2006 Mini Cooper S Stock Rally Light Mod
My stock auxiliary rally light kit for my 2006 MCS arrived this weekend along with blue replacement bulbs to match the Xenon headlights. I've been working through the installation instructions using archived DIY documents for a 2002 MCS that I found at Motoringfile.com. Mini doesn't provide instructions with the kit since this is usually a dealer installed accessory but since I've branched into the 'modding' arena with my MCS I'm tackling the installation and wiring myself. If you haven't seen a Mini with rally lights, they're the little 'headlights' that mount between the real headlights but in front of the grill in-line with the bonnet stripes like the ones shown in this image.
The technical expertise of those at North American Motoring have helped quite a bit so far and I'm targeting an upcoming weekend to rip into the wiring harness and cutting into the knee bolster for the activation switch. Wish me luck.
