Design on the cloth top

Alright, we know it can be done but is it a factory item or does the dealership put the design on. I think the subtle look of the Union Jack looks fantastic but I have other designs in mind.

when I looked at one with this at MINI Orlando it appeared to be woven in, not something 'applied' so unless you replace the canvas .... in theory the dealer can replace the canvas. They just replaced the cloth of my top under warranty ... or that's what the ticket says anyway ... only took two tries to get it almost right ....

Factory has a part for the Union jack on the F57. Woven in.









I have seen some people in the UK put aftermarket tops on their R52 and R57s that contained a UK flag but again that was custom and it was the whole top that was done, not a print.
