Hi to you all,
Just wanted to let you know that my new Mini went to build on Friday and should be with me late March. She will be my 4th Mini, one Cooper the rest Cooper S models.
It has been ordered in Blazing Red, white roof and miror covers with white sport strips on the bonnet and tailgate.
I have gone a bit mad with the options, but they make it sooo appealing, here is the list that I have speced.
Chilli Pack
Comos Wheels
Black lounge leather
Mini off white trim, with glowing red colour line
Nav XL pack
JCW steering Wheel, as I love the red stiching!
Electric folding mirrors
Heated ftront screen
Darkened rear glass
Dimming rear view mirror
Smokers package (not a smoker, but love the closing ashtray to put parking money in)
Rear park assist
LED front lamps, this was added at the last minute, so hope that this was in time, still waiting to hear!
I will post a picture when she arrives, looking forward to it, but will be sad to see my old one go, as this has been the best one that I have owned to date.
Oh well, things have to change.
Love reading posts from other Mini owners, on what they have chosen for their pride and joy.

Congratulations! I think you have chosen the very best colour! I understand what you mean about it being easy to get carried away with the options. It's like being a kid in a candy store again. Welcome to the forum. It's always good to have another member of the Blazing Red club (which we still haven't named yet!).

Seems a long time from going to build to being delivered, mine was about 3 weeks. I also went mad on options on my MC, came out about £24 k bottom line before discount. I have changed the gear lever for a JCW one to match the steering wheel, only a 5 minute diy job

Hi Helicopter Pat,
The delay in collecting the car is my choice, not when it will be ready, if you see what I mean?
And yes, a lot of money for options that are standard on many other cars, but hay that the fun of Minis...all mine have cost too much as far as my husband is concerned!
My husband hates the black pedals, so will change these for the JCW ones within a month I suspect!
I had not thought about the gear knob, how much did yours cost to buy?

Brilliant, they are lovely,you'd have been happy with the car any way but they are the icing on the cake. Park up somewhere dark and walk up to open th e car. Lights up like a Christmas tree. I never get fed up of seeing it.gorgeous.

Hi Blazing Deb
I got my gear lever off EBay for £68 delivered, RRP is £72, The seller has still got them on there, I placed an offer and got it for £64 +P&P. If I was you I would ask your dealer for a good price on it and fit it for free, only a 5 minute job. I am thinking of the pedals as my next mod. The mud flaps are also worth fitting, again a DIY job, took me less than an hour.

She's arrived

It's here!
My new Mini has arrived at the dealership, she will be getting her strips next Thursday, and then I will be collecting her the following Friday.
Very happy, but also sad to say goodbye to my existing Mini.
My MCS has been the best if the bunch to date, so really hope that this one will be even better, if that's possible!
I will post some pictures once she's mine, till then...
