MotoringFile Magnetic Grille Badges

A fixture of classic Minis (and many English cars from days gone by) was the grille badge. Whether is was the Union Jack or just a simple sign of local club affiliation, they were ways to put a personal stamp on your car and great opportunity to tip your cap to other like-minded enthusiasts. And now MotoringFile and Todd Pearson (from Whiteroofradio fame) have brought the grille badge back with a modern twist.

We have teamed up to offer some exclusive MotoringFile badges meant for the new MINI USA grille badge. And following along with the heritage theme, we’ve created a handful of designs that give a nod to English classic car culture while adding a few modern touches.


With the help of the official MINI USA grille badge holder (part #: 51 13 0 406 752) the MF Magnetic Grille badges can easily be installed on every MINI available with any of the various grilles. And magnetic badges are inexpensive and easy to swap out depending on your mood.

Here’s just a small sample of what is available (Click on each to view larger):

The magnetic badges are printed on gloss stock that is UV coated to protect against fading over time. Each badge is priced at $7.50.


For those that would rather have stickers, we’ve heard your requests! We are now proud to also offer sticker versions of our MotoringFile Magnetic Grille badges. Each sticker is $4.50 and is made with the same UV coated material as the magnetic badges (sans the magnet).

Look for updated designs every week!

You can get your official MINI grille badge holder at any one of the MotoringFile sponsors.
