After a nearly a decade of MINI ownership, I pulled the trigger again last Thursday night, and placed an order on a 2013 MINI Cooper S Clubman. So exactly 10-years after going through the order process on my 2003 MINI, I am going through it again. It is exciting to have a new MINI on the way, but bittersweet at the same time, as it means I will be saying goodbye to my beloved 2003 MINI Cooper S. Even after 10-years, she still puts a smile on my face every time I sit behind the wheel.
I have been told by my Motoring Advisor at Knauz MINI, that my order was approved on Friday, May 25th, and that I should have a VIN number assigned later this week. Based on that, I can expect her to enter production in early June, and assuming all goes well, I should be motoring around in a Pepper White and Black MINI Cooper S Clubman by mid-July.
