I found out today that my new Mini (Status 1200 earlier this week) & due to be built next week, has inexplicably slipped back to status 1100.

I'm really not happy about this.

I did some searching online and found a pre registered Mini, with similar spec (different colour, no VDC, but with additional Panoramic Sunroof & Comfort Access), so I sent the ad to my dealer and threatened to pull out of the deal and buy that one.

Cue a major panic by my sales rep and a call to her Manager, who has now emailed Munich to demand an explanation and try to get the build date returned to next week.

I'm expecting a (satisfactory) reply tomorrow!

Not happy!

Will keep my fingers crossed!! Didn't think it was possible to slip back a status :(

Good on you for getting into the dealership like that though. Sometimes a threat is the only way to get a result. Hope it gets them in gear!

Hoping you get a good result tomorrow Andy. You know how I feel about it. If I was closer I'd be marching on Park Lane and kicking butt for you!!

Just looked again at the Mini I saw today and it does have VDC! Higher spec than mine.......so so tempted!

Sorry to hear that Andy - I can't really say anything else I know exactly how you are feeling - but if that were to happen to me again I don't think I could take it...

Goody luck

Kind of debating a colour change now......white silver is really nice. Volcanic Orange has really grown on me and thunder grey was my original first choice......
