Unhappy Choice between BRG/W and JB/W

I just can't make a decision between BRG/W and JB/W for the Cooper I am going to order. Can anyone post some nice photos for the two combination? Thanks in advance.

well..... in a lot of lights the BRG looks black, but when the sun hits it it suddenly looks lovely and green ... so you might as well get BRG - best of both worlds! Jet Black is going to be... black... all the time!

BRG/White is best. Keeping the wheels clean is a chore, but worth it.

Talking JB/W

I've gone for black and white. I just love the combination.

Roll on Nov 18.

BRG is my preference, although I went with IB because I thought everyone would be getting BRG As it turns out both colors are realitively rare and look fabulous.

Hmmm. I have the BRG/W myself. Actually when all is said and done, I think I would have liked a lighter color. The green looks dirty quickly, and yes, my wheels do indeed get that dusty look in quite a hurry.

Attached is a picture of me driving my car home the first day.

How about white alloy wheels? I assume that they will be easily covered by the dust from brake pads. What do you think?

Yes, my white alloy wheels do get the Brake Dust on them (even after 6000 miles). Sort of the signal that it is time to wash the Mini!

As for the wheels getting dirty, BRG doesn't really matter what color your MINI is. I will agree that any dark colored car picks up and shows dirty very quickly, but when it is clean and polished, nothing around beats looks of BRG/W on a bright sunny day.

Besides, the only thing better than cleanning and polishing you BRG/W MINI, is motoring in your freshly polished BRG/W MINI.
