Help required: Contrast roof and the ongoing delay!

So, yesterday I get a call from the manager of my dealer to inform me that he's been in touch with MINI UK about the delays with my car and that without doubt the problem is the contrast roof. I find this really hard to believe due to the number of F56's I have seen on this and other forums with a contrast roof.

In order to have some ammunition to fight my case I would like the help of those who have taken delivery of their F56 with a contrast roof. For those who are happy to help can you let me know the date you ordered your car and the date you received it, also the model and the body/roof colour combo.

Thanks in advance,

I Ordered my MC in VO with Black roof in the 7th April and am picking it up on Sunday (13th July). Original delivery date was quoted as mid-late June so I think I only got pushed back 2 weeks in reality.

I was only ever told that there were delays, but this was attributed to the factory closing at one point and/or a new paint shop being added.

I was never told that there were specific option or roof issues.

I was also told at one point that of the two production lines (A and B), it very much depended in which your car was allocated to. With one line processing much faster. I don't know enough about how the manufacturing process at the factory works to know if that's true.
I got the impression MINI UK were sending everyone affected by the delays a £300 accessories/parts voucher? I had mine in the post yesterday. From what my dealer said, the regional manager made word that they were being proactively sent out. I might have misunderstood though.

I was also able to get another £300 off from the dealer themselves for the issues.

Definitely worth pushing
