I have been following this forum for a little while as I have waited (not very patiently!) for my blazing red Mini Cooper S to arrive. I finally had to join and post as I have followed posters in the UK receiving their cars this week. Your excitement has been so contagious! I have felt like it was Christmas over here. We ordered my car in June. The last nebulous, not overly confident report from my dealer said maybe I would have it by the middle of September. Thank you for helping to make my wait much more enjoyable!
