I'm so excited! My Countryman should be under production at the Oxford plant as I am typing this! This area of the forum looks pretty...lean. Is anyone else waiting on an order?? I feel like I did waiting for my first child! :big_grin:

I, too, thought that it was going to be built in the Netherlands but in the Mini Owner's Lounge is says that my vehicle is in production in the Oxford plant! It is due to complete production on May 30th, 2017. I was surprised it is there and not the Netherlands. Do you think order tracking might be wrong?

Ok, so curiosity got the best of me and I called. Lounge still says Oxford; I'd thought the Netherlands like @brassd (since it's and F60), but on the phone they think it's Austria. I guess I don't really care as long as it IS being built, right?!??

Perhaps they are being made in all three locations!!

Enjoy your new car, let us know what you think about it in the Countryman section.

Ack, so today apparently really IS the day. For production to begin. I don't know why the date kept changing, but an email from the dealer last night said the database was showing today.

And my F60 was officially born last night! It was waiting for inspection when I got my update. Not too shabby so far since we just submitted our specifications to the dealer on Friday, May 12th. 3 weeks ago!! Waiting for shipping is going to kill me, isn't it?

Floating in the middle of the Atlantic! Set to hit Baltimore, MD, late next week via WW. Glad the TS Cindy won't affect the ship much. I'm hoping to be behind the wheel by mid July :) Looks like the REAL production facility was Born, Netherlands!

Just a waiting game now then, if it helps at all your going to really love it when it arrives,
and you have time to decide on the name you are going to give it in the mean time....

Oh, we've already named him! Billy Shears >:D

Set to dock tomorrow night in Baltimore. Then I hear THAT wait on transport is painful. Fingers crossed!

Excitingggg!!
I drive past the Oxford plant every month or so as one of my sons lives quite close. It has a funky exterior. Big new building going on. They do tours. I need to get one booked. Love to see how they are made.
