Description
Consider it a mini refrigerator for your MINI. The grill badge holder and more importantly the bazillions of magnetic backed custom grill badges that have flooded the market have created a underground club of collectors. I've talked to MINI owners that have over 50 badges and rotate them depending on their mood. Of course, in order to flaunt your style, your club, your whatever badge, you will need somewhere to stick it to and this is the best solution on the market.

The metal bracket mounts to your grille* and is easily removable and can be installed in just minutes. Durable black powdercoated finish is ready to rock. This was designed by me and is different than the other holders on the market in that the back has female pem nuts instead of having studs sticking out which makes it easier to fit the different grills on the market and is cheaper to ship, so we pass that savings on to you.

*Please note: on the 07+ Cooper (Cooper S does not require modification) hatchbacks the stock grill requires that two holes be drilled out to allow the 2 bolts to go through from the back. Use the longer bolts for this application. For some reason MINI decided to put a solid backing on the Cooper grill behind the chrome slats.

Two sets of bolts are included in each kit to allow fitment on both early and current generation MINIs.

Fits:
2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 Cooper S, (use shorter bolts) 9
2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertibles, (use shorter bolts)
2007+ R56 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtops, (use longer bolts)
2008+ R55 MINI Cooper and Cooper S CLUBMAN, (use longer bolts)

INSTALL:

On the Gen 1 MINI the grill does not need to be removed as the back is accessible once the hood is popped.

On the Gen 2 MINI's the 4 black plastic rivets come out in about 20 seconds each and the lower trim just pops off with a bit of force and there are a few giant "squeeze tabs" behind the trim and once those are released the whole grill pops off which allows easy access to the back so the badge can be installed.

See NMA7641 for grille badge holders to fit your 2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 Cooper S, and 2005-2008 R52 MINI Convertibles.

See G2NMX4550 for various badge options.

Great but with difficulty installing
By:
I bought this to make my R56 mini special. This product works great with any 3 inch magnetic badge. The only issue I have is the installing. The R56 grill is a bee hive pattern. So I followed the instruction and remove the front grill put the holder on and use the screw provided to tighten it to place. The screw (even though I used the short ones) were too long. After maxing out the screw it's still loose on the grill. Luckily, I save a rubber mount from the rear windshield wiper assembly (which I replaced) and placed it in there as part of the washer and it's held tightly now. Please check the length of the screw and see if you can send even shorter ones.
