Firstly, apologies for not posting to a more specific forum. I am a new member and novice! I have 2 questions:
- best/safest/most economical way to remove bonnet stripes (one of mine is starting to peel at the top)

- best smartphone holder for a mini cooper?
Thank you 馃檪

Bonnet stripes - apply a little heat with a heat gun or hairdryer to soften the glue on the back, gently peel until stripes are off, clean residue glue off bonnet with a tar and glue remover (Tardis is great)/ pure alcohol/ WD40 then polish area :)

Thanks Robby, I'm still in 2 minds whether to get the stripes replaced. I think it's getting my mini jet washed that may have damaged the stripes. I've never had a mini before, and was not advised NOT to use a jet wash. However, looking on forums, it seems jet washes are a no no! 馃毇
