Makes me angry that there were so few positive reviews, the Roadster is an absolute blast!

Nice

I saw mine today when I went to sign paperwork, but I don't get it until Monday or Tuesday. This last couple of days is worse than tracking it across the Atlantic!

Sweeeeeet.... Looks cool & great fun.

(Reviews....Fuh , If the Mini is not great, how come I'm having to wait approx 14 weeks for mine!! They can't build the fast enough. They don't start building mine until the end of April).

United Kingdom Male View minicore's Chili Red & Body Color 2nd Gen MINI John Cooper Works Profile
 
Very, very nice - I spec'd up a Roadster online last week, more out of curiosity than anything, but basically identical to this, even down to the Chili Red mirrors and red Colour Line, but minus the stripes, and with the Recarro seats. Not sure if I could actually justify the added expense for the seats if it came to the crunch (second choice would be exactly as you've specified), so again - very nice.

Only thing I would change, and this goes for all JCW spec cars, is that I think the front grille surround should be black (as per earlier second gen JCWs) rather than chrome.

Congrats on easily the nicest Roadster I've seen thus far.
