I think that the thunder grey mini is a great choice for people who want to put some of the graphics on their car. The neutral base doesn't overwhelm things, and it really makes the graphics that you choose pop on the mini.
Here's Mine. I found the grey with black wheels a bit boring...so I upgraded my summer rims and stuck some lights and stripes on and now I happier!
I'm running 215 40 r18's. They are a little noisy but look the part (Pilot SS Michelins)
I never thought I'd lean toward a gray color for my next MINI but this sharp dark Thunder Gray has my attention!! Have had a 2008 MCS in all Pepper White & my current 2012 JCWCoupe in Spice Orange with black roof...no stripes! Will likely go for tbhe 4 door F55 S hatch in Thunder Gray with black roof & wheels when it hits the MINIUSA configurator sometime in the upcoming months.
After what seemed to be forever, I finally got my car. Too late for any great pics, so that will have to wait, besides it rained most of the afternoon. I've already put 70 km on it, gotta break this baby in!
