Has anyone fitted one of these...

Black Grille

It will be fitted to a standard R50 Cooper, it mentions modifying the bumper but not how to do it, anyone got any experience or tips

Regards

I'm not sure what type of modifications you have to do to the bumper but I know you have to take the bumper off to fit is.

if your fitting the aero grille ive heard you have to take the bumper off, but u only have to modify the lower grill bit to sit flush in the bumper if you understand me..... the bonnet grill is straight forward.. just undo the self tapping screws... you may have to undo them buy easing them off with a screw driver.... the lower one is the harder bit were you have to trim down the clips to make is sit level... mine was helod on with clips and double sided tape
