PostSubject: Hot Chocolate Owners?    2nd October 2013, 08:24

I can't be the only one (daft enough) to buy a MINI Clubman in Hot Chocolate, well I know I'm not as I saw one drive past me last night and a friend owns one too...

...so post 'em if you've got one!

Hot Chocolate is one of my favourite colours on the Clubman, I saw this JCW at the Brands Festival in 2012 and have to say it looked awesome:

So I fitted the luggage rack, and now I'm having second thoughts about whether I like it or not... I had hoped it would add a vintage traveller looking vibe to proceedings but I'm in two minds Rolling Eyes

I've got some cool ideas to 'dress' it for future meets/runs but I need to order some extra bits & pieces Smile

Can you wrap it in either a wood or wicker effect?

Way back in 1990, I bought a C-reg Fiesta 1.1 in a similar colour, does that count?!

I'm inclined to agree, I also think it would work if it were further back - trying hard to fall in love with it, it certainly looked better in my head
