What color interior are you getting with your Yellow/silver?

I agree the bubblebee Yellow/black/black is awesome.

I want the yellow silver combo. I was thinking the grey would go with the silver, but I love the beige dash look. Will beige and yellow clash? How can I get a brochure that shows more than a thumbprint of the interior colors.

It would be easier if the thumbprint sized photos all showed the same angle/view.

What are your thoughts?

Gigi F when you park your red MINI and Yellow SMART next to each other, they may have a mustard/ketchup look about them.:rolleyes: LOL

When I park my yellow MINI next to a red one, I smile with that thought when I get out. You throw a British racing green (pickle) in the line up and it almost makes your mouth water if you are hungry.....

No alarm system? Are you going after market or do you live out in the country? You threw me b/c your avatar shows a yellow/silver combo doesn't it?

Avatar is the car on the roof of the smart House in Venice. I've been in LA for decades and never saw the advantage in an alarm system. Especially when the go off in a parking garage and everyone ignores them. My current Lexus and Prius have factory alarms, never been activated (except by me by mistake).

Humm interesting thought/perspective. I know what you mean by everyone ignores them, but I bet they make the bad guys nervous while they are vandalizing.

Perhaps I can get a red flashing LED and stick it on the dash, like the warning lights on my present cars. I'm not sure why crooks would be nervous, everyone ignores the alarms anyway. Now disabling the ignition when the car is broken into is something different.

we all cheer for a yellow soccer team....

Although I live in Washington DC, I'm a die hard Columbus Crew fan, so of course I'm getting yellow/black with black leather heated seats. :woohoo
Just watch them change their kit colors.
lol
That being said, I think you can't go wrong with any of the interiors, athough I think red would be my last choice.

I've never wanted a yellow car ever but I did pick this for safety reasons. Cleveland gets lots of gray gloomy days I wanted folks to be able to see me better. But I had to go with the red interior, I thought it was stupid slick and I have never owned a car without leather seats!

Thank-you for the input, I'm hoping to hear from some Yellow/silver peeps. Anyone know where I can get a brochure with better pics of the interior choices?

Yellow/black/black

Yellow / black / and black leather interior is the way to go!

I love the red but I don't want to look like McDonald's... :cool:

Yel/Blk/Blk in Ohio, that makes two.

Make that two Yel/Blk/Blk in Ohio. Was on the fence over Sil/Sil/Blk, but my wife tilted it in favor of "being seen" while on the road. So Yel/Blk/Blk it is.

Didn't make the Crew connection until D.C. mentioned it. Around here this time of year it is all Scarlet / Gray ;-)

Hello Bumblebee,
Is this Perry from Metroplex mini.org?

What do you mean HAD a ly/b mini?

I'm on my second ly/w/mc. my '03 was totaled by a redlight runner. I now have an '06. This SMART will be a second car for commutes and my MINI will be my big car.:)

ly=liquid yellow
w= white roof

Hello Bimmerdob,
What does the L stand for in your avatar? Y/B/L passion?
yellow body panels
Black tridion
L ?

Interior on the passion only comes in Red, Black, Beige Right? Or can we get the black with the grey swirl? or is that the Black they mean if you don't get leather? I wish I could see a Y/S/Beige picture to see what the beige looks like with the yellow. anyone got a pic of that combo?
My MINI cooper is yellow with a white roof and solid black interior. I was hoping to get a little different look and still keep my yellow exterior. Red with yellow will look like mustard mixed with ketchup (IMO only) so that just leaves beige, which looks cool, but what will it look like with yellow. Hummmm inquiring minds want to know.

Yup that'll be me. I had a 2003 LY/B MINI + all 3 packages. But mine had major issues with the cylinder head that'll cost me over 10K to fix :( It was drivable but once you reach above 3,000 rpm it miss fire. I traded in for a Scion xB but never really got used to it like the MINI. So now I drive a truck. I'm getting the SMART as my daily driver 'cause I'm tired of forking out $350+ in gas per month. The SMART will probably cut that down by more than half. I still have hopes to get another MINI someday. Just in the back burner right now.
