MINI’s ‘SALT’, ‘PEPPER’ and ‘CHILI’ packs will undergo content and pricing changes from 1 December 2003.

All three packs, ‘SALT’, ‘PEPPER’ and ‘CHILI’, now feature an on-board computer that would normally retail at £100.00 if selected as an option outside of the pack. All ‘PEPPER’ packs will also get the MINI Cooper S steering wheel worth £120.00, whilst the ‘CHILI’ pack gains a brand new three-spoke sports leather steering wheel.

To reflect this increased specification, ‘packs’ will rise in price but still represent a saving of between 30 to 40 per cent on average over pricing these popular items individually. New prices are as follows:

SALT Pack Current price New price
MINI One £270 £350
MINI One D £250 £300
PEPPER Pack Current price New price
MINI One £750* £750
MINI One D £700* £700
MINI Cooper £320 £450

* PEPPER pack introduced for MINI One and MINI One D in September 2003 – no change in pricing.

CHILI Pack Current price New price
MINI Cooper £1,020 £1,300
MINI Cooper S £1,370 £1,500
