Not a huge fan of the rear bottom part, but I love that front end!

Our F60 has been unloaded at the port of NY. Checked with dealer and they told me that the official launch date is March 4th so no chance of delivery until at least then. My best guess is around March 11 or so.

Should dock shortly and start to unload.

You're in Philly, too? :-)

Bet you'll have the first one in Philly.

Someone on one of the F60 threads posted that he received an email from MINI offering $1000 off a pre-order.

I paid less than MSRP as the dealer came strong to win back my business.

I got the $1,000 off from MINI for loyalty/preorder and then a little bit more off since I had bought my previous MINI hardtop from the same dealer. PM me if you happen to be in the Boston or Rhode Island area. I think the $1k off ends Feb 28 and applies to current MINI owners only.

Not certain when ends, but not current Mini owner and got the $1000 off. Attended the local 'unveiling' event and the representative going from dealer to dealer with the demo car announced it to the "available to those in attendance." I asked the salesman I had been working with if I heard correct, and he didn't believe it was discounted, then corrected himself the next day as he learned I had heard correct. Also inquired about USAA/Military discount and advised will be adjusted at delivery with whatever is in effect at that time as they only listed 2016's on their site at the time I ordered.

Countryman prices are seriously out of hand.

$41,450 MSRP for a fairly tricked out (JCW Exterior + Fully Loaded + Premium + Technology + Leather/Cloth Seats) ALL4 S manual and it's still not even a real JCW or plug-in hybrid!

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I was also offered the 1,000 at the dealer unavailing private event. I might be mistaken but here in So Cal I thought that was only if we made a pre-order which I think would have been by the 28th as TheJuice mentioned

Yes the prices are a "tad" high !

Is there any better tracking other than the Mini Lounge or bugging the dealership? I am stuck in an info void...and hopefully being loaded on a ship somewhere. Today, Mar 2, the Owner's Lounge continues with "In Production" with no updates despite the dealer's private access speadsheet showing production complete 2/23 (eight days ago) and further confirmed with the free VIN search that "Produced" 2/22. Checked the Wallenius site and VIN# in Cargo ID returned "no record." K-Line doesn't serve the Brunswick port so ruled them out. Guess today will swing by the dealer and see if they have updated info, but it is frustrating. I have an appointment on 3/29 with VW to turn in my diesel so trying to get an idea of how long will be without a car or if need to extend that appointment date - if possible. 3/29 was actually the soonest when I established it in February after I got the Mini production date.

Also, an FYI...
I have always known that the final eight digits of the VIN, the eighth digit = year, or in this case H=2017. The seventh digit had me purplexed as it represents the factory where built and Mini/BMW doesn't list that info. Looking at the window stickers on vehicles at the dealer determined that when seventh digit = 2, it is made at the Oxford plant. When it = 3, like mine, it is Born, Netherlands. At least that tells me will be shipped from Zeebruge, Belgium and not Southport, UK

Unfortunately, the dealer didn't have updated info either, still showing built on 2/23 but "in production".

Does the S and S ALL4 not come standard with the rear window spoiler? The configurator shows it as an option.

They usually lag behind a little. You should call 866-ASK-MINI, follow prompts, see what the automated system tells you, then ask to speak with representative for up to date details.

My wife ordered a Cooper S from Mini of Mt Laurel on Tuesday, just made the $1000 off offer. Thunder Gray. Haven't heard from the MA on build yet. It will fit nice in the garage with my 15 F56! Now just surfing the web looking for accessories.
