Customers' commentsI have so far ordered from this site 2 times. Had a glitch with my first order, emailed them, and PROBLEM SOLVED.OIn m,y second order, to make sure they sent out the correct item for my year mini, Aaron took the time to call me to confirm the information. They have awesome pricing on aftermarket Mini items and mods, and you simply cannot beat the
customer service!!! Deborah McMullin
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.

Bought, received, and installed. If you own a Mini Cooper... Bookmark this website. I purchase shocks for my hatchback and installed them in minutes.... MINUTES! Before I knew it they were here. I deliver pizzas and need my hatchback and it was so quick and easy. If you love your Mini like I do, this is the "Best Resource" website you can have. Owning your Mini is for the "Rich"... Love driving your Mini.... "It is a life changing experience". It is a feeling you never felt before, hard to explain... I love my girlfriend but my Mini takes me to places physically and emotionally is the only was to describe it. Mini is a "cliche"... It hold a HUGE part of my heart that can never be replaced. michael
