If yours is already in "production begins," that's the fastest I've heard of. What spec did you order? Could be that you slipped in at the perfect moment. I'm down in Virginia Beach so I ordered at our local dealer. Mine went in just as Mini was changing over from '22 to '23, so that played a small part, but I've considered my schedule quite fast versus a lot of the people on here, so that's awesome if yours rolled right into production.Thanks for creating this post. It's been helpful in gauging production timeline for mine. I noticed you're in VA --care to share what dealership handled your order? I ordered mine on Tuesday, 5/31 from Mini of Alexandria. My order seems to be moving unusually quicker than yours though, because it went immediately to the "scheduled for production" once I placed my deposit. My VIN was assigned, and the status updated to "Production Begins" yesterday.
