Default Salt and Pepper.

OH I want to START!!!
I drive a Pepper White MCSa.
I have had my car since June...I got her as a replacement for my Pure Silver/Black MC that I had been driving since 2002 (I was one of the OG's baby!!)

So far my car is completely stock, aside from my wheels which are 17" Mille Miglia HT3's in gunmetal, which will eventually be replaced by a new set of shoes TBD.

My car already has about 12K miles on her...my boyfriend Rick Awesome (aka Sam) and I drove from Maryland to California in September and really racked up the mileage as well as taking numerous other roadtrips. She has proved to be a VERY reliable steed.

The next planned modification is springs (I know Sam will be happy to read that) since it's in my price range...and then a bunch of cosmetics will ensue.

Here are some shots of my baby...enjoy.

First day when I owned 2 MINIs at the same time. They were friends...

With aftermarket wheels...they were the same ones that I had on my Coop for nearly 2 years.

I love gunmetal wheels on pepper white car. When you do replace them are you going to stick with the gunmetal color?

I'm not really 100% sure. Right now I feel like the gunmetal looks great...and I also think alot of it has to do with the fact that I have so much black trim on my car still...which will not be forever...

So I guess I'm still up in the air about it. I will make my final decisions after all the painting is done.

Are you color-coating everything pepper white? How about completley de-chromed, all color coated, dark tint with some soild black wheels. Oh that would look so good.

Ooh, or you could go with solid red wheels, and maybe some sort of graphics along the side, a'la the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

RSR might get jealous, though.

NICE! I'm going for the monochromatic look too. I think it makes the MINI look a lot more simple which IMO is a very,very good thing. Looking forward to seeing your wheel new wheel color unless it's that awful shinny material that some poor folks call chrome.

Nope. I sold my Cooper about a week after I picked up my S. There was no way in hell I could have afforded both of them at the same time.
And thanks very much!
