Thought I'd pop along and say hello!
Just ordered a new Cooper S for delivery in March :D

Hyper Blue/White roof, Chili pack. Can't wait! It was going to be July but they've had a cancellation and brought it forward.

Currently got a Golf GTI 1.8T, took a MCS for a test drive and was blown away by the handling. Didn't feel quite as quick as the Golf though, as its chipped to 200hp, but never mind, Mini felt loads better behind the wheel.

Trust me (and the rest of Mini2 members), you will really enjoy your new MCS. Has plenty of power (if not you have many options to gain a few more horse here and there) and the FUN FACTOR is very high. Enjoy.

Yep, know it'll be fantastic :D

To top it all off, the missus ordered a 'cool blue' Cooper Cabrio yesterday too, also for March delivery. 2 brand new Minis on the driveway gotta look good!

heh heh.. The options list is scary! Must resist..
I thought I'd done pretty well to only come out with Chili pack, upgrade to auto aircon, radio boost CD, heated mirrors+washjets.

The dealer tried to tempt me with more.. and more.. :D

I can see when I get my car, being a member of this forum could end up being a bit pricey! ;)

You can order them from the factory, or you can get them dealer fitted afterwards (when you realise what a ghastly mistake you've made not not to have them fitted in the first place! :D ).

Paul's right, you are going to have to get used to this sort of thing!

Enjoy the MINI when it arrives, because the next four months are going to be the longest you've ever experienced...

4 VERY long months. But originally it was going to be July.. 8 months!

I'm used to forums costing me a fortune, am currently a member of a VW one and its amazing how much everyone's little good ideas mount up ;)

Think the stripes will be on within a week of ownership.. just wanna get it first and see it without!

Hi mate.


Welcome to the forum.

I also have a Golf GTI, and I am buying a MCS in Dec/Jan, there are massive switches from golfs, coming in waves!


But mine will be all black ;-)

What colour was your golf?
