How strange? I was only at the Oxford plant a couple of months ago and they said all Minis (F56 and F55) were built in the UK? Only the Countryman and Paceman are in Austria. Bit let down now with the information they gave us. lol

I'm Dutch, live in Belgium 30 kilometers from the MINI plant but for some reason I'm also glad mine was built in the UK. Just like German beer should be brewed in Germany a MINI should be born in the UK :)

I was informed that all F55 and F56 'S' models come from the Oxford plant anyway.

Quick easy way to tell, using the 7th digit of your VIN:

Txxxxxx: Oxford (Cooper/ Cooper S/ JCW)
2xxxxxx: Oxford (Cooper/ Cooper S/ JCW)
3xxxxxx: Born, NL (Cooper and MY2016+ Cooper S)
Wxxxxxx: Graz, Austria (Countryman/Paceman)

Um... my seventh digit is 'C'. And as far as I know my MCS was built in Oxford.

Not the 7th digit of the VIN, but the first of the last 7 digits of your VIN is how you can determine where your MINI was manufactured.

It will look like this:
2BXXXXX
3AXXXXX
TXXXXXX
2AXXXXX
etc
