Well, there are several reasons. Most people I think do it because they like the look. I'm one of those people and when I get my Mini soon, I'll definately be adding them to it.howardpm said:This might sound like a dumb question, but why would you need these? Personally I think they just make the frog of the car a bit ugly (personal opinion) why not just get the Xenon Lights, those are as bright as anyone would need.
Well that's not good. Does anyone make covers for the daytime?moorlockx said:>>>Do you know the manufacturer of these factory lamps? It's inevitable that a lens will get whacked by a rock sooner or later.<<<
The lights are made by a company called Jute. Last I read there is no replacement lenses made. You catch a rock it's new light time.
Thanks for the info, vagt6! That'll be great if mine comes with them. If not, I'll ask my dealer.vagt6 said:Hey MarkS, my MINI driving lamps came with black plastic covers. It's very durable, thick plastic that fits the lamps perfectly, and has "MINI" in raised black letters on front.
BTW, these lamps appear to be a standard size, I'll bet that lenses may not be too hard to find if they get broken.
If anyone has info on replacement lenses, please post!
