Looks like yours could be nearly a twin of mine.

2011 MCS Eclipse Grey with black roof/black interior here too, I got it on christmas for the wife, and both of us love it! I will have some pics up in a couple weeks after I get my H&R Touring cup kit installed (I'm waiting until after my finals to get the install done). Other mods already on the car: blacked out head and tail light rings, JCW black front grill, stubby antenna, tinted side markers on fender flares, and the rubber MCS mats.

Dat da da DAAAAAA!!!

A new owner appears!

I just converted an order I had for a BRG2 Justa to a Eclipse Gray MCCS!

It's gonna be grey, with black, and black, and black, and black! (so colorful, I know!)

Now if only I could find something more productive to do with my time than anxiously clicking over and over to check the status of my order in the owner's lounge!

edit: well poo...this is in the coupe's section? ah well, hi anyways!

Nah I searched for eclipse gray looking for the clubman version of the thread (which doesn't exist! ) and when I noticed this was in the coupe section, I also noticed there's no button to delete a post...

That's so hot. Mine looks the same, but I ordered it with the black wheels. I can't wait to see how it looks!

Checking in from CLT

Checking in from Charlotte!

Just picked up my 2011 MCS... I can already report that in only 30 miles of driving, this car feels much more refined than my 2008. Cabin noise has been greatly reduced and the ride is more supple while still maintaining some feel for the enthusiast in us. And the stock engine feels like the old JCW engine tune. In fact, it feels better! Smoother!

Pics coming soon... Anyone found an EG badge for our sigs yet?!?

Thanks!! With any luck all four wheels will stay together and arrive tomorrow and I'll get a pic with the new shoes on Saturday.

I hope your order goes nice and quick for you!!

The white roof will look real classy. I had a DS/W in the past. It's especially attractive with matching white team dynamic wheels. Really Really sharp.



I'd have ordered another white roof, but I felt really compelled to go for the Chili Red roof this go around.

Yeah, I've looked through your gallery before. Your MINI is sharp. I think some nice white wheels would really tie it together. They can be a pain to keep clean though. But totally worth it.

I really like the look of the white roof & white wheels!!! Very nice contrast indeed. And what a COOL photograph!

I guess I will check in here then too. 2011 EG/Blk MCS. Just installed NM Springs, Alta controls arms, Alta end links, and Alta 22mm rear sway bar. Next is wheels. Want to go darker but undecided between black or gunmetal or between OZ Supperleggas or supperturismos...Decisions decisions.
