Share your JCW Color Combo

Ok everyone, just post what color combo you ordered for your new JCWs! I'm trying to get a clear picture of what were the top picks for our JCW garage.
I'll start out..

My JCW order is a Thunder grey / Red roof

That's mine too. It'll probably continue to be the de-facto JCW color combo.

Thanks. I almost ordered thunder gray but I liked how midnight black blended with the black bits on the car. I will be doing a few exterior mods over the next two weeks and will post an updated photo once complete.

3 Weeks from Oxford to the Dealership. It was stuck at the VPC in Baltimore for an extra 5 days due to the oil label recall.

Here's what I have lined up:

JCW Pro Front Spoiler
Headlight and Taillight Black Trims
Sport Rod Antenna
JCW Pro Rear Spoiler Extensions
20% Tint
Gloss Black Wrap on Front Bumper Chrome

Kicking around the idea of Carbon Fiber for the scoop and side mirrors

Well, my '04 JCW is British Racing Green. Rebel Green is much more true to real BRG.

Two (or two and a half) color choices... Help, please?!

Fair disclosure, I have not yet pulled the trigger, but I'm really itching to get a 3rd gen MINI JCW. (Have owned both the 1st and 2nd gen. cars, but never a JCW or even an S.) Soooo, what would be my color combo? I'm kind of undecided between two:


First choice: Lapisluxury blue, red roof and mirrors, white bonnet stripes, and a quick manual swap of the red mirror caps for white caps (can't be *that* expensive, right?). Of course the configurator won't let you do the swap, but that's what good, old GIMP is for. Comes really close to the MINI concept city car, doesn't it? Probably wouldn't find too many of these on the street.




Also posting an alternative view of the same car (from the German configurator instead of the US configurator) but without the mirror caps replaced this time.




Second choice: Pepper white with red roof and mirrors and the JCW bonnet stripes. Much less fancy, but still hot looking (and quite a bit less expensive).


All thoughts welcome.

That's nice. Get some black line trim and it will look really good.

Black line trim: Fits the JCW F56 also and Fits the F55 models too.

Thanks. I just replaced with the black trim from ECS this past weekend. Chrome grill trim is being wrapped in gloss black this weekend as well as 20% tint. I'll post an updated pic this weekend.
