Hot off the news! :)

UK MINI dealers have now been informed that the MINI Convertible has been put on 'unadvisory spec' status. Customers will no longer be able to spec factory build convertible models.

MINI will still be building a number of 'stock' vehicles, such as the sidewalk, to meet continuing demand for the convertible, and any new customers enquiring into the convertible will be sold one of these stock vehicles.

There will be plenty of new cars in stock available Jo if you do get the urge....

I'd imagine supplies won't dry up until the end of the year :)

I'm officially driving a museum piece now! :D Just in time for the summer... which here in the UK looks more like mid-winter most of the time :( Perhaps Mini are being more commercially astute that we might give them credit for - the peak of sales in the UK will have been when there was the prospect of a good summer a while back :wink:

Seen a few sidewalks around here but not many......looks like the sidewalk will be one of the really rare special editions....YAY..........

I love my car so much already! It's so great...Perfect for a Melbourne Winter/Spring/Summer/Autumn!

I'd imagine cars will still be registered after September on 58 plates, and there may be the odd car remaining unregistered next year that gets registered on an 09 plate even ;)
