Are the pillows available in checker pattern? I've seen them offered on Ali Baba, but didn't want to deal with the import issues required when ordering directly from China. I would purchase the checker design if available.
I'm new to MINIs, but so far outmotoring.com has been my go-to source. Aaron has been more then helpful on several occasions. I'll continue to give him my business and would recommend anyone do the same.
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.
*plasti-cote is your new best friend*
Just got the parts I ordered, everything fit perfectly and more importantly it looks great! Looking forward to doing more with my Mini with your help of course.
