wow. this has been the longest wait ever. from england, to new york, to panama, and tomarrow, 1-28, it will be in California. Aero kit to be put on in Cali, and on the truck to Denver. Slowly collecting toys for the car. So far I have two PIAA plasma ion yellow fog 520's and two PIAA all terrain pattern driving 520's. soon to have the quad light kit from VIP. Still undecided on the exhaust. There are a couple videos of the new JCW full exhaust, but they claim it won't fit the all4, which i find hard to believe considering the s and the all4 have the same part number for the stock exhaust I've heard. As far as wheels go, check tire rack. they have a ton of options for a countryman. I'll post pics just as soon as the car makes it to Denver.
The car is done!! Whooo Hoooo!! Now we're in the awaiting transport stage. Once the car is on a boat, how can I track it? I thought I read somewhere that it will give you the name of the boat the car is on and you can track it somehow? This entire process really is pretty spiffy. Its neat to order one just the way you want it, know the progress of the build and go to the dealer to get it. The problem is.... its not here yet. Hurry up and wait again. Sheesh.
Ordered a pair of PIAA 520 crystal ion fog lights and PIAA All terrain pattern driving lights. soon to order the VIP quad light mount. Lights should be here next week. I'll keep you posted.....
Here is a good site that will guide you in tracking your MINI (or other BMW products coming through Germany). My CMS4 is either waiting at Bremerhaven on the docks or is already on a ship; not sure because there is a lag before data is updated.
I got the call today. The car has finally arrived. Plans to pick up the car on the 18th of this month. Financing was just fine. 2.9% through Mini. The latest promo for my dealer is that if you spend 1500 in accessories, you get 500 off. Doesnt sound too bad. I'm thinking all weather floor mats in the front, back, and boot, window tint, rear bumper protection film, and carbon fiber mirror caps. Any other suggestions on how to blow 1500 in accessories? Pics to come next weekend.
I'm waiting patiently for my new baby to arrive. It has been a painful 5 weeks since the order date. It looks like its ready to ship for about 3 weeks now and I'm getting antsy. About 20x times a day I track it via the mini owners lounge and still nothing. My boyfriend will never see me again as soon as this baby arrives!! lol

congratulations on your car!! my wife got her countryman three days ago, I dont think she has turned it off yet!! You'll love the black housings on the headlights and the piano black interior. We really like ours. It looks clean and even classy. The technology package was questionable when ordering simply because of the price, but it really is worth the money. The navigation is accurate and easy to use, the mini connect and the apps available for it are fun too. Be patient 127DM, its worth the wait. Its a fantastic little car. Congrats again!
