Aaron and his staff down at OutMotoring are awesome! Always extremely friendly and helpful with any questions I have about their products and Mini's in general. I live near by so it is nice to be able to go down and pick up everything I need and look around at what they have on the shelves. They always have what I come to get in stock and if they don't they always offer to order it for me. I have purchased almost all of my Mini parts from them and I will continue to do so! Thanks again OutMotoring!
Surfboard rack is good thing, that makes surfboard safe. And the free shipment is good initiative.
I had a bit of disappointment today when my new hitch arrived - it was not the correct model for my car.
In retrospect, I looked back at the ordering page and found that it was my mistake but I could see why. I searched for a hitch for a Mini-S R53 and it took me to a 1001 which is for a non-S R50. The model numbers for the hitches and the cars they match up with were at the very bottom of the page, which I didn't see when ordering. It would have been very helpful if the drop-down menu had not just the hitch model number (1003) but the car model as well (R50, R53...) to help avoid this confusion.
It cost me return shipping and another week or more of wait. Not fun.
