Hi folks,

Long term Mini driver here, had a few classic minis in the 1960/70s and a couple of modern ones: 1st Gen Cooper and a 2nd gen 'S'. I part exchanged my 'S' 12 months ago (for a Peugeot) and immediately regretted it. I just ordered a Cooper from Barons in Farnborough hopefully to be delivered by March :)

It's going to be:
Electric Blue
Pepper Pack
Heated front screen
Folding Mirrors
Rear park control

Looking forward to getting it and learning from the experiences of all you good folk on here.

That's a great build :) I also love the electric blue, so much so I was willing to wait on a car to get the features I wanted in that color. I wish I had been able to get the folding mirrors, but that's OK.

Indeed, the "Heated Powerfold Mirrors & Washer Jets" option is available for the 5 door, @MiniManiac. When I talked to the saleperson about the build I wanted, she said there was a car already on its way to the US that had most of the options I wanted in electric blue. That car, which I bought, had not had the powerfold mirrors installed.

I could have done a custom build and included them, but I would have had to wait 4 or so months for delivery. Admittedly, I was impatient ;)

Blimey, a four month wait! I can see why you went for the one on it's way.

Welcome MINIManiac, interesting to see you ordered your MINI on the same date I did and your ETA is March, but my dealer gave me an ETA of the end of February - and mine has to be shipped across the Irish Sea!

February may only have 28 days, but with me turning a year older on the 8th and waiting on my car, ironically it will be the longest month of the year!

Health to enjoy your car!

Hi @Pedro thanks for the welcome! I had a call from the dealer last week with an update, mine should be delivered on 23rd Feb. So that fits in with your ETA. Over here dealers expect people to delay picking up their new car until March since the registration number plate age identifier changes then, but that doesn't worry me, I'd rather get my hands on it a week early :)

Happy birthday in advance!
