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.

A note of appreciation from our MINI club...
This year we raised $1,091 for charity that we donated to the area food back and a local pet shelter. Your generous donation of merchandise helped make this possible. (I was very happy to have won the stubby antenna!)
Thank you again for your generosity and the great variety of merchandise you sent.
We had about 40 MINIs at the car show and great weather -- that got everyone in a generous mood and got us over the $1,000 goal. A fitting end to an awesome summer. Thank you again!
