As was alluded to a couple months ago on this site MINIUSA is set to give out thousands of MINI-FINI cup-link systems to new MINI owners over the next year. This seems to be an obvious attempt to contend with the number one consumer complaint in last years JD Power survey.
Interestingly I'm also told that MINI is thinking about mailing a batch out to all those who have recently purchased their cars as well. I wasn't able to get a build date range but am told recent deliveries will be the ones to get them if it happens.
For more information on the MINI-FINI Cup-Link system check out my review here.
