Replacing sunroof checkers and hood stripes

I have a 2010 Clubman that's been stored the past two years. It's finally out and I'm prepping it to be back on the road. I've decided to replace the vinyl as it's all in poor condition. So, replacing the sunroof graphics and hood stripes.

What I'm wondering is the best place to purchase these? Dealer? MINI-Mania? I also know that there are more creative options for the roof decal but looking for the best sites to purchase these from as I haven't detailed my MINI in 8 years!

Please advise

I've not ordered from them but they've been around for quite a while and any posts I've seen give them a good rating. The guy I ordered from folded his tent 5 or 6 years ago. You might do a forum search with their name for some feedback if you'd like. I've replaced my bonnet stripes twice and added boot stripes a few years back and it's easy to do if you take your time. The wet method allows for minor correction as you go.

Did you find a source for your roof top decals? My 2004 has a checkerboard roof the covers the roof and sunroof. The decals on th3 glass are pewlling up at the corners and I would like to replace.
