Do I or don't I?

Hi guys (and girls!)

Made myself an account on here due to me facing a dilemma!

I've recently seen a 2016 MINI Cooper SD for sale which is specced perfectly...except...
The car is electric blue with a white roof & mirror caps - Which I'm REALLY unsure about...

Is the electric blue a girly colour on its own? Made worse with the white details? Would really appreciate some feedback on this!

Also, if I go for it, is it possible to have the roof/mirror colour changed by MINI?

Thanks!

Electric Blue is a cool colour and my mate had a Cooper S in this colour and he's very much a boy! One question, why pay over the odds for MINI to paint the roof and mirror caps when you can get this done at a good independent paint shop for a hell of a lot cheaper. Don't be fooled by anything being professionally painted at BMW/ MINI. They took over 10 weeks to paint my Clubman (under warranty) and I rejected it 3 times due to poor finish and broken trim held on by silicon!

Love the electric blue. Not girlie at all.

If you don't like the roof get it wrapped. You can probably have any colour or design. A classic union jack, perhaps??

PS i know it should be a union flag, but that sounds so wrong!!
