I know this is probably a minor point considering the delays some customes are suffering ; anyway : I recently took delivery of my Cooper and all I got was a handbook and nothing else ( no service record , no warranty booklet , no protective wallet / case etc). My dealer says that this is all that they supply now, is this the same everyone else is being told?

Yes, this is the story that seems to be emerging. I have less of an issue with this if this is becoming an industry wide practice, but when selling the car you'll need to include all the printouts of services.....

We got a warranty book as well as the hand book. If it is the same as BMW the service history is displayed on the centre screen.

You can download Owners manual into your Android device - smart phone or tablet - it works perfecty and if you know your VIN it will custom load only your specs - otherwise it uploads full demo version - just follow instructions posted on another thread on this topic ... good luck!

Note - the app has 1.7Mb and this forum does not allow this .app extension upload (I tried it) - I shared it with forum administrator but he did not figured yet how to do it....

Does anybody know if the manual will fit in the pouch that came with the R56? If so I might buy one to protect the manual.

Strange. I got all of that:
- owner's manual
- service & warranty information
- retailer directory
- folded booklets related to recommended tires and run-flat tires
- in a nice pouch ...

Mine was delivered like this:
  • A manual. In content terms, it is very similar to the Android app, and was immediately filed in the cupboard at home.
  • A "certificate" saying I have the service plan. I presume this is all held electronically at the dealer.
  • A warranty information booklet.
  • No pouch was provided.
  • No service record book was provided. Advice was to "just keep your receipts".
  • Copious junk about gap insurance, alloy wheel and tyre insurance, paint protection stuff.

I wish I'd held on to the nice pouch I had with the older R56.
