Just received my non-OEM Black Jack 'scuttles' for my R57s. First impressions, they look just as good as the OEMs and installed easily enough with the same quality fit. I went with these non-OEMs as two of my Black Jack emblems (same side of course) fell out of the OEM carrier. So figured I would go with the cheaper one-piece untis this time around vs. another trip to the dealership. Even with the exchange and shipping (I am in Toronto), seems like a more reasonable price point (inserts alone are C$180+13% tax here). I did see one comment around fading so time will tell I suppose. 5 stars for now and great service from OutMotoring as well. Thanks.

Advantages: + OEM look
+ OEM fit
+ Great price

Disadvantages: - possilbe concern around long-term fading from another reviewer (still rating 5 stars unless I start seeing this for myself)

I bought these almost 6 years ago, and I can't say I'm too impressed with the way they've held up. After about 3 years the white areas have yellowed considerably, which looks quite ugly and weathered, as compared the OEM mirror covers I own, which I've had longer, and still look just as good as when I bought them.

I also found that the driver's side housing never fit as tight as the one on the passenger side. This however, may just be a flaw with pair I ended up with.

In short, I wish I'd have asked about getting the OEM version, (which I think was a special order item at the time) that was only about $40 more.
My advice, skip this and pay extra for quality.

Advantages: *Slightly cheaper that the OEM version.

Disadvantages: *Discoloration over time.
*Fits poorly.

Details

Lets face it, the side markers on the Gen 2 Cooper S are just plain gross. It looks like MINI had a design intern that was fresh from the Toy Industry doing the design of those pups. These replacement Black and Grey Union Jack scuttles (also called side marker housings) are a good option to add some design detail to your MINI. Priced as a pair, they completely replace the existing side marker housings that are supplied from the factory. You will need to transfer the oval light, which clicks in from the back. To remove existing housings, simply slide the housing forward (towards the gap between the fender and hood) and the whole thing pops out. Please note: these are NOT the OEM supplied side markers, and the inserts are not interchangeable with the OEM units. However, they are engineered and manufactured to very high standards, and the cost is lot lower. We think it is a better overall product, and the lower price makes it a easy decision. If you would like to get the OEM side markers (inserts and housings) let us know and we can get those as well. Priced as a set of 2.

Great customer service and email queries were responded in a very timely manner! Fantastic!!!

Love your business and your attempt to service MINI owners. One suggestion for you. When you feature a produce on the front of your emails each time, you should explain just exactly what the part is, what it does, and why a MINI owner would want to replace something on their car with it. All of us are not mechanics and might not recognize a picture of a part. As you do the site now, you always put these things in there and the copy is written as though everyone knows exactly what the part is for.

Another idea, what are the types of things that many MINI owners can do with their cars in terms of customization. Your site is so vast and the number of ideas so large, it's hard for the average person to get their arms around what you offer and why we should buy. You write as though we already know what we want when we come to your site. In actuality, many MINI owners who are not car-savvy don't even know what they might be looking for.

I hope this is helpful.

Best.

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.
