I need to sort Chilli's xenon bulb for her up & coming MOT. Just found these on ebay & they look promsing. I have checked the details as per the listing & the match my old/orig.

Is this a bargin or a waste of money Confused scratch

The technical details say Mini 2001 to 2006 so appears they will not be suitable for 2nd generation! That is me out!!

Only thing I am not sure if the is a difference between facelift & pre facelift as NOTHING STATED but there is a difference I believe.

I would need for a pre facelift

Just really trying to avoid paying £150 from the stealers but already had one unsuccessful cheaper alternative not being 100% perfect Sad No

I would say they seem a bit too cheap tbh!

I could be wrong, but I don't think the pre and post facelift are any different Dawn. The second gen's are different, as they are Bi-Xenons Smile

Might be worth a call to your dealer just to ask if pre and post first gen's are any different, then at least you'll know - you could give Mikey at New MINI Stuff, or Chris at Woodmans a call and ask them Smile

Have you tried MINI Matt to see if he has any bulbs too?

I believe there is a difference but not sure, Think that's why the one I have doesn't fit 100%


Yeh that's my thinking to good for the £

Are they actually Xenon bulbs or replacements for Halogen called Xenons scratch

They also say about a pair needing replacing so the same colour light Exclamation

Can't see how they can make them for that price Exclamation all abit unbelievable Shocked
