You can buy it here. And yah, you could easily paint it the normal gp color scheme.

Chase they also have the duckbill style spoiler you always like on civic hatches on this page too.

They may be able to offer you better prices. The prices I posted are in japanese yen, so they may include all the extra taxes, customs charges, and shipping from HI->Japan. If it's a hawaiin company, they may really be $600 bumpers or something more reasonable.

Contact a MINI dealer near you and see if they will order the part for you absent a vin number. You may just get it......never hurts to just ask.

Any updates on this? I am attempting to order the GP rear lip and hope to have no issues through pelican parts. Guess we will see.

The hatch is just so sexy to me because of the brake light. I always wanted to score either one of those or run something like the cabrio 3rd light, built into the beltline. Wonder if that'd be doable in the coupe?
