Since I test drove a 5 door cooper in November I've been obsessed! I can't place an order till end of May but I'm constantly on the configurator, watching you tube videos again and again and on this forum every night.
I've had a good few cars in my time but have never been this obsessed, worst of it is all my mates are calling it a girls car:eek:
How do I survive till May?

P.S. Can the door pockets take a manly bottle of water? ;)

Just wait until your car is built and just sits there endlessly not getting on a boat... but I digress...

From what I've seen, those door pockets won't fit a manly anything, but the cup holders are ubermanly

Ohhh yeah... way ahead of you. I just watched 3 German reviews and one in Japanese because I've watched all the test drives on Youtube in English. I'm going through my Owner's Manual page by page (be SURE to download the "Unauthorized Owners Manual" from the Owner's Lounge too - it's funny).

But... IT JUST GOT ON A BOAT! Literally, 30 seconds from sending the above, I did one last check on my little orange pocket rocket and the status shifted to "En Route", so now I'm all about nautical tracking ha.

Same situation. I've been saving to pay off the current car, which will be at the end of May. I can then place an order, hoping to get it on the 1st of September (new reg).
The spec has changed so many times. My £22K limit went up to 24, now sitting at £25k. There are 2 things i want but can't fit under £25k, without dropping something else.... Gggrrrrrr.

For the sake of a few ££ on the monthly payment id just get what you want, try haggling with the dealer as they will (in my experience) discount the options to get the deal, I paid less than half price for the sunroof :)

I'm wondering why you can't place an order earlier than May. Is there a production backlog on the 5 doors?

Sadly, I can't tell... the status update from Mini doesn't seem to mesh with any of the shipping schedules from WW or K-Line. I know there can be up to a 3 day delay for cargo information to populate on WW's tracking site, so I'm waiting to see if it eventually pops up there. I have my eye on one ship that I think is the best candidate, but for now I'm just guessing.

Pffft... Girl's car... what the heck does that even mean? Sounds like my kind of gal.

If running a 2L twin power turbo hot hatch with nearly 200hp and a popping exhaust makes my car a "girl's car", then call me Sally. But hey, all my boys that know cars are lining up to ride in my F56 and it has barely left port. And a lot of ladies too... {ggrrrrowlll}
