Thank you Steve. I have also contacted MINI Customer Services and they told me that the online configurator for the UK site will be updated on 01 September. I have ordered mine with the Sport package back in May but no firm date yet as to when this option will be available for production.
My local dealer is fantastic but the delay has been far too long now so I was wondering if anyone else has any more 'inside' info on this package. Thanks again!
I had the new brochure from Mini and whilst I couldn't use the configurator online - the dealer could spec it with the JCW kit (sports inside and out) when they set the system forward for a November build.
Been told I should be getting mine on 01 November - but expect some slippage on this date.
* just to add the sports kits are going to be ready for November deliveries (according to both Mini ParkLane and Salisbury)
Many thanks Neil. Good to hear this. I did exactly the same (ordered the car from the original brochure that was released in May14) but still feel quite annoyed with Mini that six months later their online configurator has not been updated to include this option.
I should be getting my car in Sept (so I was told). Let's see! Thanks again
