I've never had issues with the SA service folks. I'm here right now actually, though and they didn't seem to have my%2

I've had much worse service than SA... and much better. They tried to pull the bad gas when my HPFP blew as well as a variety of other ticky tack issues, but on the other hand, they eventually followed through and resolved all issues I've faced. But I'd love to be able to not commit half a day just to do annual service.

March 1st? Just went by yesterday and it doesn't look that close.

Hate to be a cynic, but each year we've been told "6 months away". Should we place bets and see who guesses the actual opening date?

To the future Mini of Austin - please open up soon! I refuse to go to Mini of SA! (while some people don't have anything bad to say about them, there is certainly nothing good to say about them)

Are you sure? A guy from work lives near by and told me based on what he saw it indeed looks like beginning of March. I really don't wanna go to Dallas again, so I hope they open soon, since I still need more warranty stuff to be done on the car

Drove by Monday and lights were on inside. They are still working on outside facade, but if weather cooperates, I believe they might make their March opening date. at least I hope so...

Yay! So hopefully by the time I finally find a job in Austin (a girl's got to dream) the dealership will be open. Either way, it'll be nice to have one there when I hopefully return for grad school. I really miss Austin!

Oh, and just as an aside...there will be some HUGE special incentives for the first 100 MINI buyers. But you didn't hear it from me! ;-) You might want to follow my tweets or Facebook page for the latest details - Both can be found under "MINI of Austin". And yes, those who reserve and order cars now will qualify for the soon-to-be-announced programs!

That store looks terrific! (and EXTREMELY familiar to where I worked for a few years )

I sure do appreciate a good weather day! We are getting close! I am looking forward to starting the "move that bus, move that bus" chant!

I'm confidant this MINI dealership will be one of the best in the nation. I've been to other dealers and all seem to be just a slapped together afterthought "oh, I guess we should sell some MINIs... let's put it in this decrepit back corner." MINI of Austin already looks like 2 notches above the rest and they haven't even opened yet. BMW of Austin was the best. I'd expect no less from MINI of Austin.

I tend to agree with everything you said.

Bummer! Oh well, I may still try to do a drive-by this week. I'm crossing my fingers that this will be the job! I really want to move back to Austin.
