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.

Just wanted to thank you for dispatching and receiving, today, my order of Fuel Injectors. As usual, your service is first class and I'm sure that I will be ordering other items in the future.
Many thanks and regards,
Grill badges are adorable, you need a dog!!! or a Pit Bull head- NO ears chopped.
We love the theme of resurgence in MINI's history. There is so much vitality housed in this petite vehicle. We think Porter would agree. He's not a bulldog, but he's still our 'dawg'.
What about MINI appeals to you?!
