Didnt hear about it but we're likely to hear more about this soon, maybe even in a news release.I just heard from my dealer that there is a general delay with all F56, mainly cars with deviating roof/mirrors in black or white and with option 7KN among others... Mine was supposed to be built on wk13, went to wk16, up to wk25 and now back to wk16... Anyone else got info on this?
So my dealer gave me the right info, but he said that white roof/mirror cap cars will be delayed as well, and some extras such as 7KN(no idea which one this is)...I've just had a call from my dealership I've ordered through.
He's confirmed there is a delay with the Cooper Ds because the production plant have recalled ALL their Ds they've made, to fix whatever fault it is they're not happy with. This has had a knock on effect on all the petrols too. He's also said that any order with roof & mirror caps in black with a different body colour also have a delay - he couldn't tell me why this was apparent - I'm assuming it's a stock issue on the roof & mirror caps.
My original delivery/collection was going to be mid-end of April, they're now telling me end of May - beginning of June!
My dealer said something about the fault on the D's flagging a potential fault or something with the petrol - I'm not entirely sure.Thanks for the updates guys. So did you get the impression that they've all been sent back to the factory? I wonder if mine is still at the dealership or if they've had to return it?
Odd that it's impacting petrols too - although perhaps that's just a knock on effect of them diverting resource to fixing the Cooper D's, thereby slowing down production of petrols?
And also odd about the black roof/mirrors causing delays - have they run out of black paint haha??!
