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.

I own a 2013 Mini Cooper R59 and have ordered a significant amount of items from this website. ran into some issues with the fitment of some things but Aaron from Outmotoring was quick to solve the issue. I am very pleased with the quality of all the items I have ordered and as far as I am concerned, this is the only place to get genuine, high-quality MINI accessories and parts!
Thanks for the great service! Nicholas
