Hi, i have £100 worth of dealer vouchers left over from when BMW couldn't offer me a courtesy car because i was under 21.

I know that 100 quid wont buy me much but i might aswell use it and i dont mind adding to it for the right thing. My Mini is a 55 reg pure silver one with a MCS front bumper and black/grey union jack roof

I havent really got anything in mind so lets hear your suggestions!

wouldn't know!! just a suggestion

You could prob get the intercooler cover, the aero bonnet grills, centre caps - depends if you want something big or small

To get any decent you will prob have to add to

ok i took a quick picture, luckily i cleaned my car yesterday! I'm thinking of changing the wheels but dont want to buy them new so i can rule wheels out. I've recently fit an induction kit and a 3 spoke steering wheel. i'd like a strut brace, anyone know how much they cost? or maybe an arm rest

what else would look good?

thought about a fuel flap before but i quite like the more streamlined look you get from the standard one. I quite like the design of the rubber mats but i think the interior feels better with carpet ones. mine dont seem to get too dirty either

Fair enough - after seeing the buildup on mine I wouldn't be without them. Have you considered black bonnet stripes? You have the union jack and mirrors!

must admit I don;t like them much either which is why mine is still the standard flap - but i know most others do seem to like them :eek:

how long do the vouchers last? Might be worth keeping them for when things like brake pads need changing.

Are they dealer vouchers or accessory ones - the latter are usually given away. This means you can only spend them on accessories and not maintenance.

how about mirror caps, differnt aerial??
He already has glossy black ones, and I assume that they are there to stay - would have been an accessory anyway and match the roof. Can you get different aerials from the dealer?:confused:

I can use the vouchers on anything but i'm planning to upgrade as things need replacing, so next time i change brakes i will get somthing from a tuning shop rather than Mini. Would rather buy somthing i wouldnt buy otherwise

As M.O.S said, the mirror caps are already an upgrade, I got them free with my car because she had them under her desk and i like how they match the black of the A pillar covers and tinted rear windows

Body coloured gear knob?
Having seen your mat it looks muddy!

No, the gearstick would look nice, and you can also have the chrome line interior fitted as an accessory now - see how much that would cost - that would look good with your interior. You have a nice interior already, so its hard to improve it.

Do you smoke? Try getting one of those blanker things for the lighter socket, bin/ebay the ashtray and bobs your uncle!

If I'd have thought, I'd have had the smoker pack and sold it on ebay rather than not having it from the factory - when I got mine, it was a nco for an ashtray and lighter!

Chrome line interior, and see if you can talk them into fitting it for free, maybe in a quiet period or something.
Would look really nice with your dark dash and chrono pack.
