sweet little product. matches perfectly.
install is tricky, you can't just stuff it in there. i loosed my lower center console (2 screws in cup holders and 2 under mirror adjusters) then removed the lower screws on the pillars. that let me pull everything forward and create enough room to stuff it back there.
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.

Received my headlight rings and start button covers in record time. Which was awesome. A suggestion would be to send instructions with the products. Otherwise experience was awesome.
When will you get the Tachometer covers in checkered flag for the countryman? Please advise.......

Synopsis: Dress your engine bay to impress!
When I installed this Kingsborne Firebraid Ignition Wire Set on my Gen 1 MINI Cooper S, I was quite
impressed by the refined throttle response and smoother acceleration.
For such a minimal amount of money, the results were great. Custom cut
to fit the MINI perfectly, this set is a compliment to the MINI engine
bay. 8mm specially-wound core. Yellow, Red, Black or Blue Silicone with
1200 degree "Firebraid" shielding. These are a great upgrade from worn
or damaged stock plug wires and super easy to replace. It's also a good
idea to replace the spark plugs at regular intervals. Check out our
selection of plugs in the 'Ignition' section.
All terminals/connectors are Beru which are designed to OEM
specifications. BERU branded quality connectors are totally waterproof,
resistant to corrosion and vibration, and very reliable. Overall this is a
fantastic set of plug wires, installs in just minutes and carries a
