Has anyone replaced the rear Cooper S badge and replaced it with the MINI Gloss Black kit. How easy was it to do? I'd like to get rid of the chrome on mine so will need to replace emblems, badges, etc.. I can see how to change chrome strip on grille with stick on cover and chrome on side repeaters and black inserts to S badges but can't see how easy it is to do the one on the boot/trunk lid.

I did. Was pretty easy. Heat up the current badge a bit with a hair dryer while using floss or fishing line to remove it.

Just got the badge from Cotswold BMW on eBay. Not sure about front, though haven't got round to doing it yet.

i agree, very easy to do. Place masking tape below original badge so you know where to fix the replacement.
Heat each letter with a heat gun or hairdryer and use fishing line very slowly behind each letter to remove them. I then used a little more heat to remove any remaining foam adhesive pad.
Finally a bit of paint renovator to remove any marks.
When your happy fit the new badge

Hi, where did you buy this badge and did you get a matching “S” for the front grill
Only thing I found for the front grille S was this. Doesn’t look like MINI do a genuine replacement in black..
Expensive for a tiny bit of thin plastic but there are discount codes available fairly frequently I.e bank holidays with 15 - 20% discount codes.
Looks fine when it’s fitted though 👍

I got some of my car mod part from my nearest mechanic. Very amazing service with low prices, with discounts as low as the ones found in Ebay. They're pretty neat and works well.
