I think I really like the new sunrise interior but I have a few questions, some things aren't readily apparent.

What part of the interior is leather? It seems to me that the whole rear seat is not leather except the headrests.

How much of the interior is blue? I see the inner doors and rear panels are. How does this match in with the top of the (black? or dark gray?) dash or the windshield pillars?

How does the sunrise orange look with Hot orange? Do they coordinate pretty well or do they sort of clash? What about the blue of the sunrise interior vs. the convertable top blue?

Sorry for all the questions!

Erik,

Sorry I can't answer all of the questions, but on on the question of looks I can say that the sunrise interior works beautifully with the Hot Orange and blue roof.

I got to test drive an S cabrio at our dealer (Mini of Towson) that had the sunrise interior in the hot orange/blue trim. The car was absolutely stunning - it seemed as if the interior was designed with the Orange /Blue top in mind.

I didn't look too closely at the leather/cloth mix as our order is for Cool Blue w/ dark blue leather interior. I assume you've checked out the cabrio photos in the MINI2 gallery. This one is a good shot of the interior w/ hot orange:



It all comes down to personal taste, but I think you'd find the interior a great match if you go Hot Orange. :)

That's pretty much it. The bolsters on the front seats are leather and small bits of the rear seat area like the headrests and the seatbelt buckle surround.

The door panels and rear side panels are a dark blue. They mesh in well with the black dash top and black a-pillar trim because it's such a deep dark blue. I almost didn't notice it was blue at first because it's so dark.

How does the sunrise orange look with Hot orange? Do they coordinate pretty well or do they sort of clash? What about the blue of the sunrise interior vs. the convertable top blue?
The sunrise orange is the perfect complement to hot orange. They are very close if not identical and it's clear that the sunrise orange cloth was made with the purpose of matching the hot orange. The blue of the interior is probably a bit darker than the top blue but it works very well. They certainly don't clash.

i have had my 05 hot orange cooper with this interior for a month, it is so perfect, people when they see it are amazed, i didnt like the blue top at first, but wouldnt change it. i drive around houston texas, where it is still mid 90's everyday, EVERYONE looks and if close enough, has something to say about the car. i drive to work with the top down at 5:00 in the morning, the only time the top is on is at work, garaged at night, ZERO problems with this car!!!!!
