I picked up a '10 50th anniversary Cooper S primarily for the winter months!
No, with the MW being metallic (with silver interior) and it appears to have a silver base to it, IMO, it doesn't look anything like AW. AW looks so "clean" and bright compared to MW plus MW looks like a light silver from certain angles. If you think that's bad - my Mini is painted Silver White with a White roof! If I need color, I can always take out my IR/IR E46 M3...
