Excellent fit. I bought the matte black to try and match the rest of the trim and it looks factory installed.

Removing the OE chrome grill "nuts" was a bit of a pain, so I elected to just snap the plastic threads off rather than attempt to remove them. I wouldn't plan on keeping the OE grill as the plastic threads and stamped nuts are practically destroyed no matter how gentle you are.

The upper grill snaps in and use the same fasteners as the OE. The new stamped nuts can be a bit annoying, just seat the nut on the ball of your thumb and turn. Once the nut cuts into the plastic use a nut-driver to snug up--don't over tighten.

The lower grill just snaps in. I cleaned and plasti coted the bumper black, as you can see the bumper color behind the new grill--my car is red so it really stood out.

This grill makes the car look so much better and more up to date. I really like it.

A common issue with MINI over the years has been deformation of the sheet metal that makes up the front strut mount towers. It's common enough that the it's been given a nickname "mushrooming" which occurs over time and will eventually lead to poor alignment specs as well as tire wear. The simple solution is to install the Strut Tower Reinforcement Plates using factory hardware. Installs in about 30 minutes but may require bent or deformed sheet metal to be bent back into shape first. Sold as a set of 2.
