Default Roadster Roll Call with Pictures - 13th April 2013, 02:35 PM

As the first thread here I thought I should start an intro thread. Tell us about your car, and post pics!

I'll kick things off then. This is my 2012 fJCW Roadster fondly refered to as Aquila.





It's Lightening Blue with Satellite Grey Lounge Leather and a whole host of options. It's safe to say I'm over the moon with it and 12000 miles in it paints a massive grin on my face on a daily basis.

Here's some arty shots of it:







As for future plans, I'm definitely getting a GP diffuser for it and a Challenge exhaust is on the cards too. I'm happy with the understated look of the car but may well look into some subtle bonnet stripes. That's only a maybe though.

This is my GFs fJCW, with all the options bar HK



It's brilliant, and her 1st JCW but unfortunately is hopefully being rejected on Monday due to paint issues

It's a long story, and one I won't go into until its resolved

^ That is crap. I saw it the other day on MT (I think) and thought it looked absolutely stunning.

You going to go for a replacement, or your money back? I understand if you don't want to say until it is sorted. Good luck though

To be fair, the dealer has been ok about it so far, we will see how it goes Monday

I'm desperate for her to get another, she says she's lost faith and is never getting a new car again etc but I think it's just this experience that's marred getting her 1st ever new car

That is completely understandable on her behalf - I probably would be thinking along the same lines at first.

Good to hear the dealer is being amicable about it all. That is what they should be like - hope you get it all sorted soon and replacement as it is one beautiful looking car!

I started this thread then realized all my photos were on the other computer...

Here's my 2012 Roadster S, Lightning Blue, black leather/cloth, JCW body kit and red stitching inside. I have Challenge Spokes with the factory runflats for summer use right now, and Enkeis with Blizzaks for the winter.

This is the day I brought it home, just over a year ago:



Here's the Bay of Fundy that weekend:



Here we are at MINIs on Top in 2012:



Here we are at War Eagle Mill in MINIs In The Ozarks in 2012:



Looking nice with the winter wheels on:

I like all your GB stuff

You need a GB tax disc!

Unfortunately not mine, but as close to MINI perfection as its gets imo





Presence is a curious thing. If you need to prove you've got it, you probably never had it in the first place.

No thanks , I have bad memories of getting MOTs on ancient Minis before I could get them taxed...
