far it seems like things are ahead of schedule.
