Pretty sure that's the same one without the insert piece under the headlight. I could see it looking okay on an agressive MCS, but it's just not for me.

looks to be less of a gap between the bottom of the bumper and the splitter section on the 2nd bumper

Agreed. Same bumper with no insert and a higher perspective angle.

I wonder what the side profile looks like with that bumper. The overhang might look even longer

I think that JDM look on a MINI would get old fast.... Needs less over accentuated scoops and lips and definitely not 10 additional light sources.... So far the best option would be the Cooper bumper on the S imho.... Hope Duell can turn it down a few notches.... They make really nice products.... But they don't seem to want to make a dull bumper... It's gotta have a ton of air scoops...

This is reportedly available in September from MINI….

JCW exhaust with carbon tips and bi-modal feature controlled with a bluetooth remote from inside the car. From what I understand it has two modes:

Number 1, which produces a sound identical to the stock S exhaust.

Number 2, which bypasses the rear silencer and sounds like this:

The crackles are amazing - I will be ordering for certain! :lol:

Not a fan. Kinda looks like one of those bad Chinese copies of a real MINI.

You know it's bad when even the japanese tuning companies like duell and mon can't make the new MINI look good
