Picked up Cooper S yesterday and found my handbook loose in the boot And no service book!
Rang dealer asking were the wallet was for the handbook and service book and was told the R56 does not come with a Handbook (despite there being one in the boot) or Service book.

So does anyone have a wallet in there R56 with a service book or Handbook.

I had Owner's giude and "MINI Dealer Warranty and Emergency Service Handbook" in the glove compartment. No wallet.

It's not a traditional service book with spaces for garage stamps... it's more like warranty details and the terms and conditions for MINI emergency service (breakdown cover).

Hi,
Received a paper handbook but without a nice leather effect wallet to put it in.
Straight to ebay and purchased a MINI wallet to keep my stuff in.

Next stop Apple app store where I downloaded the official MINI handbook app which is tailored to your car/model when you input your VIN.

Next stop, spent some time in the car reading and playing with the built in car handbook in the media.

Still don't know how everything works but enjoying discovering!

I have a rip-stop fabric wallet and handbook/manual with service record book and tire warrantee doc. with dvd for something (I haven't looked at it yet.) Plus most of the info is right there on the screen in the VO-S.

MINI don't supply a folder for documentation any more. A little sad that they cut back on something so small on a premium product. The service records are now stored in the car an on the central system which explains the lack of a service record book. fortunately I had two folders with my last MINI so can keep my handbook nice and tidy.

My car had an owner's manual in the glove box, then a couple weeks later a black nylon case for it was in my mail box.

As members have said the Mini no longer comes with this cover. Although after complaining to the dealer they gave two from old stock.
They have complained to mini that customers are disappointed not to receive a wallet with a so called premium product, they feel that after numerous complaints mini might change their minds but if they don't, they are considering ordering some with a dealership logo on the wallet to give instead.

Here's another picture. (Don't worry, I'm retired.) There's no way to add to a previous post. Why?

My new Cooper (September 2016) came with a well made wallet, ie not just cheap plastic, for the handbook.

The sales person said there had been complaints so Mini decided to reinstate the proper wallet thingy.

Silly penny pinching not to supply it as standard.
