Hi, I have just had my Cooper S bumpers fitted to my One, a question my BF wants me to ask is, is it worth changing the arch liners as the standard One liners appear to be 'not flush' with the new front bumper

They should fit.

My one inner arch liners fitted witht he cooper s bumpers.

There is a groove on the bumper arch that the lining has to sit behind. Try that

Thanks Darth, they sit behind the bumpers, just not all the way to the bottom of the lower apron, theres is a gap where the lower bend in the liner doesnt match the lower stance of the new bumper..... i think it will be ok but just wqant to make sure

do you all have centre exit tail pipe exsausts on your cars then? or does the standard bottom part of the liner fit 2, accomadating a side exit?

i was thinking of buying a cheap set of S bumpers instead of an aero kit, but the exsaust issue put me off.

if you have a pre 54 reg then the bottom plactic trim off your original bumpers can unclip and clip straight onto the Cooper S bumpers. If you have a facelift then sorry this isn't possible as the Cooper/one trim is a different shape to the S bumper.

(I see you've got Indy Blue so it will be fine) Do it!

I did it to my old 53 reg One back in 2004!

i have the centre exit exhaust, cost me £100 off ebay...brand new!!.... bought brackets from a scrappy and bf fitted it, took about an hour as he prepared all the holes through the boot floor prior to removing the old box.... sounds loads better than before :eek:)
