: New mini finally :D

After being stuck with a corsa for too long finally bought my new mini!
what do you think? theyre putting stripes and tints and 16" blaster alloys on before they deliver it, im going to put my clear lenses on aswell, what else can i do to it to improve the looks without having to declare it on insurance?

Get the roof rapped in black, that would look really nice with the caps and strips.
I had my pure silver's roof rapped with black caps and strips!

ive asked about this on my old mini but the place i visited said there would be little gaps around the edge of the roof and the spoiler and its expensive which right now i dont have the money to do im at uni with no job, what are your opinions on a jcw grill?

surely you would need to declare a new grille on your insurance?

I had my roof rapped no gaps at all!
This is what my silver cooper looks like:

i got quoted £150 from bmw to have stripes down the car, i was thinking about getting a black roof and stripes too!
Your mini looks very farmiliar murker :P
p.s. you have posted this in the wrong section, you've posted it in the gen 1 section and from what i can see yours is a gen 2..

don't get stripes from a dealer! a specialist will do them for less than a third of that!

yeah take it to a specialist got quoted £45 + vat, i had all sorts of problems getting the oem stripes replaced on my old mini after just 2 weeks when they discoloured, this is the gen 2 section. I didnt get the stipes and tints fitted just got a discount on what the dealer charge so i could get the car quicker, too much excitement! now im not sure whether to get stripes what do you think?
