I am extremely addicted to this store and have it saved on my favorites page on my browser. I've ordered many things here - I'll shop around and place my order and the following day I am back buying more stuff - it's better than shopping for shoes! This store has great customer service and fast delivery! I love making my Mini - PRETTY!! Thank you Out Motoring!!
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.

I just ordered the SIZE MATTERS badge. Actually I don't have a Mini but is for my Dodge Ram 1500 pick up. It's big.
