sweet little product. matches perfectly.
install is tricky, you can't just stuff it in there. i loosed my lower center console (2 screws in cup holders and 2 under mirror adjusters) then removed the lower screws on the pillars. that let me pull everything forward and create enough room to stuff it back there.
I have so far ordered from this site 2 times. Had a glitch with my first order, emailed them, and PROBLEM SOLVED.OIn m,y second order, to make sure they sent out the correct item for my year mini, Aaron took the time to call me to confirm the information. They have awesome pricing on aftermarket Mini items and mods, and you simply cannot beat the
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.

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.
