Looking at the picks from Essen it looks like the Cooper S alum fuel filler might retrofit on a Cooper. I'd have one as I think they look better than the normal painted flap.
You're not the first to think so. But some future Cooper S owners might want get rid of it and get the painted cover as fitted to non-S MINIs instead. Unhappiness with it being fake.R1 said:Looking at the picks from Essen it looks like the Cooper S alum fuel filler might retrofit on a Cooper.

ha ha....your right.....it's probably the most menial debate on the whole site...... but there is a little holder built into the cover to stick it.... (the cap that is)...KarmanS said:unless there's a holder for the cap like those found on BMWs, Benzs and other makes, one maybe prone to either leaving he cap on the roof, on the ground, or somewhere else while filling up. Until there is a bracket or some mechanism to hold the cap during fill ups, I guess a plastic cable would do just fine. besides, does it really matter that much?
Not me. You've caught me in a mistake about saying Dark Silver for the roof. It is fundamental, in my mind, that a classic Mini and a new MINI have a contrasting roof color. And, living in a hot climate, I don't believe a word of it about white roofs keeping a car cooler when parked, but they sure do look better.Basil said:
OK, OK, cant resist!!!........is someone getting Dark Silver WITHOUT the white roof ?......
Idle hands the devils work make.......lol
