Buying new wheels for MINI Countryman Cooper S All4

We bought a new Cooper S All4 Countryman in March 2014. It has run flat Goodyear tyres (A17L 225/45 R18 91V) and we have done about 6,000 miles. Where can we go to buy new genuine MINIwheels? We live in Cornwall. The car is from Ocean in Penryn, should we just talk to them about it? I want wheels with finer 'spokes' and absolutely not black.. Any suggestions - thank you.

If you haven't scraped the wheels they will sell on eBay. But rather than replace 18s with 18s I'd be looking at going down a size or two to 17-inch which will, of course, mean new tyres, so sell the existing wheels + tyres on eBay. Someone out there will think they look wonderful.
