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.

Purchased many things from you and have had nothing but great service. My only complaint is the mini countryman carbon fiber covers I received. They provided a glue with it that youre supposed to apply to the back, I did and now my carbon fiber covers are ruined as is the finish on my hood, I dont know what type of glue this is but it doesnt seem to make the covers stick only leak everywhere, so thats 150 out of my pocket to have this stuff buffed off my car.
I had a bit of disappointment today when my new hitch arrived - it was not the correct model for my car.
In retrospect, I looked back at the ordering page and found that it was my mistake but I could see why. I searched for a hitch for a Mini-S R53 and it took me to a 1001 which is for a non-S R50. The model numbers for the hitches and the cars they match up with were at the very bottom of the page, which I didn't see when ordering. It would have been very helpful if the drop-down menu had not just the hitch model number (1003) but the car model as well (R50, R53...) to help avoid this confusion.
It cost me return shipping and another week or more of wait. Not fun.

Synopsis: starting at $6.99!
There are some communities that have prohibited the use of the typical
"water hose and bucket" method to wash your car due to drought and water
restrictions. There are also communities that don't want the run-off
going into the storm drains. How about when it's freezing outside but
you really want to wash your vehicle? Now what? Instead of whining about
it, Griot's Garage has developed a process that will leave your car spotless,
even if you have a heavy road film on your vehicle! Simply squirt on
Spray-On Car Wash and gently wipe off to a deep shine. Spray-On Car Wash
clings to the side panels of your vehicle and breaks up the road grime
quickly. It also has great lubricity, wicks off fast, and buffs out to a
fantastic shine. What can I say? It works so well, and is so gentle to
the environment, it's even green! It is recommend to be used with the
specially developed Spray-On Car Wash Towels. These towels are
incredibly soft and keep potentially harmful grit away from the paint
