    I was picking up my wife's new MCS earlier this week (very cool experience, pictures forthcoming)

    Noticed at the dealer a black cabrio with a single bonnett strip running parallel to the front bumper. Looked at it three times and still went, "man that's fugly".

    Get's better, Driving in to the office this mornign and see a snot green/baby poop cabrio with the same thing. Oh yeah they call it 'Interchange Yellow'

    Now I'm all for pushing the foundries of MINIdom being a single striper myself, the perpendicualar kind, but this is nuts!

    Crazy kids these days! :lol:

    Some early Cameros had that kind of stripe

    Now that I think about it, many muscle cars did. But WTF, different strokes, ya know!

    This strip follows the leading edge of the hood, but whatever...

    Maybe it's a work in progress... perhaps they're going for this look, on a MINI?
