Side Scuttles

Shot next to the missing trim piece, just for you

As you can see from the example above, you could say I’m way overdue for replacements. The other side is completely broken as well so it is definitely time.

I’m always amazed when there are huge arguements about them. I mean, it’s just some ornamental trim on the side of the MINI. But, amazingly, when swapped with the OEM units, it does make a huge difference. On my car, the originals were black with orange lenses. I don’t want to put them back.

So, what say you? Should I stick with Chrome? Should I put the stock ones back on, maybe with white lights? Should I do something crazy?

Comments are open. What say you?
