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.

Although I am not ordering any parts on this visit just yet, I wanted to thank you guys for such an honest and awesome company. My best friend just ordered her NM Exhaust from you today, and she had nothing but praises for your customer service and product availability. You are definitely going to be our number one source for parts.
I dropped by OutMotoring with my wife today to check it out after giving her a 2015 Mini Paceman last week. Aaron and Meghan took a lot of interest in us as new customers. We were invited to come back to the warehouse and invited to view all the available Mini parts and items. We selected some accessories and were very pleased with the selection and quality of the items we purchased. If you get a chance to drop by, you'll find friendly, knowledgeable and helpful folks there! I plan to return in the future for Mini parts and accessories.
