Has anyone done this? Thought it would be cool to go visit and maybe see my mini getting made! Looks like a decent tour by the sounds of it!

Went a couple of times, its a great thing to do. The guides are very knowledgable and if you haven't seen a modern car plant before it will amaze you with the amount of automation

I've been on it once, and it was a great tour. You can't go into the paint shop (to avoid contamination) but you do get to see the robots building the bodies and get taken along the production line. You'll see the initial start of the line, the windscreens and engines going in and also the end of the line, where they're filling the car with fluids and driving it off the production line.

They give you a set of headphones with a mic, so you can hear the guide and ask questions.

I'm going again on the 11th of August and again in October.

May check it out!

Love the banter here guys!
You'll get used to GK7. You'll soon realise he's slightly deluded and thinks all Mini's should be Volcanic Orange!

As much as your black obsession Andy!!!

:nerd:>:D;)
My first choice was grey, my second choice was white silver.

How many times........I was overruled!

Volcanic Orange was a never a choice for me
