Please help.....

I have been provided with a test car for a few days before I place the order. It has the anthracite headlining which I thought I wanted but after driving around I think it makes the cabin too dark for my liking. So now decided to go with normal headlining also getting Mini Yours Carbon Black Leather interior and Mini Yours Steering Wheel

My question is what do you good people think of this interior black leather, light headlining with the Mini Yours Off White Interior? I was all set on the Mini Yours alloy interior but think the off white actually looks really nice with the black door cards, black dashboard and black seats. Would this be weird when it actually arrives?

External colour is Pepper White, Black Roof and Black Wheels

Really appreciate your comments

Agreed I rather like the off white interior. I have anthracite headlining which might be nice against the white but it's silly money or silly to be an extra!

I had anthracite headlining on my previous Mini and now have the standard grey which does make a pleasant change and the cabin less gloomy. Anthracite isn't worth the extra in my opinion and I would have the contrast of black/white /grey instead of an all black theme.

Being pulled more and more to Mini Your Carbon Leather with off white interior and grey headlining. Would love to see any actual photos of the off white interior trim.

The quick answer is that I think it will all look great - particularly in a pepper white/black car. That said...

I LOVE my leather lounge seat (albeit in grey). They are very comfortable yet supportive. I also really like my MINI yours steering wheel - it's very grippy and looks good. And the 3rd gen normal headliner is more grey and less tan than shown in the configurator - I think it will accent the off-white nicely.

I read someone's post (sorry I don't remember which thread) who got the MINI yours off-white and LOVED the dash pieces - they have a very cool perforated texture/look. The other pieces he just liked - a more straightforward off-white gloss. Also, I really like the lower middle dash pieces which the off-white interior style offers (and no other).

As for pictures - I found autotrader to be a great resource. Narrow down the MINI search criteria then keyword for 'off-white'. You'll get some false positives but it should point you at dealerships that have a MINI w/off-white for sale. Then go to the dealership's website and look at the (usually) better pictures.

Autotrader is a fantastic resource! If it hadn't been for my reviewing actual photos of the new JCW's on there, I would have made a huge mistake on a few things before I opted to change on my order.

MINI has so many variations, it indeed can make deciding difficult.

Good luck!

i have pics of the off white trim in my gallery. i have it paired with the pearl cloth/leather seats, carbon black colour roll & anthracite headliner so it's the only light accent in the interior.
