picked up Friday & it's awesome! Apologies for the delay in showing pics, i oculdnt work out how to get to the URL links on my ipad over the weekend







This is the off white interior door, showing the additional light tube running under the white piece


oddly the white dash pieces have this dogtooth, slightly textured design whereas all the other surfaces are plain smooth. i'm pleased with it though, given that i went for it based off only a swatch. really lifts the interior & matches with the roof & door caps


the Works wheel is lovely & tactile, a real bonus when you spec the auto

That looks fantastic! I can't wait to join in the fun :)

I like the first shot the way it has a little glint on the door handle... ting!

Looks beautiful in sunshine - I mean I'm not arguing at all that the VO would have been better in sunlight...

:eek:

But I like it.

;)

Stunning looking car; really nice; like the off white with the green; I've had VO! and so thought I had better stay fairly sober interior wise! Just rung the dealer still ok for first week September delivery. Trying very hard not to get too excited! Apparently at this time last year mini had made 3000 cars, this year 9000 and capacity is 10000 so they are working flat out! Hope they aren't rushing! Quality not quantity etc!

Yeah i was worried the plate was a bit sweary but its not too obvious, and i like the idea of it being a UK S.

I originally thought of the red colour line for the interior but allowed myself to be talked out of it.

Only problem on pickup is that the sunroof doesnt work. The electronic module is dead apparently so waiting on a date to take it back in to be swapped out. Takes 2 days unbelievably, 2 hours to replace the module and the rest to re-programme the car!

That is a poor show that the sun roof doesn't work.
Collecting mine this week, if anything similar is not functioning they can keep it until it is fixed.
It is really shoddy that it would have left the factory with such a basic part not working.

To be fair they did offer a hire car until it was sorted but the car is perfectly driveable and i didnt want to wait

The pdi was done at dealership, it never went to thorne so it was either missed at the plant or worked there and failed when it was tried at pdi. Like the dealer said, the protective wrap is applied at the plant so theres no way to check it physically works until the dealer unwraps it
