I agree. Makes no sense why you guys cannot track you Mini in production and or shipping. If it was up to me I would put web cams in the factory for virtual tours and to check in on the birth of your very own Mini..Not at all fair that the Americans get all the fun of tracking ships. I reckons us Brits should get the option to track from Oxford to dealer!!!
Zoom in on that pic you posted .. If you are getting a VO it's 2/3 back in the lineI went to dealer ( Passport Mini in Alexandria, VA ) on May 20th with what I wanted and they found the exact match that was produced May 14th, So they tagged that one for me..
