Hi guys,
Trading in our 03 red Cooper today for a new Cooper in electric blue.
We were expecting a delivery date around mid Jan but were very surprised
to be told it'll be ready on December 7th. Wicked!!!
I put this down to a lot of
people wanting '05 registration or is delivery always this quick coming up to
Christmas? We also asked about an ipod conversion, but this is only available
in th US apparently.

Thats pretty good!

Sounds like your dealer has good allocation.

I ordered a cooper a month ago and have a date of mid december - and I was happy with that! :D

Thats excellent on both counts. Just by way of example I ordered my S at the start of September and delivery takes place on 17 December 2004 and that was on the basis that the car was taking up one of the fast track BMW Service allocation spaces...so your delivery times are very quick!

Regards
Christopher

When i ordered my 03 MINI ONE it only took five weeks.I ordered it the week before Christmas 02 and i recieved it on the 29th Jan 03.However ,i ordered my 05 MINI ONE on the 29th June and didn't get that until the 13th September (10 weeks).Allocations always confuse me,i suppose its what we have to go through to get our 'made to measure' MINIs.I think the wait adds to the experience though and you forget how long you've waited as soon as you have taken delivery.

It was custom ordered and we were told that we could not amend the spec
after Nov 15th. We did not have to make any compromise on spec to get
the quick delivery time (unlike on my BMW a year ago). :eb:

Must have been a cancelled order, they couldn't build a car that quick.:confused:
