2011 MINI Cooper JCW – MINI Connected on hold

The above pictured 2011 MINI Cooper JCW could potentially be my next MINI. I actually went this week to my MINI dealer to place an order on it, but I was told that I can order it, but if I want to order MINI Connected I have to wait to order it, because MINI has put the MINI Connected on hold. I wasn’t told why, but I can speculate on why, but I won’t. I wasn’t even told when it will be available to order, so I’ll just have to wait patiently a bit longer. I’ve waiting this long to order, so what’s a few more days or weeks. As soon as I know more, I’ll post on here and I’ll talk about it on my nxtMINI podcast. Don’t forget to check out episode 9 of nxtMINI podcast that was posted today,we talk about MINI Connected being on hold. Motor On!

    The Mini Connect is still on hold, and according to those at the MTTS it won’t be long before it will be available, orderwise.

    As for the Red Roof/mirrors availability, it will be available on Midnight Black, Eclipse Gray, Pepper White, BRG ll (my favorite) and White-Silver. The Spice Orange, new Ice Blue, Chili Red, Lazer Blue, Horizon Blue will not be available with this Chili Red Roof. The new JCW Checkered cloth interior, with red piping, and the lounge black leather with the red piping are both JCW exclusives. I still think that it’s too bad that Mini/BMW elected not to do the Variable Timing, but the new self adjusting clutch and ectronic torque steering correction are all there, and needed.

    I’ve ordered, although the pricing is not available yet but I’ve been informed that the price increase is negligible. Not loaded, but sufficient for me:

    BRG ll with Red roof & mirrors
    JCW Checkered cloth with red piping seats
    Chili Red accents on the dash and doors
    Blackened Wheels
    H&K sound system
    HID Headlights with
    Adaptive lights
    Cold Package
    Rear Fog lights
    Auto dimming inside mirror
    Garage opener.

    That’s it, and it should come in just over $32K. I’d have opted for the Sport Suspension, but I’ve already got a set of H&R Sport Springs. That’ll get her down, and also do a little improvement in the suspension department. Oh yes, I’ve already got a pair of Carbon Fibre outside door handles and rear hatch handle. I’ll probably go for the gas door in carbon fibre to pull it all together. November delivery.
