Well, I know someone who works at Cooper Teesside MINI, he told me there was a GP there waiting to be picked up earlier so I went along to have a look as I live fairly close.

When I've seen the photos they've looked great but I've always thought I preferred the first GP.

Seeing this in the metal changed my mind! I loved the colour coded arches and gloss diffuser. Hopefully the owner is on the forum and has lots more photos than me! I've blanked the plate for the privacy of the owner.

ENJOY!

I appreciate the fact that it the quickest mini etc but I just can't get on with the styling.

Prefer looks of GP1 but wouldn't turn down a a drive of one of these.

The last picture is probably the best representation of the actual colour, it's gorgeous.

I've always thought the same about the wheels, but they just looked so right. I just don't understand MINIs thinking with that wheel gap, it's a GP what are they doing?!

too many stickers
I agree, I saw pictures of one in Japan I think it was, and the owner had taken the stickers off. Looked much cleaner, having said that, it did just look like a JCW. With the first GP the unique bodykit set it apart, I really think they could/should have tried harder with this. Not too hard so it's over the top, just slightly different do every JCW.

He was a middle aged guy, I saw him getting in. Are his initials KBZ by any chance?

Can think of a few things I'd rather spend all that money on!

I also saw one of these today stuck in traffic in the centre of Taunton. I had a good look as I drove past.

I decided at that moment that I wanted one!
