Picture update on 3/14/12. Looks like there has been some concrete poured on the outside. They finally have the doors to the building locked so when I went I was unable to get pics of the inside, I will try and get those in upcoming weeks.

I do have a bit of news though, It looks like one of the Top VW Tech's is going to be the head tech at MINI. The whole team will be undergoing MINI training in the coming months. It also looks like the shop is going to look similar to the VW shop with its lifts that rise up out of the floorand its very clean look. I'll post a pic of the VW shop soon. But for now here are the picture updates for this week. 421627_605629676802_69103532_32379531_1239962322_n.jpgYay concrete!422716_605629641872_69103532_32379529_1873375710_n.jpg427133_605629626902_69103532_32379528_963256164_n.jpg

 No, unfortunately not until the dealership opens cause we will not be getting parts until then.

Here are a whole bunch of pics for today's dealership construction update. 550621_618743496602_69103532_32427815_82378131_n.jpg

Picture of the front of the dealership, now with a roof!

579559_618743471652_69103532_32427814_1576795781_n.jpg

This is going to be the new entrance to the dealership which will allow peopel to pull right into the service drive.

A view from the garage on the East side of the building. The service drive will be just behind where the crane is.

Inside the service area. This will ultimately be tiled.

I will have some new pictures later in the week.

I did get a lump of dissapointing news today, it looks like we will be opening late summer, I do not know of what the day will be and I have no control over it. As soon as I know, I wil let you guys know.

That is a fiberglass MINI which will hang from the ceiling/mounted to the wall in the showroom!

 

Also, Look what we got in. SOME NEW MINI!
