    My son's 2014 JCW Paceman (that I Carvana-ed toward Jessie, after giving him my 2018 BRZ) had 19" rims. Its wheels and tires felt so stiff, chattering over road irregularities and slamming over potholes. I much prefer my 17" Tentacle Spokes.

    That is a "Where's Waldo", shipping version! Took me a hot second to find the little bullseye on the ship. That is very exciting for you!

    Ha, ha! Amazing to see how many ships out there. Humans sure look like ants.

    I really enjoyed tracking my Mini too. Was worth it to sign up for the one boat tracking so I could follow it away from shorelines

    That is super cool and now I cannot wait to see my own car go through the Panama Canal! For now, I must wait to see what the build number is. I'll bug my dealer in a couple of weeks.

    Me, too. Waiting for build number. We seem to be very close on our order dates.

    I just got my build number! My dealer texted it to me about two hours ago. My Garage shows it as "Scheduled For Production"!

    How long has it been since you placed the order? We just placed an order Saturday. Wondering how long I should wait before bothering the salesman.

    Congrats! Hopefully that means I will get one soon, as well.

    I emailed my sales guy, who said, "I was saving this as a Friday surprise" - but I got my production number! Whoop! (I did not reply and say "what do you mean you were waiting for Friday?!")

    Congrats! It's a race (that you will probably win because of your geographical advantage)!

    I think my order went in on Thursday the 11th, and GvilleGuy lists his as the 9th. I think it is fair to give your salesman a week, but you could also politely send a note after a couple of days to speak of your interest in that.

    Woman: "Doctor Smith, did my pregnancy test come back?"
    Dr. Smith: "I was saving this as a Friday surprise, but you're going to have a baby!"
    Being kind, I think your sales guy just forgot to tell you.

    @bldxyz - I called Ask Mini just now - the rep estimates my car going through production March 8 to 13. I imagine yours would be similar.

    Sweet! I was thinking about doing that sometime this or next week. Now I'll wait a bit longer to call in.

    Either way, that's good news, as the production begin-date in early March suggests a delivery in late April to early May. That's about a month sooner than my dealer had advised when we were making the decision to delay the 2021 to a 2022.

    I was thinking the same. Late April early May. The UK port delay is the big unknown assuming ours get made March 8'ish.

    I just spoke to them today and their estimate was March 10. I bet ours are produced side by side!

    Well, more likely one in front of the other.
