LCI Order

Hi guys...

Decided last week to visit my local dealer to have a look at the LCI and see how awesome I thought the new lights were, and they are rather snazzy - safe to say I'll be using my indicators at any given opportunity.

There was a demonstrator stood outside, not yet registered that looked the spitting image of my previous SD and the new lights just set it off.. Asked Mel the saleswoman to run me some figures on it, but it had a fairly huge specification and was coming out kinda ridiculously priced. So after a few days of deliberating and running through idea specifications, I placed my order on Thursday evening for the following...

XR52 | F56 MINI Cooper S 3-Door Hatch LCI
A94 | Midnight Black
KDE1 | Cloth/leatherette Black Pearl Carbon Seats
7Y2 | Chili Pack
2F2 | 17" Cosmos Spoke alloy wheels in black
2TC | Sport Double-clutch automatic transmission Seven speed
2VC | Mobility kit (seen as I asked for no run flats)
2XC | John Cooper Works sport leather steering wheel (in conjunction with Sports Auto)
313 | Electric folding exterior mirrors
320 | Model badge deletion
345 | Chrome Line interior
3L2 | Piano Black Exterior
402 | Panoramic electric glass sunroof
420 | Darkened rear glass
473 | Front centre armrest
494 | Seat heating for driver and front passenger
4AA | Anthracite headlining
4GU | MINI Yours Fibre Alloy Interior
674 | Harman Kardon Hi-Fi system
4C1 | Colour Line - Carbon Black

The first lot of quotations were coming out way too expensive, so I mentioned that I would be going to have a look on Carwow to see what kind of discount I could get. After some negotiation I managed to secure a 12% discount on list price and at 2.9% APR, not quite as much as the 20% I could've saved on the pre-lci order but still a decent chunk!

Estimated delivery is 30th April!

Bonus is that the insurance is cheaper than my BMW 116d... which baffles me, but I'm not complaining!

Sounds like a great spec!

Funnily, my Cooper S insurance is cheaper than my Passat 1.6 TDI was which is weird....

Thanks bud! I'm pretty sure it's going to look identical to my previous F56 SD, but that isn't a bad thing.

I'm guessing the BMW/Volkswagen's are at a higher risk level than the MINI?
