R56 Grille Question

Hi All..

I have bought a 2nd hand JCW grille from Flebay, and have a question about the top and bottom Grille Trim..

I tried a test fit last night and the bottom trim isnt interchangeable from the stock Cooper one.. Are there any non OEM versions to replace it? Also will the original Bonnet trim still fit ok or do I have to replace that too?

Thanks

I bought an aerokit grill for my (then) MC a long while ago to replace the chrome slatted grill.

I think this is the bit you need. It's straight swap - all surrounding bits fitted w/o modification.

Lots of people at the time were buying the JCW grill and finding it didn't fit...

Looking on RealOEM the part number is 51110442012

Hope this helps

Thanks...are there multiple versions of the aero grille because the bottom chrome trim off the original stock grille doesnt fit?

A long time ago but I seem to remember that this was why the JCW grille didn't fit any other R56 and the aerogrill did.

I presume you're trying to fit an R56 JCW grill to an R56 Gen 2 variant?

I've got an idea that the JCW apron is unique to the JCW grille and won't fit any other variant but that the R56 aerokit will fit all the others. I'm hoping that another forum member will have info to confirm this?
