Hi all
Has anyone, like me, applied for/sent off for the 'driving' book from the American site or an air freshner from the UK site and not received anything ?

Chris
Anyone got the USA 'driving' book ?? - What's in it ?

The MINI driving book was a bunch of bunk. No good specs or info. It was a promotional yuppy oriented glossy paper rant about "motoring", personal choice, etc. A waste of trees and ink. You didn't miss anything. I got two, one from miniusa and one from my dealer.
Threw them both out.

Chris, I got my 'MINI Beats' CD the other day although it was more out of curiosity than a desire the have some wierd trippy music for the car..

The air freshener never arrived, despite 2 'registrations' on the relevant web-site. As for the Driving book - surely they'll only post that to US peeps?

Dogger - How ???

How did you get the CD ??
Was it a freebie ?

Chris

When I registered on the USA site and asked for the 'driving' book it all appeared OK !
Has anyone got a spare one they would be willing to donate ?

The Mini CD was a freebie from a similar 'temporary' website as the Air Freshener (something like minibeats.co.uk ?). It's full of 'dull souless dance music' (as Eddie from Ab Fab would say) and I'd swap it for a Yellow air freshener any day as that would match my car! :)

I suspect the US website will hapily take your details, but as their marketing is pitched at US owners I bet their computer systems either filter out responses from over the pond or they just don't post overseas and it's sat in some sorting office somewhere gathering dust :confused:

No joy here either...

registered for an airfeshener months ago and I have yet to receive anything!:(

I'll be mightily annoyed if BMW are just using it as a mass data collection exercise without a decent fulfillment programme to back it up.

MINI Kit in Europe

I was in Germany recently for the Essen Motor Show and some travel. When I stopped in at MINI Munich, they had some cool magazines from MINI events in Europe. One had a really nice CD of ambient / dj kind of music. Wish we could get those here (printed in English - I can't read them) in the US.

I did make sure to pick up some MINI pens and a MINI hat. The stuff was pretty cheap given the exchange rates right now! They also have a full catalog of little items and clothing...

I ordered the MINI Beats CD the day I read something about it on this site just before Christmas, and finally received it through the post last week - ironically the day after I moaned in the chat room that it hadn't arrived yet...maybe someone from MINI UK was secretly listening? ;)
