Ah okay 👌 makes sense, I know the cheapest I can find the Genuine Mini piano black waistline for the F56 is £325 on eBay however not sure if my Mini dealership will fit it for me unless purchased direct from them and think it would be a lot more not to mention no doubt fitting fee of £100 which seems to be the least they want to charge (quoted when I asked if they would hard wire my existing Dash Cam to my new Mini even though Halfords only charge £35) so it would probably end up over £500 so may just also try the cheaper tape option first to see if I really need it 😉
When I picked mine up yesterday the salesman said they get a lot of them wrapped for customers, that might be another option if you don't fancy trying yourself? It would still be a lot less than £500.

Pretty sure you can option the black belt line for the F56, and isn’t much at all, £100 I think. (But dealer needs to add to the factory order as doesn’t show on configurator I think) As others have said not an option for Countryman.

Wow wished I’d know that earlier 🥲 would not dare add anything to order right now in case of further delays and having all ready changed my trim from Classic to Sport 😉

Wish dealerships would mention this sort of thing when placing an order if not in configuration :/

I asked my dealer about adding this for my F60 at order time, but that is when I found out not an option for Countryman. I will probably go down the vinyl wrap route, but at the moment belt line doesn’t bother me, but then I have white silver. Car goes for rear tints on Friday (didn’t want to order via factory as would have tipped me over the £40k limit, so £325 odd extra road tax p/a, no thanks. Tints costing £180 + VAT, so not bad at all.

Just finished correction and ceramic coating (2 x coats MOHS and 1 x coat Skin) paint, alloys, exhaust tips and plastics. And polished and sealed glass and pano with hydrophobic coating . Spent about 15-18 hours on it from Thursday to today. All sealed ready for the winter, and saved myself the best part of £700-£1000 I would have been charged by a pro detailer.

Wow that’s expensive. I paid £250 for the official belt line kit, I got that from rybrook mini.

I don’t know where you are but I’d happily fit one to your car once I’ve practiced on mine. I’m in Leicestershire. You may have to wait a long time for me to practice on mine though 🤣
