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 .

Very impressive catflap. I have yet to see an all Pepper White F56. Looks stunning. Did the dealer spray those wheels or are they an option in the UK?
The original factory black alloys we wanted were on back order so decided to leave the standard silver 17's on the order, the dealer sprayed them gloss black during preparation.
