Here's another email we received recently that we thought best to pose the question to our readers:

Can you/your sources shed some light on the Charleston VPC and the apparent delay in shipping to dealers of 05 MINI\'S due to alleged shortages of wheel caps and cup holders? My 05 MCS has been there since 8/4 and has a EDD of 9/1!! Any insights you can provide will be appreciated by those of us currently anxiously awaiting our cars.

Thanks, I appreciate all you do.
