The car prep was only started on the Tuesday so they had only discovered this issue then. The interior hadn't been done properly and either had the rest of the externals. I took the car as I was meant to have my dashcams fitted that night. However, this didn't get done after all. The car was picked up on Wednesday and I currently have the face lifted demo Cooper S until mine is ready. I have logged a complaint with MINI CS as they and my dealer were both told the vehicle had been kept inside and was perfect by the dealer it was transferred from.

Overall a terrible experience and have had the demo car longer than my own one!


On the plus side the demo car has the autobox and have been really impressed with it. Really like the headsup display as well.
that's the joy of a mini,they only want your money then no one is interested including mini not just dealers,is the third new shape mini we have had and will never have another can not make our minds weather to keep it or get rid of it

Can the heads-up be retrofitted quite easily? I see a few new ones on eBay

My approach would be to reject it, utter shambles. If you like the demo, make them offer that to you?

On the HUD, MINI do produce an after market version but I wouldn’t recommend it...

thanks for the video. it looks quite tacky stuck on with tape especially considering the price. I won't bother. The car is allegedly going to be read tomorrow. We'll see

Finally...

I picked up the car yesterday and all appears to be well. The dealer has put another £100 on my account and said that next time I'm passing they will fill up up the fuel tank for free - I'll be running on fumes at the time

Had my mate fit the dashcams last night and going to see about getting the remaining chrome bits blackened out

It can but looks awful in my opinion and isn't quite the same as it is factory fitted
