Re: Delivery time

Hi Andrew and OB1CCFC Thanks for your kind wishes, I really needed to get things resolved and move on with the rest of my life, and I have been wavering towards the MINI Electric for some time. They are also now on extremely long lead times for a factory order, and there are virtually none available...

Re: Delivery time

Well, with my car being further away now than it was when I ordered it seven months ago, I have decided to call it a day and have placed a deposit on a brand new MINI Electric which is in stock as a cancelled order, and is exactly the specification I would have chosen had I configured one! I should ...

Re: Delivery time

It’s certainly a very confusing reply! My dealer, arranged through Drive The Deal, remains adamant that the deal we agreed will still apply - and they appear to be pro-active and have a protocol in place to ensure this happens. Being ever sceptical, I specifically sent a very detailed email listing ...

Re: Brake Lights are distracting

The same with many EVs, this phenomenon is particularly noticeable on the MINI Electric.

Re: Delivery time

Hi Jamie1c I’m glad someone else thinks that it’s shocking! Yes, the situation appears to have come about because his car was one of the cars scheduled for week 49 last year, and I understand that quite a few of those have come through. Mine was scheduled for a week or two later apparently, although...

Re: Delivery time

Yep, very much pot luck. A friend ordered an identical car to mine, same spec, same colour, same wheels, from the same dealership six days before me in early October last year. His car was delivered about a month ago in early April, mine has a provisional build week 42 in October this year and I wil...

Re: Delivery time

Hi ag-indie, I think it’s nearly impossible to say! I have a Life Pro Performance ordered a couple of weeks before you (order 31491***) and my dealer has indicated a very provisional build week 42, which is mid October. But, and there’s always a but, on past experience a lot of cars have been up to ...

Re: Delivery time

My nephew lives in Shanghai and they have been in a very, very strictly enforced lockdown for some time now, with the situation now going into its second month. He was due to fly home at the end of March, but is unable to leave his apartment - so the lockdown has already had a very severe impact on ...

Re: Delivery time

Yep, I bought my MINI Cooper at the end of my PCP contract in April 2019 for £7,400, three years later Motorway are offering £8,500 for it - three years of motoring and I’m £1,100 better off!

Re: Delivery time

Hi the.kes. Yes it is really the inconsistency that is so incredibly annoying. I friend of mine ordered an identical car to me, exactly the same spec, wheels and even the same colour from the same dealer just 10 days before me. His was delivered a couple of weeks ago, while mine has a provisional bu...

Re: Delivery time

I ordered my Life Pro-Performance with East Derry wheels in early October last year and still don’t have a confirmed build slot, but my dealer’s latest update has moved the provisional build week back to week 42. Delivery would now almost certainly be sometime next year. As I don’t need a car as lar...

Having seen a Turquoise id3 for the first time last week, I would say keep the Tour - it looked stunning!

Re: Delivery time

Thanks for the info Thornytree, and welcome to the the forum. It looks like you’ve done really well to gain such a commitment from your dealer, and I will get back to mine to see if I can get a similar conclusion. I did get what I thought was a reasonably comprehensive answer from them a few weeks a...

Re: Delivery time

Yes the weather-related incident referred to in the reply Skippy received from VW is probably the closure of two major semiconductor factories in Texas, closed by snowstorms last year. This relatively short-lived stoppage did have a disproportionately large impact on the global supply chain, and cer...

Re: Delivery time

Does anybody know the exact official Department of Transport position concerning the continuing eligibility of the plug-in car grant for vehicles facing long delivery delays. My dealer seems to think it will be fine. The government website (and their official pdf document) appears to suggest the gra...

Re: Delivery time

Yes, mine’s a Life Pro Performance with alloys and a paint option, but was ordered in early October and qualified for the £2,500 government EV grant that was in place at that time. I’m waiting to for an update from the dealer, but it is currently provisionally scheduled for the build to commence in ...
