Just did the retrofit of the additional LED lighting that comes with the MINI Yours interior packages, as long as your car has the Lights Package option 563 and the MINI Excitement Pacakge option 4V9 this retrofit is possible as the wiring for the additional LEDs are already there. I believe all F56's up to MY2016 have the wiring already there.

Nice..
Any particular problems / tools popping the door cards off?
The only hard part was removing the old trim from the door panels, because they are plastic welded, drilling them out. The only tool I used to pop the door panel was a trim removal tool just to pop the panel enough to get my hands behind the panel, and just pull and it will pop off. The clips are very sturdy.:)

I will list the parts numbers when I get into my office tomorrow.
You do need the purchase the entire trim piece which is 2 per door to have the LED light guides which are plastic welded to the trim. I do not know if you can get the light guides separately. If you can get it there would still be the problem of attaching the light guides to the old trim piece which is entirely different from the ones that come with the guides already installed. Anyways our door cards already have the opening for where to feed the light guide through and the mounting on the back side for the led modules. You need 2 LED modules per door for a total of 4. Each LED module feed the 2 separate parts of the trim.
The plugs for the LED modules are also already there. They are just taped up as in the photos.
Just to reiterate your car must have options Lights Package (563) and MINI Excitement Package (4V9), to have the correct harness.
I do not know if cars without these two options have the correct wiring.
The trim pieces I know can be ordered in Piano Black and Off-White. I also have see the part number for Dark Silver but it seems those are not available anymore.

I recently completed this project on my 2016 2-door cooper. Fortunately, my doors had no extra trim pieces pre-attached so I did not have to 'drill them out'. I just had to drill the holes through the door cards with my cordless drill and then insert the trim pieces, connect the additional LED light modules to the extra wiring connections that were not being used already, and then secure the trim pieces with the metal axial clips. I decided to take the trim pieces that went around the interior door handles and door speakers to a local auto paint shop to have them professionally pained gloss black to match the new trim pieces I was installing.

Painted door handle trim:
74466


Painted speaker trim:
74467


74469


Detailed view of how back end of trim pieces are secured to the inside of the door cards with metal axial clips (I pushed them down onto the trim pegs with a small rachet bit:
74470


The front "swoosh" trim piece secured with metal clips and the new LED lighting module (I used some black electrical take to make sure there would not be any unwanted light bleed-thru.
74471


Rear trim piece secured to door card and new LED module:
74472


New led module with the optical conductor inserted into the lighting module. The door card had a clip built into it to snap the LED module securely in place.
74473


New led module with the optical conductor inserted into the lighting module. The door card had a clip built into it to snap the LED module securely in place.
74474


It was not until after I started this project that I realize there was a third unused lighting connector in each door. I was confused about what this was for but further research revealed this is for a light to shine in the lower door pocket with a third LED module and a small u-shaped optical connector. So I ordered two more LED modules and the little clear plastic optical connectors and installed those after they arrived a month later. Those required no drilling as the clips to attach the light and plastic u-shaped optical conductor are already in the back of the door card and the little hole for the light to shine into the door pocket is already there.

Clips to attach LED module and u-shaped optical conductor for bottom door pocket.
74475


With LED module installed but still missing the u-shaped LED optical conductor. One end snaps into the LED module and the other end inserts into the 'starburst' plastic circle on the back of the door pocket. There is a small hole (maybe 2-3mm) that the end of the optical conductor sticks through to shine some light from the back of the door pocket. The white box on the far right of this photo is the light that shines onto the ground from the bottom of the door if you are trying to figure out where this is inside of the door.

You're welcome! I will try to take a couple more pics once it gets dark outside in a few hours, it looks awesome at night but really is not visible in the daytime. (the lighting, not the trim pieces themselves...)
