New interior changes starting in July 2017

Has this been posted here? New fuel gauge (way better), Apple Carplay, something with the cockpit lights changing from orange to white (didn't catch that), MINI driving modes changed places with the head-up display.

have these changes (Standard Equipment) been confirmed by Mini, and if so, are they country specific or standard equipment for all countries?

I would imagine the cockpit lights orange/white might be like BMW's when you can choose the background light colour for climate control knob read out colours and whether you want orange/white readouts to the odometer, trip computer and backgrounds to the dials.

A bit bummed by this as I'm awaiting delivery of my MINI within the next couple of weeks. CarPlay would have been nice but ah well, seem like very minor changes.

It would have been nice to see the idrive controller raised up slightly on the hatches.

It is not "Old School" if you can not put a Weber on it.

The only thing I would really be interested in is the new gas gauge. The rest? Meh!
The HUD looks like the display on a NAVDY HUD unit.

Keep it up and they're going to turn it into a "normal" car.
