Wow, I'm glad I got my order in for my '15 F56 S when I did. Mine shows complete and waiting at port so fingers crossed it has everything I ordered.

I just looked at the configurator and am seeing lots of things changed or missing. Biggest thing is there is no loaded package, just fully loaded.
The Satellite Grey/Truffle seats are gone, as is the fireworks dash, dark silver dash and shadow grey color line.
The auto dimming rearview is now included with Cold Weather pkg and I don't see that you can add it separately anymore.
There is no option for Nav on the regular Media package, you have to choose Nav XL or nothing.

I'm sure there are more but I only checked on the stuff I looked into from my build.

I wondered how long it would take after the announcement for them to put in the changes. Not long, as it turns out.

My guess is they are changing to make sure they have what they need to build those already scheduled for production.
I'm sure they will add new stuff to the configurator that I may have liked as much as what I chose, but I plan to enjoy mine the way I built it.

I think the Firework dash will be a nice change for me after 2 MINIs with the plainer dash.

I went on the configurator over the weekend and I didn't notice anything different, from when I put my build together.

I'd be interested in hearing any specific changes that anyone notices.

We got word from our dealer on June 4th that our MINI had arrived, Here is a pic our dealer sent us:



We are also glad to have ordered our MINI when we did. I didn't want the Nav XL either. We selected the loaded package instead of the fully loaded. Couldn't see spending the money. We plan to use an iPhone 6 with a dash mounted holder for navigation. That way we can use Yelp with all our bookmarks. We will use a converted iPhone 4 to iPod in the armrest with a snap-in adapter. It will be used strictly for music. Our salesman said he could have everything installed by the time we arrived to pick up our MINI.

If anyone is interested in a dash mounted iPhone in their MINI our salesman suggested these links. I apologize for not being able to figure out how to insert a hyperlink for the following websites, You'll just have to copy and paste. So sorry!:

I'd like the passenger to be able to see the mounted iPhone screen from their seat. Therefore, we will want to have tilt & swivel capabilities. It would also be good to have a black instead of a white cable that could stay attached to the holder and the USB port when the phone is removed. We also wish to be able to keep a case on the phone. Therefore, the holder we wish to use is the following:

The U.S. Configurator still lists a couple of things that were supposed to be discontinued (on the F56 non-S, at least), like the Rear Fog Light. But the car seems to have gotten a bit more expensive than it was last week, even when configuring the exact same car.

When I rebuilt my car it actually came out cheaper, but that is because I couldn't add the dash,color line and something else. I'm good with mine, as it was loaded on a boat this past Friday, guess I better be :D.
