Bit of a random one this... but I'm after a passenger side door trim (in anthracite), as mine has been damaged. I have a silver one to swap with should that be of any interest!
As to how it got damaged... long story, but if you've ever watched Distraction on Channel 4 on Friday nights you might have some idea! It was a slightly random entry for me into the mini owner's club!

Your not the bloke who won the car after getting about 3/4 questions wrong so it was trashed?
I don't have one myself but theres a breakers yard in Bury north of Manchester that specialises in MINI parts. Dunno address (as only driven there) but tel numbers are:
0161 761 1615
0797 184 5395

yeah... actually it was 3/5 questions wrong! Got questions for the windscreen and wing mirrors right, but got them wrong for graffiti along the side, smashing the headlights... and the worst one...(Name 4 films with the word 'fish' in the title) was the paint grenade that went off inside... and it's that I'm still sorting out!
Thanks for the info on the breakers yard...they're the guys I got the silver trim door panel from, mistakenly thinking I could change the anthracite bits, unfortunately don't think I can! They're recommended though, they've got loads of bits should anyone be interested. They're called Evolution and the guy to speak to is Chris. Another number for them is 0161 764 2020.
thanks though damo!

Thats a pretty evil thing to do.
Without wanting to depress you too much there are about six films that are just called "Fish" so if you had said "Fish" four times you could have saved yourself a lot of hassle.
Nice one on winning a car though. Hope you get it sorted.

I know jules.. you're quite right!
I got A Fish called Wanda, Big Fish and Swordfish... was stuck on the last one... took a guess at The Fisherman as time was running out - when the paint grenade went off and then Jimmy Carr said I could just have said 'The Fish' I was gutted!
Car is almost sorted... just the one body panel to be changed and I'm there. Hooked on the mini though... ordered myself a MCS and will try to sell the one I won in the next couple of months once it's mint again!
