    I have a 2009 mini cooper s that is missing the entire front bumper assembly

    I am thinking about replacing it with a jcw front bumper

    are there different kinds as in one without fog lamps or is it one jcw front bumper which uses the same foglamps as the standard cooper s


    thank you

    This might be helpful. I also have a 2009 and I replaced the standard "S" bumper (Skin) with the JCW Aero bumper skin. The "S" fog lights need to be used with the Aero bumper.

    When you say it's missing the front bumper, you do mean the skin correct? You still have all of the bumper impact beam structure correct?

    Here is the thread I started.... I got my JCW Aero bumper from Aaron at Outmotoring.... He's a great guy....:D

    As Metalman said, they use the same fog lights. If you do get the JCW bumper I would suggest getting it with the brake cooling package. The only additional needs you will have to install it is to cut the fender liners where the ducts meet up to them.

    I suggest that you give Aaron a call at Outmotoring. He has set a bunch of us up with JCW front bumpers and he understands what is needed and what is compatible.
