Hey,
I was curious if one is tied to a particular 16" alloy when you get the sport package on the cooper. By default one can get silver/white 5-star spokes when they get the sport package. I much prefer the x-lites in white. On the mini configurator the 16" 5-star and 16" x-lites are both the same price as an aftermarket item. I was wondering if it would be possible to order my cooper with the 16" x-lites with no (little) price change. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Thanks,
Patrick

I really wanted X-lites but In the UK they are reserved for the MCS and my dealer couldn't/wouldn't order them for an MC. He said he couldn't break up the option packs - bit inflexible and annoying I thought :rolleyes: I took the 5-stars & then had to pay the accessory price of approx £90 per wheel for mine & they swapped the tyres.

Anybody want a set of (dirty) silver 5 stars? was thinking of making one into a nice glass topped coffee table but other half said no! :p

Don't think you'll have any luck from a factory equipped standpoint - it will be the 5-spoke R83's only on the Sport package.
The dealer may do a swap for you, but likely only if it will increase their profit substantially.
I too prefer the X-lites over the 5-spokes, and they are also lighter.
I bought a brand new set of X-lites for my Cooper off ebay.
Good luck :)
