Ordered these on a Wed. and received them on Friday-excellent. Quality is very good and they look super. Way cheaper than OEM covers. Easy install, took about 5 minutes for both using a pampered chef plastic scraper. Don't hesitate, buy 'em.
Just purchased the Black "slat" Grill to replace the standard chrome slat grill on my R56, I installed it with the original chrome trim pieces, looks fantastic for $100. Not knowing what I was doing at first and it still only took 10 mins. to install.
Outmotoring.com is a great place for my Mini.
I have now one of the best Mini Cooper JCW in Switzerland, thank you Outmotoring:)
Checkered Flag Side Marker Housings for R55, R56, R57, R58, R59 MINI Coopers

Synopsis: You decide when the race is over!
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 Checkered
Flag Side Marker Housings for Gen 2 MINI Coopers are a winning option
to add some design detail to your MINI. Priced as a pair, theycompletely
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
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 an 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.
