Loved my mini, and we decided to show off and had the orange with black roof and a tattoo on the side. Unfortunately the suspension was too hard and gearbox too stiff with my shoulder issues so it went back at the end of the lease, still miss it though

To answer question after having a white car I would go for black, they still look better dirty than a white car does!

I have a blue Clubman and before that had a white/silver hatch. The hatch was brilliant at hiding any marks and dirt. Sadly I am considering getting rid of the Clubman as its just so damn low down. Can afford a Countryman of a similar age and spec so need to look at something else. Mini is a brilliant wee car though! I would go white in this case

I think the white one looks much nicer than the black in this model.

Id go for the white one and get it ceramic coated to protect the paint from dirt. When it gets dirty just hose it off as the dirt doesnt stick.
I have this on my new white Corolla Estate and I just give it a two minute once over with the jet washer on my drive... no soap, just water. The dirt just flows off

As for black. Unless you are prepared to have it professionally polished every six months or so it will show off all the tiny scratches, even if you use a wrong type of cloth. And never ever put a black car through a car wash !

I agree, I had a white Beetle, it was a nightmare to keep clean.

White shows less dirty marks/scuffs.
