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).
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.
Headed up to Ralph Schomp MINI to check out window tinting, and my MA told me something interesting. Big demand for MINIs, so much so that people are selling their newly received Clubbies for a profit days after purchase. Curious.
Has anyone else heard about this? I did a quick Craig's List search, but I didn't find any ads for Clubbies.
The boat arrives 30 July in CA. I'm planning to pick up the Clubbie during the week of 11 Aug.
I liked the looked of the 35%. I was worried it would be too dark and too reflective. I've heard (through out this forum) that the sun roof rolling shader doesn't block out enough sun. Plus, living in CO (where it is sunny quite a bit), I was looking at ways to solve that issue.
The stratosphere sun shades offer a sun shade between the actual sun roof and the roller shade. They're custom cut to fit the Clubbies dual sun roof. It's an option. I'm not sure how much darker I want to take the sun roofs themselves. Plus, I like the idea of moving them when I want.
While I didn't see too much of an issue with seeing out the barn doors (that is a complaint I've read a few times in Clubman reviews), does the 50% tint curb your rearview mirror views?
So, today in Colorado, we're having rainy, gray skies. However, we managed to pick up our very snazzy Mini Cooper S Clubman in British Racing Green today. The drive home was a little hectic with the rain and rain-splatter on the way home on the interstate.
Trying to get used to a manual transmission again, I did have a couple of stalls during a traffic jam on the interstate's Monument Hill. Yet, I did make it home. It will take me a few weeks to get the feel of shifting again
After 5 months of waiting, the Clubbie is finally here.

The car ran perfectly .

looking for torque setting on big end bolts ,head stretch bolts. also what oil is recommended +capacity.....
Thanks in advance and for help so far ...
I would like to disable the warning sound when I am reversing. I have to reverse out of a tight spot under my house while we are doing construction and the sound annoys me so much I can't concentrate on what I need to do. Have any of you done this? Do you know of a way how? Thanks.
I have MINI Clubman D (2010). The issue is with rear door. When I start to drive always pop up message that doors are open, but both of them are closed. This is very annoying specially in trafic jams..
Is anymone who could suggest what is wrong or how to fix it?
Also rear windows...
