Hey. Welcome to MINI2.

What year is you MINI? as you say bodykit i'm guessing R50/R53 (2001-2006) as there are not many kits for the new ones.

The Cooper S bumpers/bodykit will fit a non-s however, you will need to get a cooper s exhaust. you can either get one off ebay (a standard one) or you can go to someone like powerflow or magnaflow and get a custom made exhaust put in the centre. however, if its the standard cooper s bumper you want to put on your cooper, the black un-painted trim comes off and you can replace it with your original cooper one.

fibreglass isnt really the best, as usually there is alot of work getting it to actually fit the car because of small variations.

oh...and i would go for a zeemax kit...really different but classy!

oh okay fair enough. you will need a lot of bodywork and a full re-spray to get it on as the wide arches are blended into the bodywork. As far as the exhaust goes - as i siad above, you can either go for a standard one off ebay or get a custom one - i think a custom one would be betther coz then you can get the right tips, bore size etc. if you want more advice about bodywork/kits/paint etc register on midzmodified.com, there are alot of people with show cars on there who have alot of good advice about stuff like this
