Hey guys,

Just thought I'd post to say hello - used to use the forums when I had my A1 so thought I'd try you out on here seen as I've joined the family!

My R56 Cooper went in for a service and this Cooper D was sat in the showroom pre-registered with delivery miles so I asked if they could do me a deal and they paid off my negative equity in the Cooper I'd had for six months and the deal was done.. One of the longest weeks waiting though!

Here she is, my old car is the Pepper White Cooper:

Nice all in black.

Is that a Cooper S with American spec orange reflectors in the left hand side of picture2?

Thanks
No it's a UK Spec Cooper with the Sport Pack and White Indicator Lenses. ☺

Thanks for that.

The car I'm intrigued with is what looks like the front of a Cooper S parked in front of the large estate car. It seems to have the orange side repeaters low down on the black wheel arch trim that is only found on North American cars.

Reason I'm interested is that I'll be ordering a Thunder Grey S next week and my wife has seen pictures of American spec ones and likes the orange bits!!

Oh I am sorry! That's my mums 2009 Cooper S Cab with the JCW package, the side markers come part of the body kit I presume? Although my Cooper had them, it does appear to have a bulb in however they don't iluminate they just act as reflectors. I'm sure if you asked the dealer to wire them up they would.
