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.

This is the revised edition (3rd edition with the extra info like trouble codes and newer bits of info for the convertible that were not in the 2nd edition) of the very popular Bentley Service manual for the Gen1 MINIs and is by far the most comprehensive book available on repairing the MINI. The others on the market are usually about 1/2 or 1/3 the cost of this and generally have about 10% the content. For example, the Haynes manual will say something like this when referring to replacing a gasket "take the engine out and replace the gasket". Hello, what kind of useless advice is that? This manual has numerous photos with explanations that are very thorough as well as references to OEM tools and other critical information to get your MINI fixed right without the guess work.

The MINI Cooper Bentley Service Manual is one of the many MINI Cooper Parts and Accessories that we carry and will fit the following MINI Cooper Models and Years:
