There's a MINI Dealership in Berlin-Mitte in Friedrichstraße 191-193, but it's just a showroom for new MINIS.

The main MINI Dealership is in Berlin-Tiergarten, Huttenstraße 50. I'm still inquiring on the possible pickup procedures, but if you order upfront you could have the parts delivered to the nearest dealership for pickup.

I just got the contact details of the manager responsible for parts and accessories and will give him a ring on monday.
wow, thanks for the work in getting the information, i will definitely follow thru and pick up a set of the arches.

I don't even know where you're located, somewhere in Germany? What can I bring you/send to you for all your help? What do you want/need?

I'll be in berlin week of may 4th-10th.

I live right next to Frankfurt airport in Germany, which is a 5-6 hour drive from Berlin

Alright I made it back with a set of euro arches.

What am I suppose to do with the existing marker lights? Do i leave them in place and just zip tie them to the body? Do i remove the bulbs or just leave them in place?

Some pics from Berlin

Across from the BMW/MINI dealer where I picked up the arches, I was blown away when I realized it was the AEG Turbine Factory. I remember it from a history of architecture course that i took. I had walked by it on the way to the dealer and thought it was "interesting" but i didn't see the front of the building until i was walking back to the train station.

Saw this at the other MINI dealer in Berlin. At first i thought it was just a car cover but it turned out to be taped with this pattern.

The hotel that i stayed in was within a 5 min walk to the "wall".

I'd clip the bulb housings off, and heat shrink the ends to seal them against the weather. Then fasten them to something.

Can't wait for pics, I may have to do this

My mom's got a piece of the wall somewhere. She was in Berlin around the time it fell. (on a trip...she used to be a stewardess for BA)

I was thinking i'd get some sort of warning light if the bulbs were missing from the circuit. I'm also concerned about having to splice back the bulbs when i want to return the car to stock and that's why i was thinking of just zip tying them. I guess i just need to pop off the arches and see what kind of room i have underneath.
