Got the Aero kit painted
Painted behind the upper grille
For some reason, the Aero skirts have a lot less clips than the standard skirts
This pic is before I cleaned properly the bumper trims, so colour match of black textured paint isn't great in this pic
Rear bumper off
Standard vs Aero rear bumpers, this highlights the newly painted parts are a little lighter
Even though I already have washers under the exhaust mounts, I'll need even more as the Aero rear bumper sits closer to the exhaust
Getting it painted cost me £330.
The Aero kit is of not fantastic quality (it's genuine BMW/MINI)...
Side skirts - why fewer clips?
Front bumper - no proper place to attach temperature sensor WTF, the fixings on the underside are near impossible to get to (mind you, they're not much better on the standard bumper), no mounting points at back of bumper for number plate screws like standard bumper.
Rear bumper - WTF is that bodge of a bracket? Why couldn't it be the same as the standard bumper?
