This is my first post on the Forum. MCCS ordered with delivery date on 1 January (if they open the showroom). Hyper blue with blue hood set in stone for me, but what about bonnet stripes. Black or white or none at all. Is it too "boy racer". Does anyone have any pictures to assist this mammoth decision? If I go for a set of stripes how easy is it for them to be removed if they look dodgy?

Also deliberating between auto and manual a/c. Is there any great difference and is it worth paying for the upgrade?

Welcome to MINI2.:)

The car is BRG,but it will give you some indication what the stripes would look like.:)I dont think there hard to remove tbh.!

Its horses for coarses really climate I find is a tad noisy so I opted for manual aircon and saved over £200 in the process.:)

You can get magnetic stripes, so you can put them on on the days you feel like having them on. ;)

Don't really fancy the idea of magnetic stripes - destined to get nicked. Was thinking how much damage "proper" stripes would do to the paintwork on the bonnet if removed at a later date.

The magnetic stripes are so thin that no one would notice, they would just think they are stick-on stripes. And who in their right mind would try and steal stick-on stripes? :D

I agree, stripes just say "MINI" to me. But I also worry about the effects on the paint underneath over the long term. Magnetic stripes sound intriguing.

By the way dinger, that's the first green on green I've seen and it looks fantastic.

I love the stripes. I think it gives my Cooper more of a lift. I'd try and post an image but not sure how to show a thumbnaile image of my Cooper

I have a hyper blue tin top with bonnet strips, check out my gallery and make your own mind up.

Personally I think it finishes off the hyper blue. Everybody who has seen the car so far has said it looks awesome.

There should be a small pic of stripes on Cool Blue in the Convertible brochure. Looks great :D If you're going for the racey look then go with the stripes :D
