I think it is still not available at the moment. This was a testing car at MINI.
Lets wait some month. I think you can order this starting Sep. 03.
I have no nearer infos re. MFSW or if it is also available for Cooper.
Thanks for posting the photos. It's nice to see styling experiments. For my 2p worth; I'm not so thrilled with that wheel. I think the spokes look more like utility poles. They are too thick and lack grace. What are they going to do, put a little air bag into each spoke?
The 3 spoke wheel is OK. The only problem with 3 spoke wheels is that you can't comfortably rest both hands at the bottom when 'cruising'.
I, in a way, prefer the looks of the current 2 spoke wheel because it has the charm of the classic car and compliments the interior design extremely wheel. The new 2 spoke "Sport" wheel being offered in the MCS (With the thick thumbs) looks and feels fantastic.
It looks like the new 3 spoke wheel will be made standard fare in the 2004 model year.
Oh I also like the center MINI clear plastic hub in the current wheel. They just need to improve the quality of the plastics.
