Hello!
Although i have not picked it up yet due to "insurance and tax" issues i am getting a red mini one. Its a 51 plate but only done 50k. What would you recommend for the exterior? Any decals,stripes etc.
I have thought about union jack mirror caps or black and white chequered caps.
Any thoughts?:confused:
Ryan :cool:

The car is here by the way: Mini ONE 1.6 3Dr from Grantham Car Shop

White side indicators & chrome exhaust trim is where I'd start.
And replace those matt black mirror caps, maybe with some chrome ones?

Looks nice btw, especially with the chrome inserts on the bumpers not very common on a one.

mirror caps, chrome side repeaters, chrome front grille, makes a difference quite a difference in fact for so little done.

Horses for courses. I don't like the shark gill or the flame ones. ;)

Even just putting the clear lenses into black holders works surprisingly well.

WOW memories of my car when i first got it



I have done the following things:

Clear side indicator lenses - ebay
Aux light chrome surrounds - pressie
Silvatech chrome front indicator bulbs to take the orange fried egg look away from the front - ebay
Colour coded mirior caps - m2 classifieds
Chrome Grille - ebay
Chrome Boothandle - ebay
Cooper Exhaust Trim - mate
Cooper rear spoiler - mate
Cooper Lower Bumper Grille Mesh - mate
Cooper S Sills - mate
17" S Spokes - m2 classifieds

you dont have to spent a fortune to get it looking good

IM thinking it needs something on the roof and maybe some bonnet stripes but i cant quite make my mind up! i like the all red look
