  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    Well, we finally pulled the trigger. I ordered the wife an all white Countryman S All4. Some of the options include the JCW aero kit, cold, premium, and technology packages, black headlight housings, and black wheels. The dealership I used was Ralph Schomp Mini of Denver. I cannot say enough about this dealership. Nobody was pushy, I was treated with respect, and they answered every question I had easily. Thanks to this forum for the reviews, sponsor links, and information, I really look forward to many great motoring miles and future mods. I'll post pics the second we get it. :thumbsup:

    Congrats on your new Countryman!

    Cant wait to see it - I have the aero kit and it really makes the car look good :)

    Go ahead and check out MINI Countryman Motoring - Great information there about the Countryman.

    Very nice, perhaps we will see you out at some of our MINI5280 group fun. Think Icicle Rally in February, perhaps.

    It would be a good break in drive. :)

    Congratulations,
    Don

    Don. Thanks for the invite. I can only hope the car is delivered by the time the icicle run takes place. Chad at Schomp told me to check out the mini5280 club. It looks like something I would be interested in for sure! Membership AND the icicle run! So it looks like you've had your all4 for about a year now. How do you like it? How does it do in the snow?

    Yes, almost a year and 11111 miles pulling into the garage after dinner tonight. :wink:

    CM goes well in the snow, I had the opportunity to drive in some deeper snow the other day, no issues. It has a nice stability with the ALL4.

    Since the CM is wife's DD, she has a great passion for the CM, she let's me drive to dinner, car wash and to fill it up with gas.

    I find it comfortable, but I have noticed a bit more road noise this winter. But it could be just me looking. :frown2:

    So far, not much to complain about, had some issues this summer but all is good.

    2nd oil change coming up around Jan. 10 I think, computer is saying 4K left to needed change. :thumbsup:

    Update:
    The car is done!! Whooo Hoooo!! :biggrin5: 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.
    Next Update:
    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.....

    www.marinetraffic.com is what I used... It was very fun, also if you have a W&W ship you can see what dates it will arrive in the ports on its journey over... I'm sure it's the same if it's a K-Line

    Happy Tracking!!

    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.

    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. :biggrin5: 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. :thumbsup:

    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!
