Hey everyone,

I finally ordered my Mini today! HOORAY!!! I went with the MCS since my hubby wanted it. I even have the production number !! CR/W !!!!!

I ended up ordering from Mike Kost at Classic Mini in Ohio. What a great experience it has been dealing with them so far. They are SO nice and helpful. Plus, they don't work on commission so they're not trying to hard-sell you. I highly recommend ordering from them.

Now comes the wait. I CAN'T STAND WAITING!!!!!

Mary

P.S. I'm really happy because I get a red dash and doors since I went with the MCS!!!!!

Congrats! Classic MINI sounds like one of the better MINI dealership (in terms of ordering) in the nation. Even from my brief experience with them (alas, I did not order from them), they were fantastic.

Congrats Mary! Good to see you went with a MCS. ;) FABULOUS choice on getting the color coded dash.... It looks sooooo good, especially in red! :D

Are you flying out to Classic and then driving home or having it shipped?

Hey Stef,

I'm so excited! I really didn't think about flying out there and driving back. I was going to have it shipped. Ohio is pretty far and I don't want to drive across country with my 2 1/2 year old in the back. He would hate it!!

A disease with a name MOD, MINI Obsessive Disoder.

I think it is a disease. I kind of scare myself sometimes.

Cooper76, I feel like I'm actually part of the family now! I've just been a poser up until now. I'm going to be a Mini owner soon!!! Hooray!

I don't think I would try to drive cross country with a 2 1/2 year old either! Sounds like shipping is a much better plan ;) Some people like to fly out and drive home because the long drive knocks off a huuuge chunk of the break-in period in just a few days.

Just wait until the MINI is actually here and then you feel the need to start modding it... it never ends! :p :D

Hah, I also just ordered a new MCS with the same CR/W and body-color interior trim! At first I was thinking, "Geez, what am I doing?" since I really don't need a new car... but I just couldn't resist! Now, that thought lingers a bit, but it has been mostly crowded out by the thought of the first ride. I'm going to Germany during January and February of the new year, and the car ought to be ready (or very nearly so) by the time I get back. Freakin' sweet, I say!

Before I ordered the car, I had been thinking the same thing - "what am I doing?". I wasn't sure if I was doing the right thing. Since I ordered the car, all I can think is "I can't WAIT till it arrives"!!! Every time I think about getting my new Mini, a happy feeling just overcomes me! :)

Mary,
Congrats. Waiting is sometimes so hard. But it is fun to see the progress on the miniusa site, then checking on her progress waiting for her ship. She set sail on 12/5, and is suppose to be in GA on the 19th. Maybe to the dealer for me to pickup by the 23-4. Nice Christmas present.
