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.

Just received my most recent order from you guys and couldn't be happier. Not just with the trim pieces I ordered, but with the customer service and speed at which my products arrived.
Your online department to ask questions, has always responded quickly(even the dumb questions), and for a new MINI owner, that is truly appreciated.
This was my third order from OutMotoring, and look forward to many more. But since I have owned my 2014 Clubman for less than 2 months, my wife has put a moratorium on my purchasing more MINI accessories for a bit...
Sorry I can't be at the Dragon this year, but look forward to meeting you fine folks down the road.

Placed several orders with OutMotoring, F56 JCW Pro parts, front bumper kit for MINI GP R53. Shipping is always fast and all items arrived perfectly. Very happy and will continue ordering all my MINI needs from OM :)
