Anyone got any pics of this option? I'm still furiously changing my order every 5 mins and was wondering how this looks on the new car.

I've sat in one - I really liked it - we have the grey headlining in our older Mini - and I like that too but if I was choosing it would be black any day so that's why I've gone for that in the new one!

I have it Cosmic but my photos don't really show it up very well. I really like it. I like the way it makes it feel quite enclosed (compared to what the standard off-white colour did) I was used to that feeling in the RCZ, I'd imagine some people wouldn't like it though.
What colour paint and seats etc have you chosen? That would certainly influence my choice. I'll try and remember to take another photo for you tonight!

Thanks Donna, I have ordered the Moonwalk Grey with black contrasting roof. The seats are black leather and rest of cabin dark so think it would look great.
Are the materials used (particularly on roof) any different then stock material?
The reason I ask is on my 1st test drive of a F56 (I've had a few to keep me amused) I could of sworn it was a completely different fabric, i.e. not like that fuzzy felt feeling-or did I imagine that?

It's defo more 'cloth' than 'velour' if that make sense. I'll try and take some decent pics tonight.

I agree, the black will look nicer on your colour options.

The lighter colour could be prone to marking aswell.....

Cos, check out the pics of my Coupe in the galleries. That's got Anthracite Headlining with black leather lounge seats ... I'm going for a similar spec interior on the F56

Thanks! Just had a peek-nice cars!

As I said (and I think Donna confirmed) it's a different material used then previous models-much nicer, if my memory serves me well, but I was so giddy after that test drive that I could be deluded/wrong.

*waits impatiently for someone to upload a pic* :D

Some other users on the Facebook group were kind enough to post pics, I hope they don't mind me showing here in case anyone else was wondering.
As you can see, it's really, REALLY nice material. Plush and padded. I'm going for it.

Cheers all.

just an FYI, it's not just the headlining that's anthracite, it also includes the pillar finishers and sun blinds in anthracite as well. the std alternative is a light grey which doesn't really match to anything except the satellite grey leather. i never really understand why car manufacturers make the interior upper environment out of a completely different colour in this way.

The lounge leather will definitely look better without.
that's what I'm hoping. From what I've seen the lounge leather seats make the interior quite retro looking. Have to remember to have a towel in the glove box so I can get in immediately from the gym!!

and as such like Cos said they'll work well with the light grey lounge leather seats. I was afraid of feeling closed in but I guess having a sunroof will help with that!
