Default 1st gen aero skirt adapters

Just making this thread as an FYI.

If you have purchased a set of 1st gen aero sides second hand, and they did not come with the part to secure them under the rocker there is hope.

You can not find any listed part number for this item. MINI USA says they only come with new aero skirts.

Wrong. You can purchase the aero skirt adapters for the 2nd gen aero skirts and mount them no problem. There is no cutting required.

Sorry if this is old news

You mean to fit the 1st gen aero on a 2nd gen MINI?

i think he means they didn't change brackets between generations, so the brackets for 2nd aero skirts fit 1st gen skirts.

I had this trouble had a set of 1st gen aero skirts without the black adaptors, but the adaptors from the 2nd gen are exactly the same and you can buy them separately where as you can't buy the gen 1 adaptors separately...

here are the part numbers
