Like a lot of people, we have not been running front license plates on our MINIs.  The new law, though, bumps the fine up to a maximum $200, so I suspect the police will start stopping people just for this reason.

The kit is all stainless steel and is the same as sold by MINI dealers.

One kit fit fine on 2011 Elaine's MINI Cooper, but not on mine, as I have a tow bar bracket installed.  Part of that installation removes the usual front tow hook attachment point.

I paid $47 + some freight, which was the cheapest I could find it online. 

$35 sale price would be fine with me.  Thanks.

Do you know if this would fit a 2016 R60S?

Purchased Mini Countryman S on 8/26/15.  Love it!

Skip does not frequent the forum a lot.

You can use the forum's messaging utility to send him a private message and see if he still has the kit for sale and knows the answer whether it will fit a 2016.

Not all the tow hooks have the same thread and pitch. You'd probably have to test it to find out.
