Was going to get them, but decided not to because I thought they would peel easy and be a waste of £50.

Now I'm thinking of getting some!!! :)

Are there better ones than the official MINI ones?

Hey Dodger, those stripes look cool. what do they say on them? I think I may be changing my mind about getting stripes. Of course, by the time we actually get to order a car here in the US, we'll be suffering from nervous exhaustion because we've changed our minds so much - Denise K.:D

Hi Denise

The writing says John Cooper and is in silver. They were done by an autographic company that we know and only cost us £35 :D :D :D

Dodger, yours look nice, but the factory ones with that stupid white trim makes them look ugly IMHO.

Daniel--whos not getting the stripes form MINI:)

No stripes for me, just not my thing.

But the Cooper S (pure silver?) with the black stripes at the Detroit show (I think) looked really good.

I think they look great, but I'm going to wait until delivery and see the car "naked" first before I fit them (dealer fit anyway).

This will be my car.......maybe even with WHITE S-spokes.....got about 8 weeks before my build sheet goes north.......:)

My thanks again to Marcel for modifying this image to match my spec for me......:)

I like the bonnet stripes:p Has anyone seen or photo shopped a picture of a dark silver/black w/bonnet stripes? That would be way:cool: I've seen the silver/black but the contrast is going to look different on the dark.

Will have racing stripes painted on the car. BIG ones...probably one large stripe on the center of the car covering the supercharger duct and 3/4" stripes lateral to the large stripe. The stripes will be a bright yellow if I get a black car or black if I get a yellow car. Either way I will get 17" wheels painted yellow inside of the bright shiny rim edges. The Killerbee logos will grace the car as they have on my Miata.:cool: :D
ps anyone with photoshop...if you could make a mock up of these two cars (without the logos)..I would greatly appreciate their efforts. Thanks
