After a year of hearing customers ask for it, MINI is finally allowing for matching C-pillars on the Clubman. However it’s with one big caveat – you can only get matching C-pillars if you order Pure Silver or Midnight Black.

On the Midnight Black R55 the black C-pillars are just that, black. That means that they won’t technically match the metallic Midnight Black of the body and will be based on the old Jet Black non-metallic last offered in 2005. However on the Pure Silver Clubman you will get the same Pure Silver on the C-pillars making it the only truly mono-chromatic Clubman offered.

These new combinations can be had on all variants of the R55 Clubman including the Cooper, Cooper S and John Cooper Works models. The website will be updated shortly and the dealer ordering guides have these new rules as well.
