Dawn who said that and why? The headlight housings are exactly the same apart from the black colour.

Dawn agree with Andy these are a straight swap.

Not the lci arnt with the adaptive lighting its a complete no go Sad Yes the housing are the same but the igniters ect are differnt The only poss option was the Hampton varaint but they wouldn't know untill I had ordered them & tried to fit but no gurantees

I trust the dealers I for was correct as it was looked into throughly

I really do not want to take all the chrome away, if I done the belt line, I'd have to do handles and fuel flap etc wouldn't I?

pauls is the best example! either go all black, belt line, handles, petrol cap, joey mod everything. or just stay chrome with a bit of colour coding eg, headlight rings. oh and jcw bumpers and skirts would set it off nicely.. or go in another direction with blue and white!!!!

Well....I like chrome.

All the old minis used to have a thing about chrome and I still like to see the chrome sparkling on mine....... Very Happy

I reckon just colour code the headlights to blue, and leave the rest as is. If not then black, if you go chrome you'll need to put the rest back to chrome I think, as the head lights look lost surrounded by the black scoop and grille.
