I received two tickets from BMW today for the Melbourne Motor Show also saying there is a Mini Cooper S funtion on Friday 1st March from 6.00pm to 8.00pm and is invitation only.

So who is going? - should we meet up?

Andy:D :D :D :D :D

Andy, I'll be there at 6. I'll have a MINI lapel badge on.

You'll find me hovering around the 'S'(s) with a camera.

It will be interesting to see how many 'S -list' people will be there, and compare positions on the lists... ...and delivery charges.


Regards, Eltel

The Melbourne show starts Thursday 28 Feb and the last day is Monday 11 March.

I have been informed that the S should be available in May for test drive.

Have you had a test drive of the cooper?

Jeez you'd want to hurry up mate. I registered my interest July 1999, put a deposit down on 12 Nov 2001, and my 'S' is due in Nov 2002.

The guy at BMW said there will be about 80 people at a time viewing the S and they are going to start it up.

Andy that would be fine with me. I'll be on my lonesome, wife staying home. I'm booked in for the 6pm party, but I might stay for the 7pm party too, if I can beat the security.

Spending just one hour with an 'S' may not be enough if there are 79 other people trying to sit in it. That's just 45 seconds per person. Unless we are quick we'll probably miss out.

Let's see how it pans out. Would like to meet you and your lovely wife.

Regards, ElTel
