Hi'ya all.

I've herd a rumour that BMW are to bring out a Clear White lense for the new rear configuration.
Can anyone confirm this.

Depending on a meeting tomorrow with BMW I may be having a new MINI on order before too long.
What colour I have would depend on if I could get these clear rear lights again.

Can anyone help. :D

Didn't they have problems the first time around with the law insisting that they came up with additional reflectors to go in the back bumper? For this reason they came up with a Mk I style light with just the indicator in white and the rest in red.

I believe that you can , or will shortly be able to, order your Mk II with white indicators only in the same way. Does this mean that they will never produce an all white unit?

I'd be interested to know when an aftermarket manufacturer comes up with a completely LED tail light assembly. Only a matter of time, I should think. Would that look cool? :cool:

Tigger.

I saw a picture and the factory fitted red/white lights are bascily the same as they are now, just the orange bit for the indicator is now white. It's a £35 or there abouts factory option.

Not heard of an all white version.

I had the white lights on my ONE, but when I tried to have them swapped to my 05 Cooper it wasn't possible. My dealer did say that in January there will be a new style white light kit available (Jan builds onwards).

Scooby Doo, this is Mikey were taking about though. All you need to do is remove the (old) silver fog light bulbs in the white clear lights (saving one of them for the fog light in the new position) and replace them with clear bulbs i.e. white light). Then bug the pre 05 Clear reverse light houseing. Or mikey can re-wire it for you.
