Front Grille: Alternatives To JCW Black Plastic One?
I'm thinking more and more about buying a brand new MINI JCW, but haven't made my mind up on the colour... which is a big decision on a £25k car that I'll keep for the long haul.
Anyway, with Pepper White/ Black cars I don't mind the grille so much (although I'm not 100% convinced that the colour won't be perceived by others to be too girly), but with Dark Silver/ Black I'm really not keen on the all-black look at the front. Actually, I never liked the grille on the old cars that had a bodykit fitted - too plasticky IMO.
I appreciate that many people will love it, but are there any alternatives and does anyone know if the grille from another model of MINI or 3rd party supplier will fit okay? Also, has anyone else changed the grille and are there any pictures? The standard grille is just too plain I think, and it would look better to me if the surround was silver or something.
