Do you have any more info/pics on the PIAA install? I've been dying to get some. Also how'd you do your lower aero grill? I can't seem to find any good info on installing it.

Thanks Nick! The piaa install was simple. U just need to order the mini cooper brackets for the fog lights and run the wires inside the car. I used the piaa light switch.


I had to cut the grill to fit the fog lights brackets but if your using the stock grill u should be fine.



To install the lower grill you will need to take off the front bumper. It's not that hard. 2 torque bolts in front 2 10mm bolts behind the side indicator lights and like 6 10mm on the bottom of the bumper by the splash guard.
