I was asked today why GPMINIs rear windows weren’t tinted … good question! So Joe suggested that I check the “window sticker” specification sheet:
Tinted rear windows aren’t listed – but they’re also not listed for my other MINI so that doesn’t prove much.
Interestingly though, there are some other quirks of the GP specification: I wonder where passengers 3 and 4 are supposed to sit?!
Also, it is claimed that the GP is pre-wired for CD changer – and many owners have tried but failed to find the wiring; it must be really well hidden!
Finally, although not really an error, whoever edited the GP specific document must have run out of space – they listed DSC in the “engineering and safety features” section, but overwrote the “flat tire monitor” option which appears in the same place on normal MINI lists (hopefully they didn’t omit the actual flat tire monitor function!):
With errors like these, it’s no wonder we were wrongly told that the GP was pre-wired for the alarm … the GP drives wonderfully and looks fabulous, but it’s complete list of features & specifications are hard to find 🙂
(and we’re still waiting to discover if and how a factory alarm can be installed into a GP … are you listening, Mr. Stracco?)
