Im off to JCWorks at the end of the month to have my current Classic Cooper Sports serviced. While Im there Im going to talk to the Sales team about ordering my Works S. Im shocked that if I order it from them I will not receive the TLC. Its alot of mucking around to order the car from BMW, then drop it off at Coopers and wait again for the converstion. Ive waited 5 years for this car! I know another 2 weeks will not seem that bad but I just want to drive the damm thing!!!! Whats the feeling about this on here??? Cheers

But if I go to the BMW garage, the waiting lists have rocketed since the press photos, even though I was the first person in the world to put an order on for one (it was done with the Managing Director of Mini, Trevor Hougton Berry at the London Motor Show a few years back.) Ive not heard a thing from it!

Ive got to deal with stuck up BMW sales people in my local BMW/Mini garage (well, Mini salespeople that know nothing about the Mini people) who keep asking for £2k deposit! Are they having a laugh or what!!! Least the lads at Coopers are well on the ball!

Thanks for the comments!

Im like a kid on Christmas day, and have been since the motor show in Birmingham where they first showed the car!

Wanted the S then, so put the only pre order form in that was available on the stand. Boss man (Mr Houghton Berry)asked what we had ordered and said that was the first one for the S he had seen. Then showed me a mock up photo of the S from Germany that had two different types of wheels (one set on each side). Asked me what one I prefered, and I said the deeper dish one. havent seen the wheel on the car since though. The other wheel is the one they have on for the press shots (one the blue cooper s).
Been waiting ever since! Still cant decide on colour though. She wants black, I want something brighter. The yellow is a bit soft (in colour), but does remind me of the britax coopers which I always wanted to do on my ole 68 cooper S years ago. (never had the balls to re-spray it though!). Only 5-6 Months more waiting!!!!!!

Ive read a couple of reports in the car press that say with 200 odd brake horse power the Sooper Cooper (I like that!) will out accelerate the odd scooby! Thats enough for me!
