Hey guys.
I have my order in place,mini cooper SD,but i am really indecisive regarding the exterior colour.
I am going with a black profile,black cosmos rims + black roof
chrome mirror caps
black bonnet stripes
exterior chrome line
and some jcw details on the exterior.

If u could help me decide with the colour. Moonwalk or thunder grey??

Regards

I attached a picture of mine. moonwalk grey for a 2015 mini cooper S which i got last month. It's a tad darker in the picture due to the shade, but still a cool color. Tinted with black rims, black mirrors, and black roof. It does have black racing stripes on the hood. I initially wanted thunder grey but the dealer couldn't find one with all the options (i.e. Roof rails, comfort access) I wanted. The moonwalk grey will not show scratches as much as a the thunder grey will. Moonwalk grey is growing on me more and more each day.

I voted moonwalk grey. I wasn't thrilled about the color when I first saw it, but now that I've had it for a while, I absolutely love it. Doesn't show the dirt like the darker colors and looks stunning when polished up. Also shows off the black roof and stripes well. Nice contrast.

I believe you will see responses that are positive regarding both colors. I know it won't help you much if it's a 50/50 response, but that'll likely be what the result is, since both colors have their attributes.

While I tend to go for the darker colors, I also own a vintage cream white car (similar to Pepper White), and I love that color. I also love Black! See the problem?

It's up to you in the end, so go with your gut on this one...you can't make the wrong choice between these two greys! ;)

Cheers,

John

I went for thunder grey. I got stuck like you when picking the colour but I preferred the darkness of thunder grey. Also, these nice photos of the TG/black mini helped me make my mind up: http://premiummoto.pl/mini-cooper-s-f56-zdjecia/

Check out my post in this forum from the other day for my SD which is in thunder grey with black stripes/roof/wheels. I do have chrome line and chrome mirror caps like the mini shown via that link.

I have MG and no regrets what so ever. Doesn't look dirty unlike black or white. I like the MG and black contrast especially on MCS as it has a lot of black plasctics around (bonnet scoop, air vents etc).

Rest is up to you. Don't listen to us, If I had gone by the voting and suggestions then I would have bought a red MC but I went with my gut feel and truly in love with the colour.

Got the Moonwalk and really love it. Black roof, wheels and bonnet stripes really set it off. The final touch was a 50% window tint all around. I cannot believe the compliments I get specifically on the color of the car. I think that the lightness of the grey really works in contrast with the black accents.

ps: I do not dislike the Thunder one bit, but can't afford two of these beauties ;)

Same here. Compliments. You can see my Moonwalk Grey pic at the beginning of the thread. I had the dealership swap out my separated racing stripes for the sports stripes over the weekend. The stripes are not on the roof but I don't think it matters as it's a black roof.
