We have a Week 34 build also! Hopefully my parents will take the car. They are trying to decide amongst a few vehicles :confused: :eek:.

Wow, you mean there's a chance they won't take delivery on it after ordering it?

What gives there? What other cars are they deciding between?

Wow, lots of orange! I'm surprised. I like the orange but didn't think it would be a color you'd see a lot. Nice pick!

My parents went to see the Cooper cabrio (this one is BRG/Cordoba Beige) at Flow MINI this morning and fell in love :D so hopefully it's still a go. MINIUSA OL still shows "On Order" :rolleyes: :) but who knows. Here are the specs:

Cooper Convertible
5 speed
Purple Haze exterior
Black leatherette interior
Black top
Anthracite trim
Chrome Line exterior
16" 5-star wheels
Cold Weather package
Multi-function steering wheel


The car has now entered production as of today 8/7, but this afternoon I was able to delete the HK system. It should be completed by the end of next week! :cool: :cool: :D

Yeah, mine still says "on order" in the owner's lounge.

Had to call ASKMini to get the production week (week 34).

Wonder why the OL can't tell you what the production week is??

Yeah, I don't know! Our status was the same as yours showing "On Order". The dealer had an updated list and it showed that it was moving into the production stage and was probably due to be completed next week - so that's ahead of schedule because I believe Week 34 is the week after next, the week of August 16th.

Yep Sportty, should be together on Don Quiote Southhampton 8/21 Port Hueneme 9/14. Saw a Hot Orange in person at a dealer preview last night. Very Nice....

Well ... I'm excited to have a shipmate, but I sure hope I can catch an earlier boat! If figure I should be at the dock by Aug. 13th. I'd hate to think about the poor girl sitting there on a dock waiting for over a week.

:mad:

So Herb: When is your completion date? And where did you get the shipping info? I looked all over the NYK website and never found anything ... the schedule pages wouldn't even load.

Production Completed (Week 33)

Owners lounge shows "In Production" as does voice computer at Ask Mini, BUT the live person says production is complete and quality control done today and "Awaiting Transport". It will be a day or two before WW has a booking number. So, Sportty, we be sitting on the dock together. What's your VIN last 7? Mine TF80354.

I'm Awaiting Transport as well ... It's cool that we're both sittin' there chillin' ... hopefully in the sun! My VIN is TF80317. I guess I'm a few hours older than you!

However, from other posts, it doesn't sound like we will be shipped on WW. Mini seems to be using NYK instead for the West Coast. And unfortunately they don't offer any decent tracking information. I'll keep looking around for more info on this one. (Look in the July and August production forums here).

Got my VIN too!

According to ASKMini, mine started production on the 6th, but isn't schedule to be done until the 18th. Hopefully that involves a lot of quality control.

I'm getting nervous reading the problems the Europeans have been having.

Another question...

If you go to "order detail" in the Owners Lounge, it tells you the VIN and production number.

There's a box below that says "Factory Order Options." My box is blank, even though I got plenty of options. Does anyone else have information in this box? I hope my options are included.

Options Box (Owners Lounge)

My box is empty too, and I ordered most all the options. The same thing was the case last year on a BMW order I had.
