It would appear that the current MINI, R50 and R53, are going out with a bang in their final year of production.

Like the classic Mini in it’s later years, it looks like MINI will soon offer a silver roof option for some colors on the Cooper and Cooper S. It’s unclear exactly when this new option will be available but based on what we’re hearing, it’s a safe bet that it will be one of the handful of additions to the options list for 2006. Whether or not this option has anything to do with the upcoming special options package has yet to be determined.
