Yesterday was a good day! Crowfoot Mini delivered my new 2006 CooperS/Checkmate. I was way too buy last night to get pictures for you but will post a bunch tonight. I've only put on 30 km but I am very impressed. The inside is incredible and checkmate package is crisp, clean and well coordinated. I am pleased with the whole build.
I understand mine is one of the only Checkmate+JCW in Canada on the road as of Nov 16th. True? Anyone get theirs earlier?
It always makes me laugh whenever I see a north american Mini fitted with one of those big-ass cupholders It gets damn hot in summer "down under" but I don't think I've ever had the need to quench a thirst big enough to fill a cup the size of one of those cup holders
Sure you can sit in it. The colour scheme is excellent I agree; different and unique, without being over the top.
The back window is normal; i think it just a wierd reflection from the flash angle. The window trim is the normal dark black but the flash goes right through the glass and shows up like this on my camera.
I really like the interior of the CM mini's. But I couldn't get myself to order one, the checkers by the fender look tacky, IMO. The CM package would have been only $350 more than the car I eventually ordered too. The dark silver works for me
