Hi.

I am brand new to this forum.

I AM going to get a new MCS and have been going through all the mind blowing decisions re spec etc.

I have narrowed down my colour to Dark Silver and am now driving myself mad as to whether it should have a black roof or a white roof.

Only thing is........the white wing mirrors would need to be changed if I went for the white roof etc etc....

Please help me Black or White.:puzzled:

Please don't confuse me with anything else or I swear I wont be able to go to sleep.

Cheers

Getting the mirror caps changed is a simple thing.
Just ask the dealership for a spare set in the colour you require, it won't break the bank!
I'm sure you could persuade them to fit for free too! ;)

BTW Welcome to M2 :D

I agree with Bo2007 - for me, the black roof seems to suit the dark silver colour better. You could always do what I have done and go for dark silver with black roof and chrome mirror caps!:D

Wow...this forum is great....quick and meaningful replys. Yup Dark Silver and black is beginning to take my fancy.

Thanks for the welcome and good advice.

No doubt I will be asking more questions in the future. :biggrin:

I'd go for a white roof and bonnet stripes for a dark silver MINI - I don't think the black bonnet stripes are as noticeable as white stripes on a dark silver car.

I totally agree with MINI&MERCGUY above, white is more classic, more MINI and the bonnet stripes will simply show off better.
I vote DS/W because that is :cool: :cool: :cool: :)

Welcome to the forum ;)

I was in the same situation as you a couple of months ago...but when I saw black roof on the dark silver I just couldn't say no. It's most defo the best combo (well that's just my opinion).

don't mention it,

it's me on the very left, others are mates of mine checking the car out ;), it'll be the same situation with yours too :biggrin:

I had not many choices, when I was about to order the MCS, there was only a LB/W, this DS/W with flame spoke wheels and a DS/B in the pool. So decided that the LB/W would be too much "out there" for me and I liked the flame spoke wheels so took the other one.

DS/B looks very elite, cool and also somewhat dignified, but also seems like to keep things in a low profile a little bit with the all dark color combination (For my taste of course).
DS/W looks also cool and dignified, but a little bit more out there (not as much as the LB ;) ) The car looks like it has a white shirt on with a cool dark grey jean :) because of the white roof and etc.

Hard choice, but the pictures don't to do the thing, you have to see both in flesh and blood.
