Scheduled For Production, Really

The new MINI is now scheduled for production on the owner’s lounge, I have a VIN and a date of July 12th! Unfortuantely I have found out that I was not able to get the change to cloth seats made in time so it is coming with the leatherette. I have been offered a rebuild for a late August production date but I guess I will stick with this. I had always planned on putting some Wet Okole seat covers at some point so perhaps that will be my first ‘mod’. Mind you I am so angry at South Bay MINI for their general inability to get in touch (I am still yet to receive a receipt) I am tempted to cancel the whole damn thing. But my sales contact is back from vacation and she is pretty good, its just the person she put in charge who is either incompetent or just hates people with Kentucky accents 🙂

  1. I don’t understand why you could not change the seats – even now! When I ordered GBMINI#3 I got a “nearly-in-production” car and changed everything to my specs; it was built 15 days later.
    Be sure you won’t ever regret the “wrong” seats – I’d hate for a MINI owner to have that nagging in the back of their mind every time they drive …

  2. According to the MINI2 ordering FAQ, and my sales person, once the MINI hits “Scheduled for Production” on their internal order system you cannot make any changes. Mine went into that state on June 20, three days before I asked to make the change. But I’m not worried about regretting the seats, I had always planned to put the Wet Okoles on, it will just happen day one rather than day 365.
