After 12 weeks wait, it’s arrived!

Post by Lytesben » Thu Dec 07, 2017 8:21 pm

Long time lurker, first time posting. Earlier this year I decided to order myself a new toy as a birthday present to myself. After 12 long weeks it was finally collection day yesterday :spotman:

I know the colour scheme I have gone for it’s probably a bit marmite and I have to admit I was unsure of the combination until I saw it in person. The seats are a lighter colour than I was imagining but now I’m used to them I have to say I like it :D

Spec wise:

F21 M140i Shadow Edition
Mineral Grey
Cognac with brown highlight Dakota leather
Fineline Stream wood interior trim with pearl chrome
Sport automatic transmission
Media Package
Apple CarPlay
Heated seats
Steering wheel heating
Usual Shadow Edition spec.

One day and about 250 miles in and I have to say it really is a serious car. Scarily fast compared to my previous MINI Cooper S (even with driving sensibly for the run in period).

Fully expecting a load of people to dislike the combination but all I can say is that it’s a good job we all have different tastes rather than driving around in beige boxes :lol:

Hello mate nice car looks a good colour combo the shadow with the dark grey wheels and MG

They’re great cars with the b58 engine incredibly torquey and fun

Enjoy!

Love the colour combo, and it looksvery nice indeed. I have to say thst I am not a fan though of wood trim as it gives it a nautical theme best suited for boats...... sorry.

Wood trim looks nice and a change from the brushed aluminium look and black which I have on my Nismo
Had a better look at the hexagonal this week which is nicer in the flesh then the pictures

That looks great. I didn't imagine the wooden trim could look nice, seems to work well with oyster.

Really liking the interior combo. Mine is MG and black. Functional and dull. Cognac wasn't an option when I orderded sadly. Liking the wood effect. It's nice to see different.

Thanks for the comments everyone, I honestly thought that it wasn’t going to be a popular colour combination :)

I was told, “that’s an interesting and unusual combination” when I picked it up and was worried it was going to be horrendous but I think it looks pretty classy :lol:
