Mine is a 1.5 Cooper...

...with Chilli Pack and Media XL pack...

...in Volcanic Orange with white roof, mirror caps and bonnet stripes.

Satellite Grey Cloth and Interior Line.

Probably have about £500 left in the kitty. What must have options am I missing?!

Is the HUD just a gimmick?

welcome aboard @Pinto!

as for the HUD it depends on the user to be honest, I think the system is simple and effective, whatever info you're looking for readily available on the dash :D looks cool too

It would look better without that glass piece, rather have it projected off of the windshield like it is with BMW's.

Thanks for all the replies. The HUD feels like a proper boys toy so that will get the vote. Might need a pair of aviators to match the fighter pilot feel!

Have also stuck parking sensors on it in order to prevent Mrs M from hitting anything in her blind spot.

Pictures will follow upon collection!

What are people's view if the John Cooper steering wheel option? Is it a gimmick or is it worth another £50 of my hard earned money? I guess, ultimately, it does the same job as the standard sports leather wheel with multi function controls which I currently have spec'd?!

My dealer confirmed today that I will get my mitts on it in Week 15, the second week of April. Happy Days. Under 3 months to go!

Providing there are no hold ups, I should be able to post photos of my actual car, registered and on the road, on Wednesday 16th April... Feels like a lifetime away!

A BMW 318d Tourer. So, quite a change!

I am downsizing but not as much as you would first think! The BMW isn't that big inside!
