I ordered on 11/7/14 and my f55 MCS Midnight Black was completed today and I am hoping it would be on its way to the USA next week. This is my fourth Mini purchase having owned the R56, R55 and R60. I was told to expect the car end of December but it looks like it will be here earlier. A great early Christmas present to me!

Also waiting on my F55S order.....

I ordered my F55S on Nov 3 at my Florida dealership. It completed its build on Nov 14. But so far as of today Nov 23, it's still listed as 'Awaiting Transport' at the UK port.

It's thunder gray with black roof, sport package/cornering LED/17" two-tone roulette wheels, JCW interior pack/diamond carbon black, wired pack & wired upgrade Nav XL, rear spoiler, auto with paddles, damper control, Harman/Kardon, SiruisXL, rear camera/PDC, alarm, black jack mirrors & side scuttle, & other misc. So it's just about loaded except for sunroof!!!

This is my 3rd MINI after an '08 R56S & current 2012 R58JCW. Although it could be at the U.S. port (Brunswick, Ga?) in early Dec (assuming it's shipped this week), delivery to the dealer (all U.S dealers) could be delayed until Jan per earlier Motoringfile info. My dealer had no further info than that. So possible likely, many/all early orders of the F55 could be held at the U.S. ports through Dec. But sure would be nice to see mine by Dec 31!!!

Ordered on 10/2. It arrived in Port Hueme last Thursday and is at the VDC in Oxnard CA. Was hoping we might get it in time for Thanksgiving but it looks like it will be at the dealer (Northwest Mini in Fife, WA) next week sometime, so hopefully in time for my B-Day on 12/3 :)

Just a question - I ordered my F55 3 days ago and wondered about the status information you guys list - is this something you get from the dealer or can you access this info yourselves....?

Here in the USA you can go to the miniusa.com website into the 'owners' section & set up a username/password. You'd need to enter the VIN # also that you can get from your dealer salesperson once it's in the system. The info you get on the miniusa site may have a delay compeared to the actual status. Your dealer would have more up to date info throughout the timetable from build to arrival here at the POE. I've ordered. I've ordered my 3rd MINI & use a nickname for my car as the username...this time the 'grayghost' since its the Thunder Gray color.

The owner's lounge is very slow to update. You're better off getting info from your MINI dealership, or calling ASK-MINI.

Here are some links you might find useful:
