Yesterday I phone MINI customer services who gave me my vin number and the good news is that it's being built in Oxford and production started on my car yesterday the guy informed me that it had just gone through the paint process,so I have a few questions.........

1..How long does it take to build the car from start to finnish.

2..How long generally does it sit around for once it's built before it's delivered to the dealers.

3..checking the spec sheet from http://www.bmwarchive.org I cannot find the heated windscreen option yet it's on my copy of the order form.

Did you get a screenshot of the dealer software to confirm the options had been submitted correctly to the factory? Your missing option should be on the list.

My MINI was built on the 5th November and the dealer said it will be ready for collection from 17th November. We are having couple of things fitted at the dealers so this pushed the date back a few days. Will be arranging to pick it up on Friday 21st Nov.

Dealer advised this morning the car just arrived at their Newbury compound, which is just up the road from hook where the dealer is.

Sadly not, all I have is a an order form that I signed with the options and cost of the car.

My VIN gives a production date of 06.11.2014. Anybody know if that is the start of production or the completion?

Great news about your car @dinger
It takes about 1 week to arrive to the dealer after the build. Then I was told the dealership will need 4 working days to prepare the car for you to collect :) Hope you manage to sort out the heated windscreen, it should definitely be on your VIN spec sheet!

Offically determined as when the powertrain and chassis subassemblies are joined.

Got a tenner off roof bars for mine , not much else. Mind you I am very happy with the car! Had to buy my wife a bag in the shop at the factory. They stock everything!!! Could have spent a fortune!
