I never liked the leather boot and it was always dirty and a pain to clean. I bought one of these and had it painted and it loogs great and is very easy to keep clean. It also provides a place to set stuff.
I'm new to MINIs, but so far outmotoring.com has been my go-to source. Aaron has been more then helpful on several occasions. I'll continue to give him my business and would recommend anyone do the same.
My comment has to do with placing an order this weekend for less that $10 of products I tried paying with paypal three times and all three times it let me into the paypal system after logging in with my info for paypal then handed me back to your system at my shopping cart with the items still there and no order as if I never went through the process to pay with paypal. I finally opted to pay via my credit card and the system accepted the payment type and completed my order. Was this caused by a glitch in the system or what was the deal? My final order number is order #106762 which is the only one of four attempts in the end to be successful.

Without a doubt, Out Motoring is the best aftermarket retailer I've worked with. I came in to buy some small parts. I mentioned that I needed a few of the nutcerts for my Mini. One part that I needed had to be shipped to me. When it arrived they had included the nutcerts.
This Christmas they worked with my father to get my new DDM air intake to me by Christmas, despite it being back ordered most places.
Today I ordered a few more parts I needed before taking my Mini into the shop. They were shipped out within 6 hours of placing the order.
Out Motoring is my go to shop.
Yes, silicone hoses are better than stardard rubber hoses.

Synopsis: Get silicone radiator hoses when you need to replace stock hoses.
A customer just called and asked about getting replacement factory radiator hoses for his 2003 MINI Cooper S. While we can get any OEM factory part that MINI offers there are often good reasons NOT to buy OEM parts. In the case of interior cabin filters, spark plugs, plug wires, exhausts, suspension components, radiator hoses and a BUNCH of other items it just doesn't make sense to buy OEM parts. As is common with many aftermarket parts, you can upgrade a worn out factory part to a better quality and longer lasting part for the same or less money. With radiator hoses it's a wash in price but at the end of the day the silicone is a better option because it will outlast the lower quality OEM rubber replacement hoses by a longshot. Another thing to consider is that the kit we offer has multiples hoses to replace the most common hoses to fail. Save yourself some time and tons of hassle by just replacing a bunch of the radiator hoses at once. It will save another trip to the shop with the same labor charge as well another round of radiator fluid (which is quite expensive). Select from Red, Blue or Black to match or contrast your MINI!
