Back box Bracket.

Hello all.
Just a quick question, my girlfriends mini had a replacement bracket fitted for the back box, it was done by a non BMW garage while we were on holiday (few months ago now) anyways, the exhaust was hanging low because of the snapped bracket, now, even with the new one fitted, it still doesn't sit in the gap in the bumper.
The car got serviced recently by a non BMW garage, i asked them if it was possible to sit the exhaust correctly in the bumper. After they looked into it, they say that there is nothing they can do because the bracket fitted is slightly different in size. Where can i get a correct sized bracket for for not too much money (only because it's annoying me not sitting in the gap!!!)

Regards,
Brad

If you search here for the correct bracket part number it can be ordered from your local MINI Dealer spares department:
RealOEM.com Online BMW Parts Catalog

Or an online Mini spares website may be cheaper than your local Dealer:
