Collected my wife's new Pepper White MCS today. The Countryman Coooper S is gone...:(

I realise that it might seem a strange time to collect (10 days before the new reg) though we're going to put a private plate on it soon.

Only one problem on collection, the JCW roof spoiler has a couple of paint defects which means the whole spoiler has to be re-painted.

We're very impressed with the car so far, just as good as we remember from the test drives. We went a bit mad with the spec and chose to add the variable damper control option, it makes an incredible difference when changing from Green/Mid to Sport mode - really stiffens the car up and (combined with the way it modifies the steering weight and the throttle response) really does make the car feel like a go-kart! The Mini is acceptably comfortable when not in Sport mode too - best of both worlds!

Waiting for it to get dark now to go try the adaptive LED's and see what the interior lighting is like :).

Final Spec is:

Sorry - the post's gone belly up, my table's screwed and the photo's don't show up!

Can't edit it for some reason either so can the mods delete the post so I can try again?

Wow I thought I went mad with the extras but you win hands down. Love the colour our old one is white but do like that you have left the roof matching and not gone down the black route. Also love the red dash trim really lifts the car enjoy only two weeks left time I can have the same joy at picking ours up

Looks great.

Nice shot of the interior, I ordered the Black Chequered dash and your photo shows it really well, so happy I chose it.

Great shots, keep 'em coming!
