DIdn't work on my R53. i've seen similar installs on youtube where they had an adapter. Not sure if that's what was wrong. I put my old one back and although it's missing the lens, it works so i know it's not my mini.
When will you get the Tachometer covers in checkered flag for the countryman? Please advise.......
I recently purchased the belt tensioner from Alta and had it installed. Had I only known over the past several thousand miles that my shock was bad, I would have changed it sooner. The shop guys brought the old one out to show me that it was completely useless. Since replacing it my mileage has increased dramatically, and performance as well. apparently the drive belt was slipping on the super charger. And power, all I can say is "Yeah, Baby". Thanks guys for making this part available.
Ever since I have stumbled onto this site I have not been able to leave it. The prices are good and the customer service is top notch. I will be a customer for life due to all the above and great products. Thank You..
If you've ever been to a MINI event or club gathering or maybe saw a MINI driving around town with a little round badge on the grill you've likely wondered to yourself what this was all about. Was that MINI special? Did they attend some event and got this badge? Did they win some sort of award? What's the deal with these badges on the grill anyways?
Well, it started many years ago with classic British cars having custom made ornate badges that designate certain country of origin or special edition vehicles and when MINI came 'back' to the market and made their presence known along with it came a desire to dig into the British Heritage and racing from which the MINI came from. It did not take long for MINI owners to start putting these classic style badges on their cars- which could have been borrowed from one of the MINIs older British cousins grill. Soon it seemed the classic style badges were too limiting in design or there wasn't just the right badge on the market to symbolize a specific event or country. Early adopters like MotoringBadges.com and a few others were first to market with a slew of round magnetic badges that attached to the official MINI badge holder. After the initial push from them and others it seemed like the market became flooded very quickly with every sort of grill badge for the MINI Cooper. Some were new and innovation sayings, shapes, images, icons or flags while others related to the club a MINI owner belonged to. In any case, they have become a staple in the MINI community and it seems that a MINI driving without a badge is naked or missing something.
If you're interested in getting a few badges for your MINI grill we've got a fantastic selection to chose from. Not only that but we offer a few different badge holders. Some mount to the grill while others mount to the license frame hardware. In any case you can display your badge collection for the world to see. Start with 1 and you'll soon find that they multiply- so beware!
