Help MotoringFile Design Its 2014 MINI F56

MINI USA, for the third year in a row, has agreed to provide MotoringFile with new long-term test vehicle, this year a new generation F56 MINI Hatchback and MotoringFile wants your help with the vehicle. It explains:
we want your input on options, colors, fabric — everything. What are your must-have details? We want your input so that the MF test car gives us the best cross-section of features that MINI enthusiasts want to see put through the long-term ringer.

Here’s how to help:

Go to MINIUSA.com and use the configurator to build your MF test car spec
Download an image of the car you’ve spec’d 
Post that photo in a comment [here] and then give us a brief explanation of why yours is the way we should go 
Then everyone use the up-vote/down-vote functionality built into Disqus to tell use your preferences 
That’s the what. Now how about the when? Once we get your ideas, we’ll create the final spec and order the car through MINI USA. We’re told our build-date should be sometime this spring, making the latest MotoringFile MINI one of the first F56s to come to the USA.
