The owners lounge still says ‘On Order’, the phone line still says ‘Scheduled but no date’ so I’m thinking I got excited for no good reason. Upside, though, is that I get to go through that excitement again when it really does happen. Its only three days until production month, so I have fingers crossed to see something change soon.
When I ordered the MINI I put some accessories on there, figured they were small and inexpensive. But according to this posting over on dbmini, just installing the aux input might cost me $125!! So I think I’ll remove all the accessories and do them myself. Only thing I’m not sure of yet is an alarm system. I say they don’t stop anybody from stealing the car but my wife thinks they make a great deterrent to the ‘casual’ thief. $499 plus install might be worth it?
