Does anyone know if electrical adjustable seats are an option for the 2014 Mini anywhere in the world? As far as I know, they are not an option in Australia.

If not an option, does anyone know if the seats can be retro fitted with electrical adjustments?

The reason that I ask is that we have had 2 Mini's and my wife drives with the steering wheel up around her chin. It would be wonderful if I could unlock the car with my key and have the seat return to my own driving position before I attempt to get in the car (same as most BMW's).

Im sure it could be done by an auto electrical specialist, the seats do all exist with the auto memory functions, my Range Rover has them.
Either that or go get a wife the same size as you. ;)

Doesnt take a moment though does it to slide the seat back, you would be spending a couple of thousand to save 10 secs in time.

Hahaha! Changing out the wife would be like signing my own death warrant! :D

I'm not concerned over the cost. And I know it takes only a few seconds to move a seat, but this is one of those little things that has grown to really bug me over the years, especially as I have to move the Mini everytime I want to get to my F30 (our cars have to be parked behind each other - and before you ask, no, I cannot park my car behind the Mini. Logistically, that's just the way it has to be at our house).

I must be getting old and cranky but, for a fully optioned Cooper S, I expect electric seats. ;)
