Sounds like when I bought my first MINI. :eek:

I bought it from a garage local to my parents, but they're 90 miles from me. :eek:

Hardly slept the night before I picked it up and the 2 hour train journey seemed to take an age! Good luck tomorrow. :)

Congratulations!

What are the niggles you're on about ? The car, or with the handover ?

Great feeling getting a new car :D

Well the niggles were that I did feel the checks were done properly,

1. the front number plate was cracked( new one being sent out by dealer)
2. left side black plastic wheel arch badly scuffed (new one being sent out)
3. valve cap missing on front driver side tyre (replaced while onsite)
4. refelector on driver side doorpad missing (replacedwhile onsite)
5. Bumper had a small ding( dealer says they dont fix every single dent before it leaves the premisis and this is standard Mini practice)
thought this was odd but took his word for it, gonna post here on Mini2 and find out if this is so.

Felt like the salesman didnt do a proper check before handing over and neither did the service team if basic thngs like these were overseen.

Overall it was apleasant experience, the Salesman was a nice bloke and the dealership in all made me feel comfortable.
