Default Y cable - its says yes on here, the dealer says no - 14th November 2013, 09:48 PM

Folks, my coupe is being picked up by me tomorrow!
I have the full media pack.

should i have the y cable?

The dealer says they are an accessory only.
It says on here they come with the car.
On some parts of the mini site it talks about them as an accessory.

Whats the deal, where is the proof I can use?


Thanks
JC

I thought it was part of the media pack option but could b wrong as could have changed since

If they don't supply I'd be plaguing for them to chuck one in

Don't know about proof though

Yes it is standard, they are trying it on.......

Only just brought a CM with media and the cable was sitting by the gearstick waiting for us.

Cable is included in cars with media. Not included in cars without. Either way should be negotiated as part of the deal, if the dealer can't throw in a £40 lead they're not worth dealing with.

The OP has full media so it is included.

If the dealer doesn't hand one over then get on to MINI UK and name & shame the dealer!

Tossers!!! Why are they even questioning it. Brand new car versus £40 lead. Idiots!

If the car is new and you have media it's included. They should order it through parts and cost it back to the car. That's how we do it

Mine didn't come with it, but they gave me a Y cable, and it was the wrong one. Couldn't justify the 120 mile round trip to get it sorted even though they said they would refund me the money I paid for the right one if I returned the wrong one.
