Ok, OnlyS4me, time to make good the fact that you have defected to the Type-R.

I havn't seen any Cooper-S with a White Roof/ Yellow body work as yet. You did a photoshop job with the Black roof, any chance of one with a white roof/mirrors ?

Thanks........:)

Basil, does this mean that you're considering Yellow/White 'S'?

My 'S' order is currently Yellow/White, but also leaning to Black/White for a number of reasons.

I thought you were going for Red or Green or Velvet red? VR is coming out apparently.

Is this the colour you mean :confused: :confused: ;)
Nope, not that one (lovely though it is), the previous model I think. The only yellow MINI picture I have seen on these boards that come close to the correct colour, are the ones Garry posted. Even BMW's own press photo's show the yellow as a canary yellow. I stood next to the first yellow MINI i've seen in the flesh last friday, and it's much paler than I thought it would be, and looked just like the old M3/ 3 series yellow.

Thats cos it is exactly the same colour... same yellow as last 3 series colour.

It is a nicely halfway between too pale, like Beetle yellow and too bright, like Leon Cupra/Fiat Punto sporting yellow.

eltel, yes it does. I had changed my mind EVERY day on the colour until I saw "that car" at Brisbane BMW last friday. It looks absolutely fantastic in the flesh. And I still like it after four days. Thats a record, and I'll take it as a sign.

Tempted with VR.....again, I need to see these colours in the flesh, and I doubt if they'll be much chance of that before I have to fill out my build sheet.

Mellow Yellow

All,

I test drove a yellow / white cooper at the weekend, with 17" alloys. A bit to pale for me, I want one that shouts YYYYEEEEELLLLLLLOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!

Black and White + White Wheels and Checkers on the roof is winning a the momment.

I'll try to get to the dealer to get a couple of photos of it for you. Will not be today 'cause weather and light is crap.

Any particular angle prefered?

But the Type R that floats around Chesham, Bucks looks like it got beat with the UGLY stick from a very early age!!!!

Looks like a souped up hi tec VAN.

Here you go, Basil....;)
Thank you very much M. Looks really good in that combo.

And i'm really sorry, but I didn't understand your last post. Could I humbly ask you to re-phrase it. Thanks.

PS. I have to admit, the side view and rear three quarter view of the Type-R looks really really good....... right colour choice for that shape too M.

cheers

Is that a different yellow that's on the Cooper, it seems darker. Looks really good, especially with the bonnet stripes and the S Spokes...hum

I don't think so LMB, just that the yellow always seem's to look like canary yellow in pictures. And canary yellow it most certainly isn't.

It's Tuesday today, and I saw my first yellow Cooper in the flesh last friday, and Yellow/White is still #1 colour preference. A Basil record.

The honda is just too clinical for my current tastes, but I have to admit it's growing on me.

Glad to hear your still keen on the S.

:)

I think Yellow/White is an excellent colour for the S. The car deserves to be noticed and it certainly will be with that colour combo. I found the yellow a bit light for my tastes at first but it is slowly growing on me. Especially as I have yet to have seen that combo on the road yet. So far it is has been Silver, Silver, Silver...and for that reason I am leaning away from Dark Silver. Lets face it the majority of Cooper S's will be this colour.

I would get BRG/White again as the car looks great, but that would be boring. I have to choose something different...so hard to decide. It was easy first time round because I knew I wanted BRG/White.

So far Yellow/White with white Stripe (Black Borders) and a set of S Spokes is looking good. It would just suit the Cooper S to a T.

I wish the yellow in the flesh looked like the picture. The general consensus has been that the yellow is too pale. I hope MINIUSA has heard us...MAKE A VIVID YELLOW FOR THE 'S' MODEL! But make your decision soon so we can plan before we order.

If that was the case, I'd dump it myself. I like it because it's the Dakar yellow from the M3......
