very pleased to hear that and hopefully mine won't take to long then I spoke to them few days ago and still not received loom and that be just over 2 weeks they have allowed them selves 4 days to fit it I have asked if it be done by Easter 15th April and she said it better be , they have been very good to me and kept me up to date and lent me a car so still mobile just glad it isn't costing me as I was told the loom is £3.5kSo after a 1 month wait (3 weeks wait for the part itself) the dealership fitted a completely new loom. BMW factory were citing quality issues as the reason for the delay - doesn't bode well does it
Ill be honest I did make a fair amount of fuss about not wanting the car back unless it came back exactly as it went in - i.e. no trim rattles, noises etc..
Anyway, Im pleased to have our MINI back and touch wood so far so good, ill be straight back onto MINI if I encounter any gremlins.
Apparently the Dealership had another MINI in their workshop for exactly the same issue, perhaps this forum should keep a close eye on this issue in case it becomes a pattern e.g. like Fartnugget's car
