Thanks for the welcome Paul...just checked out your pics, very nice ride and I like the older ones two...classics in the UK are just so different from those in the States. Looks like the pics of the Walnut dash were a veneer or decal of some sort huh? I'm thinking that the Alloy Patina will grow on me...it was the only spec I was not sure on with my car...how do you like it?
Welcome to mini2! Check out my gallery, you might find some pics of a BRG Mcs that might tide you over till your baby gets here.
IMHO, that trim just doesnt fit the interior, stick with the patina or something. I love the beige leather but was out of my price range for my baby. The stripes hold up just fine. Its been pretty cold here in STL and a buddy here has a PW/B w/ black bonnet stripes and his are holding like glue. Hope this helps ya!
Enjoy mini2 and the fun motoring ahead of ya!
well I have to say I love the alloy patina - but then again I should do as it is an option on the cooper and had to pay for it! Even my dealers think the walnut is too plasticky - which of course it is!
good luck with the wait and keep us up to date with how it goes.
depends where you are but most places (at least in the US) dealer's/you can't legally put the 'decal' over the airbag part of the dash. You'll notice in the picture minisoopercooper posted its missing.
not tryin 2 offen ne1 with it/ordered it but i agree this the above quote. ive seen it and excluding the 1950's AC cobra, i dont think ive ever seen a nice 'plastic replica' wood finish in a car ( merc's attempt being possibiliy the worst).... yuk yuk yuk
i went for the bright silver option owith my S as was also not 2 keen on the patina as i wud b 4ever tryin 2 keen it 2 get a nicer finish
BUT.... thats just me and there must b plenty of peepz that like it else it wudnt be an option!
