Just wondering who else is getting theirs on 1st September?

Will I spot any locals at my dealer (Williams Stockport)?

(I have the 10am slot, there is a 9am slot and I could have had it but I didn't want to pick it up in rush hour! - and yes I've taken the 1st and 2nd off work as a MINI honeymoon with Fevio)

I am collecting mine in Cheshire on the 1st! I've taken two days off as well, one to trundle round family members in the North West and one to take it back down to London. I will be in Stockport seeing my sister so I'll look out for you

Ha ha, whereabouts in Cheshire? I am meeting my parents at the windmill (A556/M6 roundabout) for a pub lunch on the 1st and to show mine off.

Look out for a 64 plate MC in VO with black roof, black cosmos and stripes and LED headlights! last 3 letters FEV :)

I'm getting from Leama Cars in Knutsford...long story, basically bought it through a friend who runs a leasing company so gets volume discounts so saved me quite a few £! Either way I'll be right next to you haha

I will! Nice spec, mine is a little more boring, all black MCS, 64 plate ending LUF. (and a dodgy interior that I didn't realise would come out brown) Can't wait!

I'm picking my MC in White Silver up from Lloyds in Carlisle at 10am they also hourly space their collection times to allow you to thoroughly check the car and answer any questions.

I've seen the car prior to it being prepared and I can't wait to finally own it after a 4½ month wait.:D

Fingers crossed that the weather is kind to us lucky ones on the 1st:cool:

3 now!
Starting to count down hours rather than days!:D

It's weird on this one day of the year so many more F56s are going to be on the road. Special day 1st Sept.


(well 2 days of the year since we also have 1st March)
