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.
*plasti-cote is your new best friend*
I got this light for my R53 Cooper S and the plug in for the harness did not fit the harness in the car. I needed to modify the circuit board and change the wiring harness in my car so that it would fit.
Swing, batter, batter, batter, SWING!
I always hit a home run with parts and great customer service from OUTMOTORING. Aaron and the gang are always helpful and they've got the goods I'm looking for. THANKS!!!

Synopsis: Keep the boredom at bay with the MINI float pen!
When you find yourself bored stiff in your next meeting this pen may
just entertain you enough to make it through....buy 2 and race the
floating MINI's through the cityscape backdrop...loads of fun. OR, if
you prefer the "Bulldog" version you can watch the bulldog will walk out
from his kennel across the grass and into the doghouse. Awesome. As a
bonus this pen also writes!! How cool is that?! Twist on/twist off
