After being ordered on Saturday 15th September 2007, I finally picked up my new Cooper D today!! :D Last night I was really unsure about the whole thing for some reason, but by this morning I was fine again and actually really excited. Went to the dealers early, 08:10am :D signed the rest of the paperwork and paid up. Went out to the car for the handover, going through all the Nav etc, then we tried the Ipod, salesman plugged it in…nothing…tried again…nothing. :( He said it might need re-coding so took it to the workshop for me. 10 minutes later I was told that recoding wasn’t going to work, the unit was faulty and needed replacing…by this time I was nearly in tears :(. I told them I wanted it fixing as I wanted the car perfect so the sales manager gave me the keys to his Clubman S and said I could take that till mine was done :) Just over an hour later I got a call to say my car was fixed and off I went again to collect my new baby!! :D Top job Specialist Cars :)

Spirits were dampened slightly by the whole ‘episode’ but ive now got a set of free rubber mats on there way :D :p and I absolutely LOVE the car!! She’s brilliant, everything works perfectly, WOW! :D :D :D :D Its really different to drive to my MINI ONE, its smoother, but its just as fun, though im being good and running it in :D

So glad you have a happy ending to your day. Your roof looks absolutely fantastic! I'm leaning more and more towards getting another MINI in a years time and having a custom roof graphic. Lovely, lovely car!
