For those who chose Pepper White, what color did you choose for the roof/mirror cap and the wheels, black or white? I cant decide...

You can't order pepper white with s white roof and mirror caps, it can only be black roof or all pepper white I believe

Mine has black roof, black mirrors and black rims. I upgraded to the 17" Cosmo black rim. My car looks like a "panda".

I am tempted by pepper white body and roof with black mirror caps and sliver rims. Does anyone who have the similar config could post a picture? Really want to see it in real to make sure I made the right decision before I place order.

Thanks!

Is pepper white more cream than white?
Even if you've never been a lover of white cars most likely you'll love Pepper White. I don't have PW but I have a 1972 BMW 2002 with "Chamonix" paint (which is a "vanilla" color)....I used to use Pepper White as a touch up paint (in a tube) until I found a better match.

I personally love Pepper White. There was a post on this forum of someone's new JCW in Pepper White and it had something like a red roof, black mirrors (or red) and black bonnet stripes, with black track spoke wheels, and I loved the look!

Good luck deciding....look at lots of photos!! :D

Sure! The Rims are call "cosmos spoke alloy wheel" in black. I upgraded through mini when I build my car at the dealership. Here is the website that sales it separately for people who are interested. (www.ecstuning.com/ES2745105/) They have the exact rims in silver too! Currently running 205/45 R17 all season performance run-flat tires.

The run-flat tires are kind of bumpy. I am thinking to change the tires back to normal tires in about a year or so from now.

looking great! can you share the spec of the wheels and tires

Nice to see so many pepper white coopers, mine is pw with black roof and mirror caps, standard silver alloys.

I managed to post a pic in the gallery section but can't seem to be able to attach to a post - time to look at the FAQ's lol

thanks for the useful info. i saw from the website that the wheels are R17x7, while i am running R17x7.5. my tire specs is the same as yours, ie. 205/45/R17 but i m considering to run 215/45/R17 for my next tire change.

if you saw my other thread, you would realise that i changed 2 sets of wheels within 1 week of receiving my car. the first workshop actually gave me a R17x8 wheels, which were protruding out of the car and the 205/45 tires were too narrow. as a result, it was so stretched that it could barely cover the wheels.

wish i had this info before i changed my wheels.

I'm not sure if seeing all the combinations is actually helping you decide :D jejeje but here's another: my Pepper White MCS with all the elements in black (17' wheels).

I mean, I love my car but can't deny that the other combinations look sexy as **** in their own way



What about mixing black or silver rims with the chrome package (mirrors, front and back) ok I'm gonna stop now XD
