I presume this car only has a chili pack, and nothing extra? When I google chili pack minis they don't seem to have the same bumpers. I'm trying to find a replacement decal set for the rear bumper but I'm not sure...
Also can anyone tell me if the tailpipe is just a normal mini one please?

That's the Aero kit which would've been a dealer fit option (front and rear bumpers, and skirts - not part of the Chili Pack), and the exhaust looks like the standard Chili exhaust trim to me. :)

Thanks very much, explains a lot. Just about to order a cheapo exhaust to get through the MOT from ebay and hopefully the exhaust trim will transfer :)
Any idea where I can get replacement decals from apart from BMW? There was a guy on here selling them (minipirate.com) and they were apparently much better than BMW.
Also need a replacement aero kit front grill ... I wish she'd drive more carefully :D

Have a look at Welcome! (http://www.stickyfingersdecals.com), mainly aimed around the classic mini but if you send him a picture and sizes he will make them for you.

Yeah, MINI Pirate was the go-to guy for replacement Aero decals, but he's not trading anymore unfortunately...
Not sure if anyone else is offering a non-OEM replacement, but it's certainly worth asking around. Failing that, MINI will sell you more of the originals.
The replacement grille (top and bottom bits) is about £50 from BMW/MINI if memory serves me correctly, although they occasionally show up on eBay for less. :)
Oh, and the exhaust trim should transfer fine.

Wonderful thank you :)
£50 not too bad new, will consider it when we're doing cosmetics. Need to fit a new engine first and get an MOT lol.
Will start an ebay search for bmw mini aero and see what turns up.
