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,

Ordered a red/black Cooper 11 April, it arrived at the dealer today and I collect it tomorrow. I think it is 13 weeks to the day.

My car was initially quoted as deliver mid to late June.

Dealer never told me about a contrast roof delay, he did say that the factory was shut for two weeks for re-tooling or something.

If your car is not due till mid-August I would tell them to register it as a 64 plate and get in September.

You might also ask if they can swap a showroom car built for them to your car in order to get it sooner.
Unbelievable how some people are waiting a short time (solar red), yet other like hove biker seem to be waiting forever.

Are MINI not meant to be offering some compensation for long delays? I would be asking my dealer for something to soften the pain of the long wait.
