PostSubject: Paint price increases   3rd November 2016, 15:16

Anyone looking to buy a new MINI will be in for a shock as the cost of solid paint colours has been increased!

Pepper White, Chili Red, Volcanic Orange which were a £0.00 cost option are now £475 on the hatch, £515 on the Clubman & £550 on the Countryman! The same price as metallic colour option.

Strangely Moonwalk Grey which is metallic is now £0.00?

The base price on the models has increase as well I believe so assume option & packs will have.

TLC now £399, makes you wonder if cheaper to get someone like TWG to do it?

The colour pricing doesn't surprise me.  VW do it with most of their ranges - one colour is free (a naff shade of blue on Seats) and white/red is about £250, metallic about £500.

It's a bit of a racket really because metallic costs no more to put on a car than solid paint!

Why they've put the base prices up I don't know, they already have stockpiling issues and dealers are literal pre reg zones... Upping the price won't help this!

When I had a company car ... many years ago ...  metallic paint was free to fleets  (including from  BMW) so having to pay extra for  any paint colour is a con!
