I've been ordering parts from Outmotoring's site for a few years now after having some bad experiences from other Mini part sites. Although I have only had a few order errors, Outmotoring has corrected it quickly both times. If 'to err is human' than Outmotoring is 'more human than human'. Keep up the good work guys and I'll keep buying from you!
I have spent roughly 400-500 dollars with Outmotoring since the purchase of my 1st Gen MCS. I have only had one small issue with paypal not working to complete the order correctly, which was solved as soon as I emailed them. Great customer service, and excellent products at good prices. I will continue to shop with Outmotoring for anything I need for my MINI.
Ordered for the first time. My order arrived quickly and packaged with care. The headlight rings were easy to install and so were the tail light trim. Amazing product. Ordering again for sure. Thank you out motoring!

Synopsis: Connect your smart phone (android/Iphone) to your MINIs (R50, R52, R53) radio to expand your motoring music selection.
It seems I am never quite happy with the music and banter that fills my ears while listening to the local radio shows as I motor around town. Having access to the thousands of digital music files and being able to control my smartphone through the steering wheel controls and radio is my preference. Some Gen2 MINI models have built in or optional USB ports which allow you to simply plug in your android, iphone, smartphone or nearly any other device and control the music stored on the device. Gen1 MINI owners (R50, R52, R53) have to get a bit more creative to achieve the same results. Luckily OutMotoring has a few solutions for you to chose from!
1- The more advanced Auxiliary module that connects the back of the radio and has 3 inputs (USB and 2 aux) that work with tons of the smartphones on the market when the correct cable is used. This type of connection will allow control of the device from the radio or steering controls.
2- The basic Auxiliary input cable simply allows a audio connection to the radio but will not not allow control of the device from the radio or steering controls.
I would review all of these products, read the descriptions and see what is most important to you and what features you need. In any case, just being able to control what music plays while you drive will be a major upgrade.
