Do you have any other pics with the 15mm spacers all around? Thinking of adding a set of spacers.

Ladies and Gentlemen -
Perhaps I'm reviving this thread but I was reading it in full for the past few days. I just got a new to me 2012 MCS EG with 25,000 miles, one-owner, no accidents lease return. Very happy here, it was not my first color choice but when I saw it in the dealer lot I really liked it. I have a ton of questions and will post pictures this weekend. I believe it is the base MCS however I noticed it has the 17" conical wheels so I'm not sure if it has the sports package. It has the manual but no window sticker available. I will try to contact MINI to get the car details with VIN number. I will be posting pictures this weekend. This will be a "toy" car for the weekends. My first MINI!

Welcome! there are a bunch of BMW VIN decoders that work for mini. Just google it and you can have all the options in seconds. much easier than calling mini.

Hi all, just purchased a 2012 Clubman S in Eclipse Gray, wanted to order some of the Black (the roof is black) touch up paint from Dr ColorChip and there are two choices, does anyone know which it is ...

B11 Absolute Black or A94 amidnitht Black, I’m assuming this is the same color in the Interior too.

Thanks, Nick

Neither of the above. Both are metallic black, but the contrasting roof is a non-metallic.

I found this thread from years ago where this was discussed, hope it helps you.

Thanks, Jet Black makes perfect sense and it matches up with Dr ColorChip.

New to me 2013 MCS Eclipse Grey

Likely purchasing this car next week and wondering about the rim color. Should I stick with the silver or get them powder coated black?

Do electric blue. It totally works, trust me.

Good to see the Eclipse Grey thread back up, posted here way back when I got my mini, I've done some work to it since then. This was one foggy morning on the dragon in Tennessee racing around with my buddy in his s2000.

New to me as of a couple weeks ago, my 2013 MCS with JCW aero kit. I added the stripes and love the outcome.

If I'm not mistaken, isn't that a Dark Silver pre-LCI model rather than an Eclipse Grey? Personally I prefer the Dark Silver.

New Facebook group

Hi all! I just wanted to say that I just started a new Facebook group called “Eclipse Grey MINI owners Group” if y’all would like to join! Seems as if there’s nothing special for eclipse greys and would love for everyone to join the group to share their EGs 😄
