any recommendations? at 103k miles, what should i be looking out for? i have noticed a "clicking" noise comming from the firewall on the driverside when its first started and cold.

anyone have some descent links or recommendations for fog lights, and rear fog lights? my toggle switch plate has 2 unoccupied spots, and would like fog lights.

i'm used to japanese cars, and other german cars parts, but what are some popular after market makers for mini's? what are some popular wheel makers? might be odd to but some "japanese market" rims on a mini ( such as rays volk racing, mugen, sparco, etc) i'm sure there is the obvious makers such as BBS, borbet, etc, but what does the "mini-world" revolve around?

Genuine mini parts are the best if you can afford them.

You can find OEM part numbers for the front fog lights, rear fog light and center console switch unit on RealOEM.

I'm not sure if you need any wiring looms.
