It's Moonwalk Grey that is "Free"Unless it's a special paint order I think the whole selection of standard paint colours should be included in the cars price!
The reason thunder grey is 'free' is because it's only primer ;-)
It has gone up if you wanted Pepper White or Volcanic Orange. Maybe the Moonwalk Grey has gone down as not as popular where as Pepper White is the most popular price so a big increase in the coffers of MINI..The price of the car hasn't gone up, it just picking up pepper white which is now £475 more. If you change to moonwalk grey the price of the car hasn't gone up
Prices are creeping up here in Canada.What a joke! Moonwalk grey will be next!
