Shop by Your MINI Cooper Make and Model Number Designations

Since the inception of the BMW MINI Cooper in 2002,  more than a dozen different MINI models have been released.  This can make it a bit confusing to know what model you own.  As a result, we wrote this article to help you to determine the make and model designation of the MINI Cooper you have to make it easier and more convenient to find parts and accessories that fit.  Essentially, there are three generations of MINI Coopers - with generations marked not in years, but in changes in the models. 

If you're still unsure on what parts fit your MINI give our expert specialists a call at 1-800-946-2642 or send us an email HERE and be sure to include the last 7 digits of your VIN Number.  We will get back to you shortly with an answer to your fitment question.

1. Identify Your Model Designation (i.e. R53, R56)
2. When you know your MINI's model designation,  use the "Shop by Car" tool at the top of the page to set your MINI
