I've added a bit more to my order!

Tinted rear glass
JCW tuning & exhaust kit

Next week I'm going to have a drive in a car with the tuning kit whilst I wait the remaining time until mid-june for mine to come! Aaaagh.

Massive congrats dude. Thats one sweet looking order.

Could i ask you how on earth you managed to get a build slot for that quick? That makes it around 3 weeks from order to build. Most mini dealers i've approached are quoting 8-10 weeks for delivery.

I'm in the UK so the lengthy shipping abroad is not part of the delivery process.

Uum, I'm not sure why!

I got my current dealer warmed up about it almost 6 weeks ago. The old one a month before that.

They said as long as I book a build slot (£250 blocked on card) which finalises June 1 then it can be delivered in the week of 15 June.

I booked the build slot with the better dealer almost 2 weeks ago (and cancelled the one with the rude expensive one).

I negotiated with two dealers and their delivery times was the case with both of them (Sytner and Inchcape) in South East UK.

So this week the car is supposed to arrive at the dealer, i've now been told they won't have the exhaust kit until about July... ****.

I had a feeling they hadn't ordered it... And now suddenly they realise it's going to take ages to get. Sigh.

At least I'll get to try the car with the stock exhaust/power... They said when I come in for the install they'll fill up my tank.

Make sure there are just fumes in there :)

Thanks, yes the F55 seems to be very excellent so far. I'm pleased ^_^

I've decided he's a He, named Gus. He is growing up fast, and playing with the other kids very well.
