Customers' commentsExcellent 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.

Ordered a small part from you guys on 22nd December and received it in New Zealand on 5th Jan. It came direct from USA not from China. Tracing information every day on progress of parcel. Best I have ever had. I know where I will be buying my Mini parts from now on. Very pleased I found you.

After my daughter ran over a piece of "plastic" on the interstate in her 2006 R53 puncturing the fuel tank, I placed an order with Aaron for replacement. Due to the pandemic, inflation and the overall state of the world, both the price of the item from Mini and the shipping costs had increased significantly. Aaron was proactive and made me aware of the changes in price and the potential shipping delays and was willing to work with me on both. I'm happy to say the part part arrived to me sooner than anticipated and I'll be installing it this weekend. Aaron is a great guy running a great company and he has a customer for life! Kyle York
