OH MY GOD!!! Is this what you guys felt when you saw your cars for the first time? :D :D :D

I just popped into the garage to have a seat in a Cooper while my girlfriend was shopping and thought I'd ask if my car was in. Low and behold the dealer took me up to the 'lock-up' area and showed me my baby.

SHE IS BEAUTIFUL!:D :D :D

I've never had a new car before either so I think this has exaggerated my happiness but WOW :D :D :D

Now I have to contain myself for another 2 weeks before I get to drive her.

Anyway, enough ranting, I thought I'd share my joy:rolleyes:

Congratulations on your purchase.

I get about that excited when I see my order receipt (05/02/2002), I have a look at it at least three times a day at the moment. But that's nothing to the squeals of excitement emminated by my friends and family as I causually mention "Oh by the way I've ordered a new car.......a MINI Cooper".

But after reading your post, I'm going to have and go and visit it at the dealers every day once I get any indication that it has been delivered to them, even more exciting. :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:

MINI Cooper, Silver/Black, Chilli (Sports Suspension only), Panther leather, Auto CVT, ASC+T, MFW, Head Airbags, Alarm, Sunroof, First Aid Kit, Emergency Triangle, ISOFIX (no kids yet, but I'm not changing my "MINI me" if any arrive), Front heated Seats, Auto air con, computer, minidisc..... still thinking about the dealer accesories.

Come April it's gonna be a real MINI adventure...... :cool:

Do you mean what has the dealer thrown in for free?

They've given me nothing (yet!) but they are fitting my new headunit and remote control FOC.

Maybe I'd better go on the blag :D :D :D

2 weeks? Why in the world would it take 2 weeks to dealer prep your car?

It won't.. the new registration numbers come out on the 1st of March and I'm making myself wait until then - it will add about £500 (estimate :p ) to the value of the car when it comes to selling it.

Now all I've got to decide is whether that will be for a Cooper S or whether I'll hold on to the Cooper till she dies - at the minute the latter is a clear winner.:D :D :D
