Ordered my Cooper S yesterday. Chili red with white roof and white bonnet stripes, chilli pack, auto aircon, full leather (black), CD Boost, Harmon Kardon HiFi.

Not sure about the interior trim colour yet, have asked for anthracite but may change to alloy patina as it's starting to grow on me.

Estimated delivery late November to early December.

I cant wait!! :D

The Waiting Game

Congrats on the order!

If you are anything like me, you will be eating, sleeping and dreaming MINI during the countdown to delivery (D) day.

Look forward to seeing some pics when you get it.

Lovetts in Swindon reckoned they couldn't get one until March 2005, Rydale in Cardiff had one available in November, North Oxford have spaces for February.

I ended up ordering from 'Damon Hill' in Warwickshire, as they could get one for Nov/Dec and there's obviously the celebrity motorsport connection. I wonder if Damon will be there to hand my keys over.... ;)

Will post pics when it's here.

We've been quoted several times by our local dealership Ocean Plymouth, 7 weeks delivery :sigh:
I'm going to call them in about 10mins and clarify this.

Me: About those delivery times. Can you just confirm for me the 7 weeks you quoted?
Them: Hang on a sec, I'll just confirm that.......Sorry! Thats just gone up too....The end of Novemeber!

:confused: Why be so crap about something so fundametal to a car purchase? Feel let down but glad I read this post otherwise wouldn't have known.
Ah well......

We were going to order one today actually. Thats why I was so interested when I saw the topic :D :rolleyes:

Really needed the car for the new term time in September as my partner is a teacher and it just would have been very convenient.
On another note we wanted to swap the 17" Wheels in the Chilli pack ofr the Union Jack stylee 16" Alloys in the accessory book (I'd heard this could be done if the dealership was flexible)The reply? No can do.
Not very happy with the dealership at the moment. All the same I think Rachels set her heart on this so we'll just have to muddle along like everyone else does :)

I ordered my MCS last week from Lovetts in Swindon as not bothered about the wait - well I am but as only had my MC since March 2003 seems kind of right to keep it two years before changing. If you want to get MCS's fairly quickly I've heard the London dealers get the best allocations and can get you them quicker than most places. Park Lane and Chiswick are meant to be able to get cars fairly speedily - not sure how soon though.
