I've had my blazing red cooper for about 10 days now and absolutely love it. This will be my fifth mini (2x chilli red, black, Pepper white and blazing red) and I have to say I was disappointed when I found out they were no longer doing chilli red. I pulped for the blazing red with a white roof, which is classed as a semi metallic. I have to say I love the colour and have had a lot of people comment on how nice it is. I also now understand now what semi metallic is because the car looks a solid red in some lights and then in others you can see the metallic. It's a really unusual colour and I can highly recommend it.
