I have got a Mini one in Red. I was just wondering what it would look like if the balck plastic which runs along the edges on the car(I.e wheel arches,under sills etc) would look like if they were colour coded.Has anyone had this done and if so do you have any idea how much it would cost?? If no one has had this done could some of you clever people would have paintshop be able to just give me an idea before I commmit to anything I might regret! Thanks in advance

Look at Hammann's website, they have a silver Cooper with body coloured arch's etc. I also think Mini Mania have a body kitted red one. Go to www then links (at the top) and you'll find a page with all the web address's on them. Look at the bottom section and you'll find them.

Do you switch on your fog lights at night, even though there is no fog?

One of the reasons why I choose black was because it all blended in together! matching body and bumpers.
That was my idea to, cheaper than getting it painted. Plus I can still get it painted but I can wait a bit longer. £600 isn't as much as I thought it would be. I'll be considering it.
