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.

Consider it a mini refrigerator for your MINI. The grill badge holder and more importantly the bazillions of magnetic backed custom grill badges that have flooded the market have created a underground club of collectors. I've talked to MINI owners that have over 50 badges and rotate them depending on their mood. I must be boring because I only have one (the OutMotoring.com one). Of course, in order to flaunt your style, your club, your whatever badge, you will need somewhere to stick it to and this is the best solution on the market. The metal bracket mounts to your grill* and is easily removable and can be installed in just minutes. Durable black powder coated finish is ready to rock. This was designed by me and is different than the other holders on the market in that the back has female pem-nuts instead of having studs sticking out which makes it easier to fit the different grills on the market and is cheaper to ship, so we pass that savings on to you.

Fits these MINI models:

all current MINI's*

*Please note: on the 07+ Cooper and Clubman (Cooper S does not require modification) hatchbacks the stock grill requires that two holes be drilled out to allow the 2 bolts to go through from the back. For some reason MINI decided to put a solid backing on the Cooper grill behind the chrome slats...silly.

INSTALL:
On the Gen 1 MINI the grill does not need to be removed as the back is accessible once the hood is popped.

On the Gen 2 MINI's the 4 black plastic rivets come out in about 20 seconds each and the lower trim just pops off with a bit of force and there are a few giant "squeeze tabs" behind the trim and once those are released the whole grill pops off which allows easy access to the back so the badge can be installed.
