No, but my cabrio started production today!

Now if my dealer was just able to get the rear fog light added in time. I'm not confident that they did!

Are they putting a full set of toggles from factory?

:( too bad. I was looking for someone to go down to the VPC with and pitch a tent and watch our cars until they put them on the truck.

:)

Seriously, good for you. I recall the wait the first time round, back in '02, was unbearable. Making an earlier boat is incredible!

Jingu Maru, voyage EA-444-JGM Leaves Southhampton on 9th November and into Newark 17th November!
Ducttape: My MCC is listed as "En Route" in the MOL but I've been unable to confirm at the 2W website what ship it is on? I've tried entering my VIN in the "Auto Cargo" section but no luck.

Any advice on what steps you took?

Welcome Betty! Glad to have you on the boards, and on board!

Are you in the NY area? Coming into Newark too?

And, have you been following the Hudson Bay thread? GREAT opportunity to the new Cabriols (Can you believe a snae person just said that?)

Did you enter the ENTIRE vin number? I first tried just the last part, which the dealer uses. Didn't work.

Let me know if that's it.
Yea - I entered the entire VIN as it is posted in the MOL. I also had tried the last 7 digits since I read that somewhere too. No luck. Rats

I was going to reply but got distracted for a moment. The boat left 2 days ago from Southampton.

Can't you just die!?! This is the third MINI I've bought and although I'm not as whacko as I was for the first, I am pumped! MINI, MINI, MINI...

I'm ready to go camp out at the VPC. Maybe hold a BIG sign, saying "USA welcomes MINI" Think it'd make it to CNN? The National Enquirer?: "Whacko Goo-Goo Over Coo-Coo(per)"

Ok, back to work now, before I have to fire myself.

Wow, THAT was a close one. Did you see that? THIS HUGE iceberg just floated by the Jingu Maru. Huge. White everywhere. Man oh man I hope the captain isn't pulling an Exxon Valdiz on this voyage...



I don't think I can take much more of this anxiety.

I'm on JPPT (Jingu too)

Last I checked, my baby was soaking some rays near Newfoundland. After reading some of the horror stories regarding the convertible I have begun to have second thoughts. :(
I just hope I get a good copy.
