The day is upon us. The first 2005 MINI hardtops delivered to customers on the East Coast should happen sometime today or tomorrow. Congrats to all those whose cars about to be delivered. MotoringFile would love to hear any first impressions of the '05 changes so feel free to send them in via the contact link above.
You can check out an extensive gallery of the US spec 2005 MINIs that were just delivered to MINI of Peabody over at Ian Culls MINI weblog (also where the picture above came from): [LINK]
Update: Pre-spec Convertible demos will be here around the end of August. Each dealer should get four demos. The first batch of customer order convertibles is just about to start production, so we should see those in early September.
