Seeing as how you have all been so helpful with some of my previous questions, I have decided to push my luck and trouble you for your opinions once more.

When I started looking at purchasing a MINI my heart was set on an INDI blue one with white roof/bonnet stripes. To my dismay MINI no longer uses Indi blue and has replaced it with Hyper Blue.

I figured that this would be ok, and I could settle for a slightly lighter shade of blue coupled with the white roof and bonnet stripes...until someone mentioned that the color combination looked rather "smurfish" and they would go with a different color combo.

Being the MINI connoisseurs that you all are, I would really appreciate some insight into my fashion dilemma.

THANKS! :confused:

Go for the Hyper Blue it will get loads of attention and you will love it!

HB/W is one of the few color schemes that I actually think looks right with bonnet stripes (CR/W and DS/B being the others).
But it's *your* car, get what you want.

I personally had my choice made when I first started playing with the build your own tool at the mini site (BRG/B just seemed to fit).

Go with whatever pleases your little heart!

I think I am going with Orange Kosei rims for my Orange cabriol. See this thread: (sorry, my popup blocker won't let me add this as a hyper link) http://www.mini2.com/forum/showthread.php?t=76360

The consensus is, which I agree with 100%, if you like it, you're the one making the car payments, so go for it.

Just post pictures when you do :)

You should be getting a color combo which pleases you ... not someone else.

You can find galleries containing pictures of almost any color combo ...

But just remember, the odds of finding 2 MINIs the same are one in 50,000! And that goes up the more, ah, outrageous youmake your car (NOT that one could make a MINI outrageous.)

It doesn't look smurfish. And besides, its so close to IB, unless you're a MINI geek, you wouldn't notice the difference anyway. Check my gallery for a few pictures.

If you want to be derogatory about the colors, you can find something wrong with every combination, you can also ignore whatever people say about it just as easily, since almost everyone loves their color choice.
