Anyone sick of these now?

Just picked up my MCS and handed over the keys to my old cooper *sniff*. But I'm finding it hard to describe just how good the new one is. The car sounds beautiful, especially the exhaust popping. It feels somewhat heavier than my cooper but the power boost more than makes up for it. I'm working late tonight so I've been asking people if they want to go down to Tescos, just for an excuse to drive :).

The run-in period is going to kill me, but I still managed to get the back end out on a roundabout (not intentionally, wasn't expecting it to pick up as quickly as it did).

I'll get some pics up tomorrow evening...

Enjoy the car!! Like you I own a Cooper and am now waiting for my S - not getting it til next year!!! Going for an 05 plate. Luckily a friend works for Mini and I get to drive his S from time to time as I don't know how I am going to wait. Already boring people discussing what options to have!!! Currently going for HB/W, chilli pack, auto air con, full leather, Boost and CD, visibility package - think thats it!!! Anything else anyone thinks I ought to add????

have fun driving!!!

Get the chrome line interior, it makes the inside look a million times better. And this is coming from someone who really hates chrome :).

Add body color and chrome

It looks truly amazing - add half leather and half cloth - otherwise known as LOTH or CLEATHER - and it looks BRILLANT!

I have it with Alloy Patina; it looks very nice indeed. There was a car at the NEC Motor Show with that spec (which is the reason I changed) and if you search the forums for some "chrome line interior" threads you should be able to find pics.

Thanks for the suggestions - will check out the piccies to look for a chrome line interior. Keep thinking abut the HK stereo but don't know what to do! There are too many options!!! Could deliberate over them all for hours! Have changed the colour once since I placed the order! Gone from DS/W to HB/W - no doubt this will change again! Not going for CR/W as this is what my Cooper is at the moment! Just want it to arrive!!!!

That looks almost like my mini will be :) apart from I’ve gone with a white roof and strips…. Looks great and makes me look forward to mine even more.


Cheers for the pics :)

If only. I'm only 23 and the insurance on the MCS is bad enough already. Might do it next year ;).
