Question Can't decide on a colour combo for a new cooper with sunroof

Hi all, I'm planning on ordering my first mini this weekend. Going for a standard cooper with the chili pack and a sunroof but cannot decide on a colour combo

I've been thinking of a black roof since it will blend in with the black sunroof, but every now and again i see a while roof with sunroof pic and it looks really good.

Currently torn between every colour they do apart from white, red and yellow as i'm not keen on them. Does anyone have any opinions, or even better pics of these colours with a sunroof also?

Cheers.

Blue with black roof imo!
I'd drop the chilli pack and just pick a few options excluding aircon if buying the sunroof. I think they should give choice of roof or air on the packs.

I've always been very fond of MINIs that go for the body-coloured roof.

Pepper White, Black roof looks lovely and best of all it's free so you can use the money you'd have spent on metallic paint and order some other goodies

IMO if there is a sunroof then it has to be a black roof, end of story.

But seeing as you can get sunroof graphics now, and could actually even just have a block of white colour added to it then you could do this to hide the sunroof and then have a white roof

So if it was a black roof, PW/B is number one for me, then CR/B a close second

No way! Having no Chilli Pack won't do anything for the resale value...

And have a look at pics before you rule out a white roof with sunroof - I had that on my last S, and it didn't detract at all

Best thing you can do is to have a look at plenty of pics and see what floats your boat

Tough, he might not like them but you ask for an opinion and you get it

But agree on yellow, its an awful colour

Thanks guys, right now i'm edging towards the lightening blue with a black roof. There was one parked in my work carpark today and it looked awesome.

Wanted to stay away from yellow as i think it looks pretty aweful, Red looks really nice but just doesnt suit me. Not really considered white but just checked out a few pics and it looks ok. I think its probably one of those colours you have to see in person.

I actually really like that, and with it on coilovers and the JCW wheels, think it looks great
