What can I expect at handover, first MINI? - Have read a few horror stories to be honest!

Did you cars come with petrol/diesel? (How much?)

I got just under half a tank from Halliwell Jones in Wilmslow, because I've had a few cars off them they literally just gave me the keys and said "see you!". They did offer to come out and show me around the car but I declined as the my previous was an F56 too.

I got a full tank of petrol from Williams Stockport, they are all the nicest people I have ever met when it comes to car dealerships

I actually went to Halliwell Jones Warrington originally and they were absolutely awful so I walked straight out and went to Williams Stockport. I spoke to Mark who is literally the nicest guy on this planet and I ordered my brand new F56 not long after so it just shows how rubbish Halliwell Jones are...

It therefore seems to depend on dealer. We had half a tank petrol red carpet signs flowers etc. Both local mini dealers talked us through the cars in special handover bay's. All minis we've bought have been a wonderfully exciting experience.! Hmmmm making me want another!

It definitely depends on the dealer.
Halliwell Jones warrington sales did not ring me back on numerous occasions.
I bought my previous Mini from Williams Manchester who where great, but they couldn't match the deal I got from Bowker Mini Blackburn.
So I got my current car from them. Won't bore you with details as its been discussed before.
But briefly
1 car was dirty underneath was covered in mud
2 parked up a kerb outside on collection.
3 given keys and told car was outside

Will never buy another car from them, sales manager offered an insult of compensation. So rang Mini uk and complained. Eventually accepted what I considered a decent package of compensation.

ABOVE ALL DO NOT TAKE THE CAR UNLESS IT IS IMMACULATE, UNMARKED and YOUR HAPPY WITH IT..

Good to hear that you're enjoying it and the auto box.

I've now got 3 more sleeps before getting my Cooper SD. What did you get?
COME ON GUYS I'M WAITING! MJ, I'm slightly concerned yours is gonna be a carbon copy of mine... :( but still hoping you have a massive grin on your face when you pick it up.

Mine arrived on 5/17 while I was away. I picked him up this past Sunday. On Friday I was restless the whole day. Saturday night? I couldn't even sleep! I was like a kid at Christmas when the keys were placed into my hands for the very first time. Enjoy and happy motoring..
