It seems to me Mini is a little slow to change or bring new colors to the market for the F55/56. I wish they would give the customer the option to order different colors from different models to be sprayed on the F55/56. What colors would you like to see in the future ?

I would love to see the jungle green and kite blue for the F56.

There was a deeper orange in the experimental bay when we did our factory tkur. Really expected to see it on offer as it looked good but not yet. Likewise a nice pale blue. (Both together make a good gulf car!)

Purple. Purple is my favourite colour. Had a Peugeot 407 saloon once which was purple. Loved that car :)

New clubby in burgundy is close, with white roof. Cool as IMO!

I know my wife would like to see Ice Blue come back. I want True Blue, or a lighter blue for the Hardtop back too :)

As long as they continue to offer it in a blue as close to the iconic e36 blue that I fell in love with on BMW

A "real" orange. I really like volcanic orange, but let's be honest, it's yellow.

looks orange to me..... but any excuse to put a pic up.






I'd like it if they added a wider range of colours, and dare I say it Fiat has the right idea with the pastel shades looking a bit more retro. I wouldn't say no to an F56 in a shade close to the lighter greens or blues from the good old BMC days :)

Yeah, I agree, there used to be some great shades of orange and brown around, remember my Mum & Dad's Mini Van being an awesome shade of 70's orange. We had a couple of Austin Allegro estates, brown and red if I remember, my Mum was a sales rep at the time. Her boss had an Austin Princess in metallic silver. Envy!!!!

My first car was an orange Austin Maxi, my Dad's old car which he handed to me as an 18th Birthday present, pastelly greeny brown colour, like the one below (some may say babysh*t brown). Everyone at college used to take the p*ss (yeah, they all had Mini's and Beetles), but it was a great car, went all over the place in it and got me through the first couple of years at Uni. Ended up being T-boned by an Audi 80 and written off. Had a Mini for a while after that, but to be honest, it was a heap after the Maxi. Loads of issues with it, let me down once on a red hot date night for which I never forgave it...... I swapped it for a much more reliable ford escort 1.3L.

Happy days :D
