Black roof, black bonnet stripes!
That was my second choice amongst Clubman colors.
Isn't Chocolate at least $500 U.S. more?

I do like pepper white, almost ordered one.. .But having a Hot Chocolate i got to say it was the best choice.. .

It really stands out in the crowd... Polished and sitting in the sun it is a stunning colour...!!!!

An amazing amount of people asking me about the clubman and the colour...

Glad to hear that you are happy with your choice! Thats the only problem with Pepper White - you don't see the same level of shine no matter how much polish you apply!

Therefore less effort needed Joy. Metalics are great but this flat white shrugs off everything

Well, yes but you do still have to polish them! Still, no claying or any of that!

Traded my PW/B MC for my BRG/BLK Clubman, and as much as I do love the rich depth of the BRG - I now realize how my PW could be dirty and still not really show it. That I do miss - I'd really forgotten the fact that dark colors do show the dirt more.

Just wondering... What did you ever decide on, the Hot Chocolate (roof / interior?) or the PW?

i remember when Pepper white came out at first many people were unsure of it - saying may be poor residuals. but i think it is one of the more popular colours now

First time i saw it i loooved it and now on my 3rd pepper white mini -

Nice to be different so id say go brown - looks classy IMO

hi , i live and work not far from the mini plant in cowley, today while i was at work sat in my tractor near one of our very busy bypass carriage way's , i get to see dozen's of transporter lorrys moving mini's to the docks, and the one that really caught my eye today was a brown and silver clubman , loved it. i was never a fan of the mini until i saw a brown and silver one drove pass our farm before they where available to buy. that changed my opinion of them. i now, since september 2008 own one , but could not get my wife to go for the clubman. so we ended up with a red and white copper d .and love it. any way brown gets my vote . cheers

I had never ever seen a live clubman when I ordered " Gingerbread Man" with the beigh interior, steering wheel, shifter boot and e brake boot. After having 2 chilli red Cooper S the hot
choc was a change. Suprisingly it still looks acceptable when its dirty. Love the interior after
having black leather in the other Ss. Its light and airy but it shows the coffee spills. You pays
your money and you makes your choice, not a problem as driving a Mini of any color is its
ultimate reward.

I would not buy any colour just because it was limited to a model.

Remember electric blue and hyper blue, both were limited to the cooper S until they put it across the range.

TBH I think the Mini colours are very poor

Some are ok, but they do need to do some work on them. Personally I loved the look of solid gold with a black roof. I think it looks great... BRG is nice too. However, they should bring out a really different colour... BEP was another nice colour which isn't done anymore (can't see why I regularly see them).

Hot chocolate was a good addition - makes it nice and different...
