Whoooa thats bright! :D

You'd definately not forget where you parked it in a carpark! :p

I think it looks good actually - lets put it this way what other car could get away with being black and having a bright yellow roof? ;)

Yeah! I know what you mean, I had similar colours on an old cooper years ago. Pretty cool I reckon!

Just out of interest and nosiness :p where did you get the respray and how much did it cost?
It was done by the dealer. WOOD of Salisbury. Cost was (cant get my pound sign to work!!) 700+ Mainly for the rear spoiler and ariel to be removed and stuff. The colour is a printing tone called Pantone Yellow. Matches my companys Logo etc. It is a lovely finish as are the bonnet stripes, they done a cracking job. My brother is the Parts manager there and really looked after me (and they only quoted me 350 so they had to stump up the difference as they quoted me in writing!)

Altogether a real head turner!

Wow, that is different! Oddly enough, I think it works and it certainly is distinctive. I can imagine a MINI race car painted like that.

First impression....what... nooo!!

But when you spend about 10 + seconds looking it actually looks great, different I'll give you that, but good because of it!

Just avoid the amber street lights, they might make the yellow look an odd orange!!

Enjoy
