Lovely colour and spec combination.
Totally agree with the alloy wheel comments, I go for the spoke design for ease of cleaning and superior shine/bling

I'd like to lower it a bit but because I spend all day driving around town and over speed humps, I'm not sure it would be practical lol

Thanks! They do look great when the alloys are all nice and clean and shiny don't they, I prefer silver over black alloys as they're a lot easier to keep looking clean

I ordered the car at the beginning of June, but wanted to wait for the July changes, which consisted of a new digital fuel gauge design, driver alertness feature, white display night time lighting, display tweaks to the Head Up Display and the driving modes moved from around the gear stick to a toggle switch (where the HUD toggle was previously).

My R56 MCS was a fantastic MINI, probably the best MINI I've owned, but he had reached 4 years old and I needed to change, so I specced a Cooper S auto in Blazing Red and Black with the Chili and Tech Packs, Cottonwood dash, MINI Yours Lounge Leather, heated seats and windscreen, darkened glass and a whole host of other bits.

The drive home on Monday was fantastic, I caught an early ferry from Dublin to Holyhead and ended up driving back down through Wales, through Betws-y-Coed and some of the roads around the EVO Triangle and I've used during the MINI runs, so I got a good chance to drive it properly rather than sit on the motorway the whole way home!

The F56 is a completely different car to drive, there is so much technology in them now it's amazing, and the interior is a lovely place to be!

Anyway, onto some pics now















Great looking car.
If the drive mode has been moved to what was the HUD toggle switch does that mean that it rises up automatically when you start up?

Thanks! Yeah the HUD rises up automatically, it did with the old toggle anyway (unless you'd had it hidden when you turned the engine off). You can hide the HUD from in the settings menu instead now
