is this possible? i was thinking of putting one on my cooper but the BMW dealer said it would not go on due to fitting problems, he later wouldnt sell me a bonnet cause they are "exclusive" to a cooper S. i can buy one elsewhere just wondered if anyone else had tried to fit one.

I'm with the why question. I spent ages trying to justify an S as I prefered the bonnet style of my Cooper. I loved it when washing the car and you were kneeling down washing the wheels and looked across the bonnet line in line with the headlights - I loved that styling with the much lower bonnet.

I WANT THE SCOOP lol. i love cars with turbo, i wanted a mini cooper S, but could not get one for insurance reasons as i was 19 when i bought one in march this year. im purposely making it look like an S, ive little details such as the side reapeaters and the bigger spoiler etc.

I think you've got a bit of a "Cooper Crush" thing going on there!!! ;)









"That S bonnet" is one of the main things that's stopped me getting an "S" :p :D

Rather than mess up your car, why not just wait?

Tch, kids today, when I was a lad you had a Talbot Alpine and were glad of it...

TBH there is a guy in my area with a cooper and he has the CooperS Bonnet and it looks a bit odd :rolleyes: , if I were you I would get the full kit, ie skirts, front and rear bumpers that way your Bonnet will not look as add ;)

I like the way MaRKaSaURuS is getting asked why he would want to do this from people who have put S filter caps and other mods on there Coopers, interesting.
Personally I think it wouldn't look good on the Cooper as the bonnet looks great as is and would certainly cheapen it when you come to resale.

If you have an S scoop on your Cooper, won't your engine bay get filthy fairly quickly? Is there some kind of filter to keep out the dirt/debris?

I agree with the previous statement, that you should get the full body kit to do the job properly.

If you are dead-set on the idea, you may be able to make use of the scoop as a cool air intake for an induction kit.

I have the "S" / ONE "D" side skirts and the "S" filler cap because, admit it, they are better than the coopers, and they are a style difference only. Why anyone would think a cutout that is just a hole in the bonnet (hood) with no style (because it was put there to serve a purpose on the "S" and that's it) looks good is beyond me! :rolleyes: Think how dirty and full of crap your engine bay will be if you don't cover the hole from within the bonnet!! :eek:

But then again, it is only my opinion. :p
