    Default 2020 mini grille

    I don't remember seeing this grille when the teaser shots of the new clubbie went up a few months a go but recently saw a picture of the new grille on an F56 delivered to a dealer and imo it's absolutely hideous. The S and jcw don't look bad since they get a full honeycomb grille but the multiple bars,get a big no from me.Click image for larger version.

    Agreed - I've always preferred the bar grille on the R53 & R56 to the aero mesh but not keen on that. Looks a bit too Audi for me


    Feet were made to fit car pedals. If we were meant to walk, we'd have pogo sticks for legs

    It looks like a towel radiator.

    (Well... maybe not so much style).

    I've seen another picture of the new chrome grille and really didn't like it but the picture above isn't too bad. I think it could depend on the spec of the car.

    I saw a couple on the dealer stand down at MMM with that grille on and didnít think it looked too bad. It does look a little plasticy up close though.

    Looks too much current Ford grilles for me, one reason why I would not buy a Ford at present.

    I can see the likes of Mini Bitz and SMPS offering grille kits for this.

    Iím not too sure that Iíd like to be drying a towel on the front of Rocky up there at the mo with the weather that youíve been having Ali.

    It would be good for keeping the flies off the front in Summer but I think my temps may get a bit higher than Iím used to though.

    I donít mind the Clubby Grille but as always for me itíll be a pain to keep clean lol. I still prefer the original one though.
    The hatch one looks terrible in the photos but no doubt theyíll be a black out kit for it thatíll make MINI some money.
    Sometimes change for change sake isnít always the best thing ...

    You only need two tools in life WD40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should use WD40 and if it moves and shouldn't use Duct Tape.
