Thought it would be good to start a new thread on order status.

I had contact from dealer today saying will have my order number and eta at end of month.

Thanks for starting the thread ghiblicup!

Confirmed my order at the start of December (with Touring Pack) and haven't had anything further. Was told delivery would be between Mar-Jun.

I confirmed my order in December with my dealership and also specified the Touring Pack.

I've spoken to them recently to ask if I could have a particular number of the limited edition - but have been told that you can't; they will be randomly assigned.

As far as I know we are on track for March onwards delivery. I was the first to order and place a deposit at my dealership, but I don't know if this will influence the order in which deliveries are made to customers.

Really looking forward to the car!

MINI confirmed my slot/order with the dealer on the launch day. Currently due in March but no further details.

Are people who have placed an order getting any correspondence from their dealer? Feel like mine is never in touch!

Confirmed my order in early December and had nothing. Not sure if is Mini or the dealers fault.

Glad it’s not just me! Let us know how you get on. My chasing email hasn’t done the job, looks like I’ll need to do the same.

Same story here. Order placed in December, was told only a few slots left. Apparently remaining slots were all filled up before Xmas. Mini salesman are more focussed on getting the next sale once they have your order!

Radio silence for me too. Think the whole Mini organisation is working on the electric Mini for now.

Let’s be honest, they’ve bled the PR machine dry on the GP3 anyway.

Anyone having second thoughts?

No second thoughts, glad to hear all the slots have been taken. Although I’ll be interested to see how many drop out. You?

The next 'interesting' MINI will be either an all-electric or hybrid JCW to follow up on the Cooper SE. Probably a couple of years off though.

I guess everybody has seen this video, however did you hear the “adjust camber and track width” at 7.40?

No second thoughts either..now done 3000 miles in the new clubman JCW 306, which is same power and at least 200kgs more and its really quick and fun...GP3 should be a lot quicker and a lot more fun

No second thoughts... really looking forward to hearing the reviews when the car is given to the press. Everything I’ve seen so far seems positive.

The looks are no doubt divisive, but I happen to think it looks fantastic.

I’m at the dealers now brought a car in for a service
No news on anything, seen a few on forums debating final price ,tax delivery plates etc, it is £36995 /£34995 and that’s official so anyone who is being told more then correct them, price includes everything
Got a print out of the info from salesmen as didn’t have anything to look at also deposit is still returnable to all and know one should be committed to sighing as yet.

Spoke with my dealer today, we should have had order confirmation this week, apparently will now be next week. He has a leaflet I can read but cannot take away/copy/email.

Also the GP at Stafford last weekend was a dressed JCW and not a GP that will be produced.

Don’t shoot me just what I have been told

When I asked my dealer how many GP 3 they had been allocated he said 8 that’s seems a lot to me, also a comment on Facebook that mini where considering upping the 575 units to 1000 as it’s sold out , all rumours and hearsay . I bought a Mustang Bullitt last year ,was on the waiting list for some time 300 limited where coming to uk lucky for me I sold it after a month on the 19 plate and made a good profit as car was all sold out and rare, month after selling ford announcement that they are going to keep on making them and the 2 nd hand values plummeted, and a lot of buyers are furious never rule out more units.

Just spoken to my dealer. No confirmation on delivery yet, he said Mini haven’t given him anything.
