My hitch for my R53 came in today and 3 hours later it is installed and the car is all back together. The fit and finish are excellent and I couldn't be happier with the product. The only problem I had is that the instructions mention zip ties and replacement trim mount clips but the little Baggie included in my box was empty. Someone forgot to pop the parts into the bag before tossing the bag into the box. Didn't really effect me because I didn't break any trim tabs and I have PLENTY of zip ties.
Thanks for a great and unique product that makes the ownership of our quirky little MINIs even better.

MINI COOPER JCW is the best amiongst all. Since I came to discover it, I even abandon my Mercedes C Class 200 compressor and even my Toyota Carina E. I really love it.
Every one around me admires that car which one in town. I have a sky blue Mini Cooper one JCW R50. It is nice to drive it. I really love it........................ Thanks to John COOPER WORKS.
I have purchased your stage 1 speed upgrade and the results are amazing.
Next I plan to add the header & exhaust. Also the brake upgrade.
Thank you for your research and advice.
I think it would be helpful if you also added a suspension replacement/upgrade option like your speed upgrades.
I am a pretty much amateur with all the products available, and as an owner of a 2008 convertible S will be needing to replace these components soon.
Please provide upgrade options.
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.
