Despatch to Dealer

Hi All,

Just got a call from the dealer saying that my Mini is being despatched today to them.
I believe the it has gone form Oxford to Southampton already? then I guess on to Gatwick (Vines)

Can anyone confirm this correct? How long this takes? is it normal?

Hi Michael,

The export cars go onto the train from the factory.

Time from factory to dealer for UK cars is quoted at 10 days.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for the information, I'm waiting for mine which I bought in Luxembourg, and the status follows the BMW codes below.

Looks like I will have to sit and just wait for the call then! Currently 9 days late....
Does the car still have the same status?
they don't all go through the distribution centres. I had a call from my dealer on the monday to say the car was built & it was with them the next day
How lucky :)

I'm getting impatient... I called the dealer (they never call to give you any feedback or anything) for the status code of my MINI and I was the one who basically told them when the car was built, they didn't even know... I even sent the BMW VIN decoder link :eek: I don't want to sound too old schoolish, but is customer service on vacation? I just don't understand how you can't follow-up yourself on a client?

It's frustrating :|
