Clubman Cooper D ordered 19th Sept and delivery to Shrewsbury dealer quoted for 25Oct.

Email recieved today confirming it's built and delivery to dealer expected within the next week. So not a bad turn-around :)

I guess you have it now, we've been quoted 3-4 weeks from ordering our Roadster on the 29th October. The Convertible is made on the same line.

Shipments from Baltimore Distribution Center?

Anyone out there waiting for a MINI from the new Baltimore distribution center? Curious to hear how long others have been waiting.
I didn't order mine online, but the dealer found what I was looking for in one already in the US at the Baltimore distribution center. That was 2.5 weeks ago and it hasn't yet made it to the dealer yet. After doing research using the VIN, I found out it had arrived in the US at the end of August. Its now been well over 2 months that this car has been on US soil but has gone nowhere. I also found out that this distribution center is new and opened around September. Today, the dealer told me that they've had a lot of the 2015's get held up at port and, more recently, they've stopped updating the shipping data now that they're trying to push them out- so they don't even know if its left the distribution center. Needless to say, this is frustrating. Just wondering if anyone else has been waiting through this new distribution center growing pain, too.

It seems to be a distribution problem thats delaying my car........just polling to see if it has affected any others in a similiar way, see if there is a pattern at Thorne.;)
Just for curiositys sake, please vote, and post here if there were any good or bad points to the delivery experience..........
