Hi,

 

Just noticed on my V5 that the date of first registartion is showing as 31/10/2000. Is this correct as the car is x reg. and they stopped making the mini on the 3rd October 2000?

 

Any Ideas?

 

Thanks,

 

Daniel

Could quite easily have been weeks between date of manufacture and date of first registration.

So the date on the v5 is ok then?

Its the registration date, not the build date, all normal
There are 30 year old minis still out there with delivery miles only waiting to be registered.

In late Summer/Autumn 2000 the Mini showroom price was upped further just as production was to end, presumably MG-Rover marketing were expecting a surge of nostalgic car buying. However in spite of the hype surrounding the demise of the Mini, sales didn't take off quite as thought but dropped further......so soon after MG-Rover dropped the price by £900 to get rid of the last 2,000 stock of Mini's to find retail customers before the New MINI R50 (mostly designed by Rover but launched under BMW) appeared in early 2001. In the Autumn of 2001 you could still buy a 'new old stock' classic Mini MPi......

At a show there was a 51 plate cooper sports that was only a few numbers less than mine at W reg. the 500 register get a hard on about late coopers for some reason.
