Great choice of colour. I recently got shut of an R53 in Electric Blue, it' still got positive comments even after 12 years..
Enjoy.

Peterg, my wife drives an '02 EB MCS (actually, it's in a MINI specialist shop getting some tender loving care=$3,000! She basically wants the car in showroom shape, if possible). There's something about that color that draws people in! We lucked out with that car, for sure. I wish the VO was metallic. ;-) Great choice, Dodsley101!

Hi all.

Picked it up today (pictures to follow)

Car is amazing! Like literally amazing!

Second mini I have owned. Previous was a 61 reg convertible.

Just a quick question I can't get voice control to work on the steering wheel? Any ideas before I retreat back to the dealer! When I press the button nothing happens. When I press the phone it dials.

Sounds like an awesome spec - can't wait to see the pictures.

Did you spec the enhanced Bluetooth option.? I think the voice activation only works if you do, but someone else might be able confirm

Great news! I'm looking forward to seeing pics of your new F55. I saw the electric blue 5-door at the dealers here the other week: it's a cracking colour 'in the metal', much better than on the configurator.

I speced MINI-Connect and Visual Boost with enhanced Bluetooth on my '15 F56 and my Voice Activation does not work. I sent an email into MINI USA support because there is no clear statement anywhere telling a buyer what you have to purchase in order to get VA. My wife has VA on her '14 R55, but she has the Nav package too.

If they get back to me and clarify I'll post an update either here of wherever appropriate.
