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.

I recently ordered some blackout rings for the tail lights on my F54 Clubman. Aaron and his team provided great service and support when I had an issue - organising a new set sent directly from the distributor to me in Australia. I have ordered from OutMotoring quite a few times over the years and this is the first quality issue I have ever experienced - having said that, with great customer service I have no hesitation in using them again.
Placed several orders with OutMotoring, F56 JCW Pro parts, front bumper kit for MINI GP R53. Shipping is always fast and all items arrived perfectly. Very happy and will continue ordering all my MINI needs from OM :)

Synopsis: Gotta get 'em all!
Please note: These badge inserts are designed to be used with the "Go
Badge" brand grill-mounted badge holder. However, they do have a magnetic
backing for use on standard badge holders as well. The additional weight of
these particular badges may be too much to stay in place just by the
magnetic force, so please use at your own risk if not installed with a
"Go Badge" brand badge holder.
Now that's out of the way. Feast your eyes on these sweet designs with a
very classy 'dome' clear lens that makes them look very upscale and
refined. When installed with the matching Go Badge Holder (sold
separately), the combo looks stunning. With a quick spin of the Go Badge
Holder trim ring, you can swap out your badge selection to fit the mood
of the day!
