So thats teal, bronze/orange/gold, peper white and anthracite, I may just have to paint each caliper a different colour

I'm at a real loss with the colour but I think the good side of that is that whichever one I go for I'll be happy. I just hope adding a colour to the car doesnt detract from the OEM+ I've got going now.

I thought long and hard about the brakes and started painting them last night. It's safe to say that I'd have been better of stabbing a pin in a colour chart than picking the colour I did. Brakes now going to be sandblasted and done in pepper white. with black logos.

I've always thought the PVC colour line in the Gen 2 Minis was pretty awful, so over the last 2 days I've re trimmed everything. Everything has been done in genuine alcantara to create the OEM+ feel I wanted.

Really want the badges taken out next but the cost vs looks is a bit high when I want things like moaaar noise and power.

Cheers Ben, it's the orranje performance one.

I've always been a fan of mono coloured Minis which is half the reason I'm so happy with this one.

That bung looks really nice! Is it possible to get it without having to order a GP-wing?

I'm not sure, If you ask the guys nicely they might do something for you. Shoot an email over to them or PM. I will have a word tomorrow to see if they will do anything too
