Where can I get new bonnet/boot badges to replace the "MINI wing" ones?

To put on my stripes, I had to temporarily remove the badges on the bonnet and boot. I want to put them back, but I wanted to know if I could find something other than the stock ones (to make mine a little different). Anyone know where I can get one?

I checked MINI Mania, but they don't seem to carry them. MINI Mania does have ones for the classic Minis, though, like this:

I swear I bought my CR/W MC partly due to the awsome new MINI logo!
Honestly it's got to be a contender for best car manufacturer's logo.
Would never change my badges.
Good luck in your search.

yeah love the badge, but just wanted to see if I had any options. Also, I'd like to know if I can get it cheaper than from the dealership (I think they charge $36 or something outrageous like that).

There are a couple of different badge options available on ebay. Do a search under Ebay motors-parts-mini cooper. I know I've seen some Carbon Fibre patterned badges.

you can probably buy them at a discount from classic, www.driveclassic.com they're a dealer that sells parts at a 20% or so discount, if you can't find anything better of course.

Magic 8-ball was correct. All be in awe of Magic 8 ball.

How about leaving it off and then having a rally esque stick on number plate!

I had my brother who is a graphic designer design me an oval shaped badge for the bonet. It is a replica of the original MK 2 Mini Cooper design.

Maybe you could talk to graphic person that could design you something.

Word of caution, the MINI symbols have 2 pin holes that help guide the MINI symbol into the correct spot on the hood. If you get a different symbol, there might not be any pins or there might be pins that don't line up with the holes on the hood.

Just be careful before you buy some that are different.
