You might have seen the MINIs during the Olympics and read about the special edition MINIs that are available in the UK. The update to that post is that one of the Olympic accessories can be had in the States. That accessory you can see above, the only set of Olympic sides scuttles in the US and **only** available at MINI of Ontario!
They are’t cheap (about $140 shipped), but if you are looking to have something on your MINI that **nobody** else has, give our man Mr. MINI Parts a call at 866-783-0075 before anyone else to get that set for your 2nd generation MINI.
We all know that MINI and BMW have a huge part in this year’s Olympic games and are partners helping to support the USA’s Olympic efforts. Knowing that, it makes sense that the Olympic torch would actually pass through the MINI Plant in Cowley.

The Olympic Flame is now on day 52 of a 70-day relay involving 8,000 torchbearers covering 8,000 miles.
