Thanks! I’m beyond excited. I’ve driven average bangers my entire life and am two days off collecting my first ever cooper. The Dream 🙌🙌🙌🙌

Stripes 🤦‍♂️

 

Only kidding. I had stripes on my previous 2 and spot lights on my last one.

 

As Lewis says, photos are a must 👍🏻

If everyone had the same taste it would get pretty boring and we’d all be driving cars that looked and sounded exactly the same. So I wouldn’t worry if your choice is popular or not, as long as you like it and you are happy with it !

 

I’m known as a bit of a wind up merchant too by the way ! 🙄😂

I had bonnet stripes on both of my hatches and think they really suited it.

Some colours suit bonnet stripes and some don't but it's all down to personal taste! I've always added John Cooper signatures to mine to give them a bit more of a feature.

 

I'm sure whatever you've gone for it'll look great 😁

Great thing with stripes, if you don’t like them, they just peel right back off. 😃

Well I’ve been looking for two days at all the minis on the roads and I’m definitely keen on stripes on 3 door hatches. They just make me smile. They do tend to look more classy and stylish though without which I also appreciate. 2 sleeps and I can post pics hehe! And thanks for the heads up kettlepot i’ll watch out for u 😂😂

You've kept us in the dark regarding the colour and spec of the car so I'm looking forward to seeing it, too!

Just before I drove home!! Super exciting. No one has waved back at me yet lol. Ah well! (Apart from a sales rep from mini who was driving on the other side of the road with another customer.. doesn’t count!)

Very nice! And the stripes look smart matching the roof and mirror caps 😁

 

I trust you enjoyed your drive home!

LOVED it! I’ve never owned more than a 1.2 so 1.5 with turbo is amazing to me... And the rest. Felt so proud parking up. Cheers! What’s your mini? Or is it all on your profile?

I know what you mean. I've had one for a couple of days and they are quite nippy! They are really nice to drive, too.. No wonder you're loving it! 😁

 

Mine's a 2013 Roadster John Cooper Works.

There is a little bit on my profile but it's mainly detailed on my build thread. 

 

Are you planning any modifications for your new car then, or just keeping it standard? I know that modding isn't for everyone ☺️

Very nice!! I’m thinking rally lights maybe (not sure this is modding it) but that would be going full on cheesy Italian job then 😬... my car makes me so happy. Finally!!!! I’m a Mini Cooper owner!

Ps not that I was aiming for the Italian job with this car, I only spotted the similarities this morning!
