I have the same question, have just got new Cooper in black and want to get the JCW black honeycomb grille for front of car without installing full aero kit. Cos I like them blacked out. Mini dealers will not sell grille separately from aero kit. I know the bottom grille will need some alteration. Can any1 help with this?
We are able to offer the aerokit grille conversion. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the grille on a Cooper S, although we definitely have fitted one to Cooper S's so we know they're a good fit. Your best bet at this stage for pictures is certainly our gallery, I'm sorry we don't seem to have taken more shots of it!
We do have grilles in stock currently and can deliver next day. If you're interested, feel free to email me email@example.com or place an order directly online.
I fitted one last night from Lohen. I would ideally love the aero kit but its more money than I can afford.
It was not too hard a job to be honest. getting the upper grill off was the hardest as I had spotlights and they were not coming off so I got angry and chopped them off, probably should not have done that and jsut sold them on...oh well. Other than that I would say no more than an hour job!
It looks loads better. I will post a pic of what it looks like once I get home.
I have a cooper and am thinking of getting the grille myself. Now the link above that takes you to Lohen... would that be a straight fit (no cutting)?
and i do have fog lamps on my current chrome grille, do i need special brackets to fit them? or can i use my existing brackets?
