PostSubject: Spot Lights (:   24th January 2010, 11:16

For those of you that have spot lights what kind do you have? Is there any other option than genuine mini ones? Don't want to spend a fortune on these but want some decent ones, I'm after some chrome ones and will probably see if station view would be willing to fit them for me! Anyone have any links or info for meee Smile

Thanks in advance
Li xo

I have wipacs. They're exactly the same size as MINI ones to the point of the MINI covers fitting them!!

Everything is stainless steel and in over 2 years mine haven't a sign of corrosion. Can't rate them
highly enough.

This is where I got them from Li.

There's a wiring kit that I think you need too.

You wouldn't use the switch in this kit though as they need to be wired in so they come on with the main beam. Smile

Just have to make sure they only come on with the main high beam. Not dipped or sidelights. But if you ask svg to fit they'll sort it for you.

Ok
Li has changed her mind again possibly!

i have found a picture of a mini with a standard grill with chrome spots!

Now thinking chrome grille and spots may be too much :S

however after seeing Maxs black grille with the chrome surrounds i quite like that idea with the chrome spots!


Gah desisions!

advise greatly appreciated Smile

im pretty sure from MINI anyway, for the first gen minis the aero grill is just one piece of plastic so has black edges but im sure someone must make one...

OR get an aero grill and a chrome grill and swop them around a bit untill you get the desired affect ?!

Wipacs are the best, being stainless steel. Although they don't have ss brackets I am told? Which is a shame.

I have the MINI ones, got them fitted when I first bought the car. Paid over the odds £350 fitted, but touch wood they are still going strong, 5 and a bit years later. Mine are on an aero grill, so they stand out nicely.

would an aero grille on a black mini look odd with keeping the other chrome suffs chrome and chrome spots? :S
