Today was the day I was finally able to collect my JCW - although teh wait was quite short having been a cancelled order.

I've covered about 100 miles in him since I picked him up, and it was a lot of fun - really enjoyed using the paddles which seemed to be quite responsive, and the car is popping, banging and gurgling right from the off!

Only issue is that the sat nav seems to be a bit off, like people I know who have recently taken deliveries in the last month or two, the destinations don't appear to be exactly where they are supposed to. Oh, and I didn't get a single net at all!

So, you enjoying it Phil ?
Indeed! - had 100 miles to cover before getting him home so got to play with all the different modes of the gearbox. Driving on the paddles was a lot easier than I expected and a lot more rewarding too.

I absolutely love the colour combination! Good choice! :D
Thanks Brandon, although the colour this time wasn't really a choice, it came by default with the car. Did you get yours yesterday too?

I just love driving on the paddles, probably why my MPG is so crap ! >:D

Glad you're enjoying it. I have to say, after 3 1/2 months & 3500 miles I'm still driving with the windows down so I can listen to it pop, bang & fart......

Didn't even think to look at this color combination but after seeing your pictures I think its just awesome. When the first generation of (BMW-produced) Mini's came out around 2000 I remember looking longingly at the grey with white wheel combination - this reminds of that only even nicer! Congrats! :)

Car has been having an extended holiday at a detailer for the last few days, and I was able to pick him up today, before getting him home and adding my first few personal touches.

That really is a lovely looking mini! Well done you. Incidentally re spotify; do you get the album art when bluetooth streaming ie not wired-i have android phone and use bluetooth all the time to play spotify but only get track name, no album art?
