Bienvenidos! Your wiring does look like a big mess. Good luck with the project.

Very nice Mini Cooper S!

I replaced the chrome grille with a satin matte black one from eBay.
The chrome one looked alright, but there was no other chrome accents on the truck. I think the black one suits it better?

Looks good!I am of the same opinion as you!Also have a black grill as there are no other chrome parts in my car.
Those wheels look nice ,maybe will look even better with some spacers on the rear..

Those are my after-market winter wheels and tires (20x8.5") with Pirelli Scorpions.
I can't wait to put my summer wheels on.....(20" staggered) "picture below"....
