I thought it would be considered part of the grill surround but can't find anything of the sort. Anybody know what it's called and how easy it is to replace? I'm looking to part-ex and it will no doubt get knocked down by more than the repair would actually cost.

Quick Google suggest they're about £80 for a new one. Knowing MINIs, fitting it will be a doddle.

Use realoem.com to find the exact part number for your car. Find a new or used on eBay. Find a fitment video on YouTube.

Job jobbed.

How on earth did you find that? I can't find the actual part for the life of me!

Well, I was going to use realoem and find it for you, but you gave a very small picture of your car and absolutely no helpful information at all! laugh

So instead, I went onto eBay and typed ‘Mini F56 Front Bumper Number Plate’ (or something like that) and bosh, loads of them. Looks like the right bit, but, as I say, use realoem to be sure.

Good luck wink
