Had a cheeky test drive and instantly wanted one, car won't be here till December, but will be worth wait. Have picked an up! Black with usual toys, sensor pack, spare wheel and mats. Can't wait to get it now
Thanks for replies I did indeed tick the sound pack, thought it was worth having. Although December is a bit a way, it's giving me time to get rid of my cooper cabrio. I was a bit worried that it wouldn't be as much fun as my mini, but I was hooked after the first 5 minutes. Look forward to particpating with the forum, if anyone needs any tips on keeping their up gleaming clean give me a shout
The wait does still seem to vary significantly and for a variety reasons, not least of which appears to be the quota the dealer has - mine told me they can only place 5 up! orders per month and will only receive a maximum of 50 up!s this year.
Hopefully, if they do increase production for the UK the quotas will be reviewed upwards as well.
However, having ordered a 5 door less than a month ago, expecting a minimum 12 week wait, it is due to be built this week and should arrive at the dealer mid-August, even though I'm not in a position to take delivery until October!!! Now that will be frustrating!
