I really thought more people would have gotten pictures from the Detroit Show.

We have seen pictures of the EB, and DS but there are very few good/clear pictures of the other colors.

I have not been able to see a MINI in person, and can only see it in pictures. Any pictures would be great. I am sure others are in the same situation.

I have a low number at the dealer I put my deposit down with and I need pictures to help to pick the color I want.

Please post your pictures and the link, so we can all share them.

Thanks All,

I took my digital camera to the LA Auto Show with good intentions of taking some pictures. The MINI display area was jammed into a fairly small floor space and it was mobbed with people, making taking any unobstructed shots impossible. Also, the lighting was such that pictures wouldn't do the "real" colors justice.

I saw Dark Silver (black), Chili Red (white), Liquid Yellow (black), Indie Blue (white) and Pure Silver (black) at the LA show and British Racing Green (white) at a concours event last June. I'm leaning toward Dark Silver (white).

Hopefully, the dealers will get a full assortment of colors on their demo cars, so we can see them in the flesh before finalizing our choices.

New Auto Show pictures uploaded.

I have just uploaded a few pictures I took while at the Auto Show on Sunday. Please take a look at my personal gallery (ahiltunen) on page 1. I especially like the one of me sitting in a Gold MINI. I really like the matching interior.

I've just got back off the floor over that particular shot of the Pure Silver S. That one should get pride of place in the "Cooper S" Gallery section. Excellent. Thanks.

I know I've said this before, but that Pure Silver S would not look out of place with an Aston Martin badge on it.....

I havn't changed my mind on the colour of my S for over a week now, and the more photo's I see the more i'm convinced it's the one for me......gorgeous.

Thanks again ahiltunen

It's not much, but it's one more, even if it's Electric Blue, again.......
Somewhere between EB and IB would have been good OnlyS4me.......one's too light, the other too dark. Can only please some of the people I guess.......:rolleyes:

The colour is a bit fishy to get on a photo. The colour in the flesh is a lot darker than I've expected.
I'd made a picture with no flasher to show the colour a bit more:

BTW, take a good look in the MINI Cooper S gallery (under personal gallery, not the one of the site's gallery called the same name), there are really good pictures to find of the NAIAS!! (by MiniMoke, I guess).

Yes, that does look darker there. Hmmm.... My Dealer is getting a EB S demo (probably end up DS if recent experience with my dealer is anything to go by :rolleyes: )
in April....

Thanks for the insider on more photo's, I'll go take a look

cheers

Bugger!! my PC opens them as thumbnails. I've had this trouble with my own Gallery. The pictures have been uploaded with capital JPG.... they need to be renamed as lower case jpg for them to work.

Anyone else experiencing this problem ?

If you look at that plastic spoiler edge on the bottom and compair it with the high res Dark Silver., you will see that the DS car has run over it's owner...or somthing.
