Dark Silver Cooper graphite, White roof - white or chrome caps!?

After wanting a Mini for years I have finally put a deposit down on a Mini Cooper Graphite ! It's a demo car, so although a March 2010 plate, I can't pick it up until after June 1st. In the meantime it is having its black roof sprayed white; and I am trying to decide whether to have white or chrome caps...

Just wondered if anyone out there has a dark silver mini with a white roof that can help me decide whether to get white or chrome caps? Also does anyone have any pictures - have been searching the web to help me decide but not come across anything as of yet! Thoughts!?!

I'd go with white..... But that's because that's what I've got. I think chrome look better with body colour roof..... but again, that's just me. Everyone is different. Thought about "Black Jack" caps?

Aaaaaalthough, I guess if it's a graphite, it will have a fair bit more chrome around the grille..... Oh well, decisions, decisions.

Go for chrome. Very similar to the Park Lane Cooper's that were out not so long ago ... although they had silver roof's as opposed to white. But it's your choice. That's the fun of MINI's.
