    I've been wanting to try this small mod to our 14 cooper S for a while:

    Yes! :biggrin5:
    It's a small piece of good quality black vinyl.

    I wanted to try it because I always felt weird the bumper was designed to nicely receive a EU plate. Since I'm in the US and in PA it was a little on my mind every time I looked at it...

    I'll live with it for a while and see if I like it better :wink:

    I like it. It brakes up the blue on the bumper.

    It DOES look good and is pretty unnoticeable, unless you are MCS02!:devil:

    Just keeping this section alive around these parts...
    On our way to Thanksgiving diner. It was a big bird . . . but not as big as the beauty of driving over Cumberland, MD mountains.

    Winter shoes on of course (Michelin Xice3):
