I emailed the dealer stating I want resolution of the e call/ tele services feature with a close out date. Secondly I have asked them for written confirmation of the availability of the iPhone in car armrest cradle. The cradle uses the full car system aerial which the Bluetooth does not as when you are in Bluetooth mode external calls are to the phone and blue toothed to the car (that's how it was explained to me).
I have had my car 6 days, as far as I know/ can confirm SOS does not work, iPhone 5s does not work (no cradle). The dealer replaced the front brakes and discs as I found a groove in the front passenger side disc. The car was an ex demonstrator registered in March.
I do like my MCS but you know what it's like when you spend an awful lot of money. There were some other minor issues but I told the dealer that based on current performance, no I would not recommend Mini at this time - I think I am a becoming a beta tester
