For all those who don’t want or need the silver and/or optional chrome trim in the R56 interior, it looks like MINI may be offering a new choice. A source at the Oxford Plant has told us that recent R55 prototypes have come down the line with a new black/dark chrome package in place of the silver or chrome. What is not known is whether this trim will be an exclusive option on the 2008 Clubman or available across the R56 range as well.
