We picked up the wife's Copper S yesterday, well worth the wait. We did purchase the mirror caps & scuttles in the grey check but have not fitted them (Oh & she bought the Cooper Bulldog as well !!!).
Pictures attached.


PS. Noticed the drivers seatbelt seems twisted & damage on the belt itself, looks like the clip has been put on wrong so looks like a trip back to the dealer. Anyone else experienced this?

Lovely colour:cool: I picked up my White Silver yesterday, no issues other than it requires a bit of TLC in the detailing / waxing area. That's also a good time to closely inspect every part of the MC.:nerd:

Looks good

My Blazing Red MCS arrived on the transporter this morning - due to pick it up 9am Saturday. May take a while as just about every options box ticked.

Looks really good! I've gone for white silver but I was/am very tempted by the blazing red!

Is there much of a difference between blazing red and chilli red? I used to have an old chilli red Cooper and I saw an awesome metallic red on a Paceman in Coventry but I think that must have been another variation. From the price alone I'm not really sure I understand the semi-metallics...

I've got a blazing red cooper and it's a darker red than chilli red. I didn't understand what semi metallic was until I got it. In some lights it looks like a solid red colour and in other lights it looks like a metallic. I would definitely recommend, it's a really unusual colour

Blazing red is a wonderful colour!

Seriously, the way it changes with light conditions makes it particularly interesting.

Blazing red is quite different, looks different in different light but we like it. We prefer the black & red contrast (as opposed to red & white). We were going to add the JCW mirror & scuttles but the red on them is the chilli red & looks a lot different. We went for the grey & black check instead but havn't had them fitted yet. I will post more picks when done. Col

Please do Col as I am tempted by them.
I will be having the mirror & scuttles fitted Friday so pictures to follow, unless anyone is going to Stanford Hall on Sunday, we will be there with my old mini & this mini

scuttles fitted

We have had the check (grey/black) scuttles & mirror caps fitted. Not 100% happy with the "wonkey" fitting. Please see photo & comment? Going back to dealer tomorrow so would be interested in your views.....
