  2. First Generation MINI One
    Just joined the Mini Fan Club with the purchase of my first Mini. Car's in great shape but the small bumpers that support the daytime/fog lamps are broken. Can anyone point me in the right direction for replacements? They screw into the bumper from the backside, just below the hood to help...
