I took a break from washing/waxing my JCW and my mum’s 328xi (my sister has her MINI right now!) to read MotoringFile. What a pleasant surprise! The new MINI collection is out – the MINI Rooftop Collection.
I can do a quick review based on what I see so far, but an in-depth one will arrive when we get the collection at the dealership (probably in a few months – sad face!)
MINI seems to like updating the previous collection and re-releasing it in monotone colours. They did that with the “pop art” collection last year. A couple bags from last year’s MINI 50 Collection are now released with the same print on a similar style, in a monochromatic colour-scheme.
Classic “retro” Mini print wallets with chunky zippers are new for the collection. Also, the luggage is updated wtih more choices – including impressive alloys as the wheels.
The part that really caught my eye are the black Union Jack duffle bags! Those leather (real leather or not?) UJs look SHARP! I can’t wait to add this to my collection. Although I can already hear Adam now…. “not more bags!!!!!!!!!!!!”
I gotta motor – I have the West Enders MINI Club meet tonight at MINI Waterloo and I still have to buff the wax off my mum’s BMW!
