Recommendations for a supplier for a Se7en grille and bumper?
Permalink  
 


Seriously pi553d off today, some git reversed into my Mini while it was in a supermarket car park and didn't even leave their details.   They must have known they had done it as there is a big dent in the grill and front bumper.

 

It's a late model (year 2000) Se7en and was pretty much spotless before today.

 

Can anyone recommend a supplier for a front bumper and grill which:

a)  fit

b)  won't have such crap chrome that they start to rust the same day as they are fitted

 

Thinking of maybe taking the opportunity to swap the grill for an early style one - again looking for recommendations for suppliers if I do and if anyone has a late model Se7en with an early grill them please post up a picture so I can see how it would look.

 

Many thanks!

Well I bought a new 'original' Rover grille to replace the one on my 500, and I got it from our friends at South Lakes mini centre. Its actually heavier / better quality than the original Rover one! They will hopefully be at Brooklands and they may well have the seven type grill with more slats with them. Think this is the one http://www.southlakesminis.co.uk/dhb102140ss-classic-mini-grille-1993-p-77820.html

Thanks but I got one at the local Mini specialist (Minispeed) = It's a late Cooper one so less slats but I couldn't bear driving round with the gamaged original and wanted it looking tidy for the Brooklands show next weekend (hopefully it won't be snowing / raining at Brooklands that day!
