Hi Folks.

I have a question for you all.....When you order your MINI and specify the bonnet stripes as an option are they fitted by the factory or done at the dealership.

The reason I am asking is that we're due to take delivery of our Cooper D in VO,black roof and black alloys and stripes on this Thursday and they have one outside that looks like it could be ours apart from the bonnet stripes as this did not have them fitted nor did it have the chrome exterior pack like we ordered please please tell me that the factory fit the stripes as the spec from what I could see is like ours minus the chrome and the stripes.:(

As this looks like it could be a another dealer error.

Thanks in advance for responding.:)

I had stripes and yes having been to the factory can confirm they are fiitted there as long as the dealer doesn't mess your order up. If they do they all seem to have a stripe man. They often fit their own which are very good copies and are usually cheaper than mini originals. For egs my wife bought a black roadsters s. She wanted red jcw stripes and the sticker man did them for£60 and you really can't tell the difference. Don't worry if the dealer is doing them it will be great whatever!
In terms of sticker longevity it says in the handbook when you polish the car DONT polish the stickers else they fade. We had a mini Highgate cabrio for two years and no vis sign of any degradation so I really don't think you need worry. Likewise mini originals are 80 and most sticker guys will redo them for £60. At least in Lincoln. And they look identical to me!
